Mom's 75th Birthday...SURPRISE Party

{ We all waited patiently...Traffic held everything up... }

{ Fina, Mom - Birthday Girl, Uncle Johnny and my Tia Margarita... }

{ Cantineros Jesse and Lupe... }

{ Niki, Aubrey and Joe...The Velardes }

We all gathered at Lupe and Jesse's home in West Covina.
Traffic held everything up for an hour but once we got going we all had FUN!!!

My Mom was so surprised by the outpouring of family and friends. The food was great with fresh-grilled tacos from the Taco Girl, foods from El Ranchito, Casa Luz, California Pizza Kitchen, music by Aaron, birthday cake from Chintown in LA and of course a great video show, a compilation of fotos from my Mom's life...Recuerdos.

There were lots of hugs while everyone enjoyed sharing memories and of course promising to keep in touch.

Thanks to everyone for making this a night to remember for my Mom and all of us.
