Friday night, March 12th, found 16 of us celebrating Benny's birthday at his favorite Mexican restaurant, Ricardo's.

Here is the honoree with Jacque and the obligatory sombrero.

Suzette, Deann & Marc

CD & Debbie.

These are good friends of both Dave & Suzette & Benny & Jacque.

Dave, acting up as usual! Don't you love that mischievous grin?

Aric, Mickey & Susan

Lorrie, Josh & Daden. Josh is Benny's son. Baby Max was also present but asleep in his carrier and we failed to get a picture :o(

Mickey with daughter, Jacque.

Marc, Deann & Oksana.

Aric & Oksana with grandpa, Mickey.

Granddaughter, Jessica & her boy friend, Josh, were missing tonight. Jessica's work as usual.

It was a grand time of celebrating Benny's birthday and family and friends, plus some wonderful Mexican cuisine. We skipped the birthday cake and had miniature sopapilla's with powdered sugar for dessert.

Great pictures. I think it's neat that you are able to have frequent get-togethers like that. And now with Deann and her kids in the family, looks like there will be even more!
