Chinapalooza 2010 – The Main Event

So, Saturday night we were all to gather at the home of one of the families for dinner.  We have been to this family’s house before and they always have the best parties! 

The theme for the gathering was “carnival fun.”  So much to do!  First there was a bouncy “carousel.”

DSCN4259Next was a table with jars of candy.  Everyone was to guess at how many candies were in each jar.  Also, a small suitcase was available to drop off our items for a time capsule.  Of course, we forgot our items and still need to mail them to be included. 

DSCN4261I don’t have many photos, as Big Tuna was the designated photographer.  However, no detail was too small!  Goody bags with all sorts of fun and special items.  Photos of our girls.   

DSCN4260 Yummy, yummy appetizers.  Vintage sodas such as “Bubble Up” in glass bottles.  Does anyone else remember those?  All sorts of fun things for the kids to do, such as a magician, and face painting.

All too soon the evening came to an end.  What a wonderful reunion. 

Oh, by the way, you may be wondering the outcome of the candy guessing contest.  The Queen won the lemon drops; Big Tuna won the gumballs; and The Princess won the lollipops and the red licorice strips.  Yes, the beach crew won ALL of the candy.  But we did share…and still are!
