The trouble with having a birthday in February is that the weather is so unpredictable. Here in Northern Arizona February is still very much the middle of winter, so I knew while planning Aubrey's birthday with her friends that it would have to be an inside affair. However, when planning her family party in Mesa, I had great vision for sunshine, green grass, and games of croquet. Well, nature had other plans and it was another cold, wet, rainy weekend. But you know me, the party must go on! So, after setting up everything on my wonderful Aunt's patio, seeing the hurricane winds blow in, then re-setting everything indoors, the party finally happened.
The party in Mesa was also special because we joined it with My Aunt Rita who turned 70, with My little cousin who turned 7, and my sweet Aubrey! And that day it wasn't any of their actual birthdays so it really was a "Very Merry Unbirthday!"
The party is Mesa was so much fun. We had everyone wear hats for the Mad Hatter Tea Party, showed the classic cartoon (that a lot of people hadn't seen) and ate, and ate, and ate!
