It is PARTY TIME!
The house is decorated and could not be more perfect! The slideshow was playing with some awesome music! Thanks Max for pulling the slideshow together! It was wonderful!
The Popcorn Bar is ready!
And super cute....never mind that I thought we would need 10 big bags of popcorn and we only used two. Details, details, details!
Speaking of details...look at this little jar of Smarties with this cute sign.
The cake was un-boxed!
The guests of honor were dressed and ready! This is the only picture I got with the four of them in the same shot! The gorgeous girl in the picture is Carlos' girlfriend. She is also a graduating Senior. Happy smiles all around.
Moms loving on their boys. I know someone took a picture of me and Tyler, but I have no idea what camera it ended up on. There were a TON of cameras in action all afternoon.
The Street Taco guys showed up and set up. It was a great operation. They brought with them a 75 pound rack of deliciously seasoned pork (the orange beehive looking thing in the picture)! The meat was rotating on this big giant rotisserie and they shaved bits of meat off with a knife as it was needed and served it up with these small corn tortillas, topped with a combo of pineapple, onions and cilantro. They had several salsa choices to put on your tacos that were outstanding. For a "come and go" event that lasted five hours it was a perfect choice. Everything was served piping hot because they shaved off the meat as it was needed.
The food was a huge hit and I would highly recommend these guys to anyone.
Guests started arriving and Tyler was happy to have some of his theatre buds show up.
The little brothers warmed up the Photo Booth.
The food smelled great and people started getting in line to try it out.
Beautiful little tacos with a huge punch of flavor.
They also brought beans and rice. We had tons of appetizers like cheeseballs, dips, cheese and crackers, fruit kabobs, chips and salsa. So much food!
Marcela and Cindy are happy the party is underway!
Chip chillaxing by the pool!
Anna and Kaitlyn continued to help at the party along with their friend Sara Beth.
They took tons of pictures with Cindy's very cool old school Polaroid camera.
Such a fun idea and the pictures turned out great!
Within an hour the place with crawling with people!
Beth and Tony were there!
Hubby entertaining some of the young guys.
Beth and Tyler. Man has he grown since she first laid eyes on him as a four year old!
Chip had to get in on the Ms. Beth action!
My turn! She is and has been such a wonderful friend to me and I sure do love her!
Hanging out in the sunroom!
This house has so many wonderful seating areas and people were able to spread out and not be crowded at all. Fantastic!
Fun in the photo booth.
The boys from the neighborhood were all there. So awesome to see what fine young men they have turned into. How blessed we are!
Hanging with friends.
Peggy and Cindy!
Peggy, Clay and the cutest little patootie ever. His name is Grey and I wanted to take him home.
Jake arrived. Now the party can start!
Let's cute the cake!
Anna and Allie are here! Great girls!
Allie is Tyler's friend that is also going to ASU!
Sun Devils are getting some of the best kids Round Rock has to offer!
The Vasquez clan hanging in the sunroom.
Tyler getting in line for another round of tacos.
Ms. Conner dropped by for a visit.
More guests enjoying the beautiful weather.
Tyler's theatre gang. Can theatre kids be called a gang? Probably not. Let's call them his theatre posse! No, that probably isn't right either. How about his theatre troupe? No, too formal.
They are his peeps. That is what they are....his peeps.
Tyler had to leave his party early to go direct a play at school! It was so nice of our friends to change the party time so he could attend for the first three hours. He had a great time.
The party went on without him.
Me and my sweet Chip!
Dad and Chip.
Who's party is this anyway?
Love this picture of Cindy, her sister Susan and their beautiful mother, Tita!
Lovely women inside and out.
The Templetons (minus BJ) came by!
Street tacos are a huge hit and the beehive of meat is getting smaller.
Fun in the photo booth with some beautiful young women. I think the "I'm With Stupid" made an appearance in almost every single shot!
Me and Nancy. Just a sweet and precious friend.
Me and Hubby!
There were about six takes of this picture before he would stop rolling his eyes back in his head of sticking his tongue out. Behave!
The Templeton kids getting in on the action.
Sunroom pow wow!
Things winding down. Ryan and John still have big smiles for the camera!
Clay is thrilled that he gets to share his chair!
Love this picture! Peggy and Ryan and Marcela and Carlos!
Then they were photo bombed!
Sweet neighborhood mommas! These gals are just the best and I am so happy we are raising our kids together! It takes a village and this is an amazing village!
Me and my girls. We had so much fun!
I think that is the sign of a party well done, when the hosts have as much fun as the guests!
Blessed, blessed, blessed.
Two weeks from yesterday these boys walk across the stage to get their high school diplomas and begin the next chapter of their lives.
We need the boys to all graduate from college at the same time so we can do it again!
Hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures from the party.
Now, moving on to the next thing...Chip's birthday! My boy is going to be 12 on Thursday!
