Yes, I know its May but that was the theme of my Dad's 60th Birthday. Instead of doing the way played out over the hill we embraced his age.
I was in charge of the cake. This wasn't exactly what we had talked about with the baker. The colors were off, and although I was mad about it the entire drive up to his house, in the end everyone loved it so I guess it was a hit. For the record it was supposed to be air brushed black and the colors were supposed to be more vibrant. Oh well, next time find some where besides a local grocery store to decorate the cake.
The party was potluck style, with Oysters on the BBQ and my Dad steamed up a big bucket of clams. I am pretty sure I ate my weight in seafood, but I was pleased on Monday morning that I had not gained any weight over the weekend, so I did something right.
