Kung Fu meets Karate Kid – Happy Birthday to Ben!

October brought Ben’s birthday with friends and neighbors. It was a a “Kung Fu” meets “Karate Kid” themed gig and what fun we had. He celebrated with friend Erik Martin who was also born on Halloween. They were surprised by friends from all over. They didn’t know it until just prior to party time, but they had to wear Karate Suits to the party and were greeted by friends in costumes and food galore!

We had Vietnamese Pho, egg rolls, Japanese curry and Asian cabbage salad. Accompanied by “Rising Sun” Japanese flag cupcakes and a a fortune cookie ice cream cake.

The happy couple cuts the cake – oh these two!

There was a great debate over which tier of cupcakes was more elegantly frosted.

Top or bottom? What’s your vote?

The ladies turned out in great costumes!

Opening gifts with the birthday glasses on. A small group tradition.


Friends came from all over!
