Another 13 hour party

Our good friend Lilian turned 39 this weekend. As is our group’s want, we pooled our resources and threw one heck of a party out at the house in Itaipú. The house is all but deserted these days, but that just made it easier for everyone to camp out on the floor overnight. (No drinking and driving!)

So it was 10 hours of BBQ with a DJ mixing it up followed by 3 hours winding down with Victor playing old standards on the guitar. In spite of the tepid weather, the kids enjoyed the pool.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Here are the kids in front of what must be the largest stag horn fern on the planet.

Just for the record, I am not the only one who cannot stay perky for the full 13 hours.

The next day we fired up the BBQ once again to finish off the meat (not to mention work our way through the left over beer).

In case you are not familiar… hammocks were made for the day after a rockin’ party.

Hi Jim! Just discovered your blog and reading your old posts I came across 2 recipes: Jell-O shots and a Caipirinha Cream Pie. Could you possibly email the recipes to me please? Love your blog, keep posting!

Brazilian bbq parties are the best

Marcelo - I will get those to you!

Rachel - you are welcome at the pool any time.

Fiona - oh honey, you don't know the half of it! Some parties go for a day and a half!
