So when she messaged me on Facebook and said that her grandmother Marianne was turning 100, I knew I had to be there. I only hope that I can make it to such a ripe old age with so much vigor!
Her birthday party was at Le Bateau Ivre in Berkeley, a wonderful French restaurant with amazing service. Here are some photographs of it all. Enjoy!
I think everyone should be required to wear a lei on their hundredth birthday. I know I will!
AnnMarie, you're awesome! And you have the best smile ever.
I loved all these kids! Super cute.
One of the best things about the party was the huge mix of ages there. From 1 to 100, most ages were represented!
Some delicious food.

And time to blow out the candles! Fortunately there were a few less than 100.
Mmmm, delicious cake.
And some photographs of the family.
Thanks AnnMarie and Marianne (and Adela, Aurora, Steve, Valerie, Richard, Paul, and Bill . . . did I forget anyone?). It was a wonderful party. Hopefully these photos will help you all remember it for a long, long time.
