This weekend was pretty fantastic. Here's why....
I'm so very glad you didn't think the KY had anything to do with a certain lubricant.

That little guy turned 7!! I offered him his choice of a birthday breakfast and he chose the ever scrumptious Hamburger Helper. So, the little birthday boy got some cheeseburger macaroni and was as happy as could be! We had a tiny party planned for him on Sunday, so we didn't celebrate a whole lot on his actual birthday (explaining that to a 7 year old is a little tough...).
Sunday was actually my birthday (I turned 29 again). It was significantly better than last year. My day started out with a birthday breakfast made by Elliot:
|Peanut butter and banana sandwich. Oh Yeah.|
This tiny party I referenced earlier was our first annual PORK FEST and it was a freaking blast. Okay, so it wasn't a tiny party. We had a good 80 people there (including a substantial amount of children). My husband and I have wanted to do a pig roast for some time--we figured this year was the time.
And it was awesome. A huge success.
Dan, the pig guy, arrived around 8:00 am to start roasting Mr Piggy and he (the pig) was ready to consume at approximately 3:30 pm. Yes, that's over 6 hours of roasting. Now, to not offend anyone I shant post a photo of said swine, but do know he was pretty good and perhaps not big enough because by the end of the day, Mr Piggy was gone. Completely.
What I love about these kind of parties is we bring together people from all over--family from all sides, friends who've never met. It was pretty fantastic and a damn good day. Here are some photos...

|Love this. My mom drinking a Smithwicks. |
The woman has had 2 strokes but still knows a good beer when she sees one.
|We had a tent. And tons of people.|
|Mario, uh, I mean Elliot with his cake.|
|The house of bounce.|
|For an amateur, my husband put on a darn good fireworks show!|
Excuse the blurriness of the left hand side of this photo. But I thought the fireworks part was kinda neato.
|What's a party without your own custom pens?|
We have extra-if you want one, e-mail me with your address and it's yours. Free.
So where does the fat ass fit into all of this?
One of the last nights before Tomas and Honza left, we went out for Mexican food and decided (more like I kind of begged) to do a few tequila shots. The waiter recommended this brand and I must have expressed my liking of it...because the above is what my mother in law got for me for my birthday. Nice gift, eh? Yeah, you should totally try it. It's dang good.
So having friends in town, Elliot's birthday, my birthday and Pork Fest were all pretty awesome. It was a pretty fantastic weekend.
