matt’s first fortieth birthday celebration

When asked what Matt wanted to do to celebrate his fortieth turn around the sun all he said was that he wanted a regular Friday night with who we have started referring to as “the Philly group.” And being that his birthday isn’t for a few weeks I figured he would never ever guess that last Friday was going to be that Friday. I got empanadas and Spanish rice…. Margaritas and balloons….an ice cream cake! Friends brought all the taco things and buffalo chicken and delicious goodies from an Italian bakery… the kids swam a little… hung out inside a little…. And it was just what the birthday man wanted! So it begins, the first of many! Thank you to our friends for their generosity and all of the things!
