September Birthday Party at La Lunita

On Sunday, September 14, the September Birthday Group enjoyed a fun night at La Lunita.  The event was hosted by Annette and Mary, and the champagne flowed quite freely.  The language of the fan got several interpretations, as did a candle in the shape of raspberry ice cream.  A big surprise came when the cake (baked by Jen) was presented, and each person with a September birthday had to take a bite without using a fork---result????  Your face got smashed into the cake!  Hopefully, this will NOT become a tradition, but despite uncomfortable moments for the smashees, everyone else sure enjoyed the spectacle!

 All in all, the good company and good conversation made the evening a "smashing" success.
