The evening started off with a potluck dinner served beneath a tent decked out in twinkle lights ala the gazebo at prom. All foods brought to the potluck had to have been mentioned somewhere in the Twilight Saga books. Goodies included pizza, lemonade, popcorn, and enchiladas. As you can see below, Edward especially enjoyed the spicy Mexican dish.
As regular readers of this blog know, Edward enjoys an adult beverage or two when he parties, so we made him bartender for the evening. He was over-the-moon filling all sorts of drink orders and allowing us to sample a few concoctions that he has created over the years.
After all of the party-goers had their fill of dinner, Edward was presented with his birthday cake. He was concerned 108 candles would create a fire hazard and suggested we use just one. Notice the cake is Key lime, one of his favorites. He says it reminds him of the time he briefly lived in Florida during the 1980s. Apparently Edward worked the night shift at Disney World in the ride maintenance department until someone caught him snacking on the animals.
The rest of the evening was filled with talk and laughter. Edward recalled many adventures that happened over his 108 years, though he made us blush by saying all of his best memories occurred after meeting the Twilightland folks. Edward, the feeling is completely mutual.
