We had a big surprise waiting for us in the garden when we got back - lucky for us, our friend who watered the garden while we were gone wasn't looking for our zucchini, so here's what we had when we got back (and there were more than this!!!):
So that you can compare this to something - here are the zukes next to a magazine, making them about a foot long:
And, they've been delicious to eat. I've even gotten Wes to eat some of the squash and zucchini :) Speaking of delicious, we found a new recipe Sunday when I was making dessert to go with the chicken Mary and Chris were grilling for us: brownie cookies - YUM! Once they were done, I topped them with glazed melted chocolate and some pecans :D
Now to the party; a group of friends from work all went out to celebrate my birthday since we were gone last week. We went to a Mexican restaurant. Who wouldn't want to celebrate with Mexican and margaritas???

Proud parents, Leslie and Lee, Deanna and Michael, whose b'day was also celebrated :)

Apparently, it's Mexican tradition to get scared to death, have a sombrero put on your head and whipped cream spooned into your mouth by the waiter. Don't worry guys, you only took a year or so off my life when they dropped that tray.
June birthdays rock!
Me and Ashley - thanks for putting it all together, it was sooooo much fun :D
