Garden Party

Tonight we went to a pre-wedding party for a couple we've never met. That usually means that I won't know anyone else and will spend most of the evening wondering what time it is... So not a problem when you have a young child with you. Oliver was, once again, the hit of the party. Before I knew it, it was almost 10:00 and he was still going. Perhaps the 3 gingersnaps he ate had something to do with it...

It was the perfect night for a garden party. Not to mention that it was the perfect garden! I so wish it didn't take a green thumb to grow a beautiful garden. I can't keep anything alive in the house, nevermind outside. It was decorated with big, colorful paper lanterns of different shapes and sizes. The tables had layers of organza tablecloths to match and were covered with treats and snacks of the gourmet variety. I would just love to have a garden like this to entertain in!

They had a little jazz trio called "Catfish Willie" playing in one corner. Oliver couldn't get enough of the band. He watched every move they made, danced and clapped. Then he'd sign for more after each song was sung! The band got a kick out of it, especially when Oliver insisted on shaking hands with each one of them before we left.

These guys were great - I can't find much about them on the net, although I thought someone said they're playing at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. But, I can't seem to find them on the list. Has anyone else heard them play?

Why am I not surprised that Ollie loves jazz and swing! I think you've got a heartbreaker (or dare I say "playah, playah") on your hands...
