Last night we stayed at the resort where my grand daughter's 'fiesta de quinceañera' was held. The English translation means "expensive, but crazy fun party for a girl that is just a couple of months shy of legally driving alone" or something close to that. It was fun, she was stunningly beautiful and it was surreal to see her in a ceremony where it seems like only yesterday she was a tiny 5 year old 'flower girl' commanding the very same dance floor at my son's wedding reception. I got to visit with all the kids and grandkids, along with one in attendance that has not yet arrived, but who we'll find out more about next weekend when her parents reveal the gender. That will be interesting since my grandson avowed to me that unless he gets a brother, he's coming to live with my wife and I. His older sister, while alone, said the same thing, except her demand was made if she doesn't get a baby sister...I hope their parents are prepared! I was glad family and friends were able to attend, some from out of state. Heck, even my wife's ex husband and his wife were very cordial, I was pleasantly surprised, especially for the kids. Besides the great food, adult beverages, music and dancing, they brought in a photo booth which was a popular thing going back many years, spurring my son and grandson to decide we needed a "Blackcloud" trip to the booth! Thank goodness they inherited my son's mother's looks!
