We were invited to a double birthday party on Saturday night. Patrick is married to Vivian (Gerry’s cousin ) and he has a twin brother, Steven. They turned 60 a couple days ago & their wives threw them a big birthday party on the lawn at Steven's beautiful home.
They grew up in the area and have many friends between them that are friends from their childhood. There was a trival pursuit kind of game to see who knew the twins the best. If the answer to the question was Steven you patted you're head & if Patrick you patted your butt. If the answer applied to both, then you patted your head & butt at the same time. The questions were asked if you were incorrect you were out of the game. This went on for many rounds until a male frind won after several tie breaker questions. There was a lot of laughter & jokes flying around during the game.
There was an endless supply of great finger foods, beer, wine and liquor. After all, they are Irish. I managed to try 4-5 different Australian beers and they all were good.
Gerry got to talking with a number of people like she always does so I joined Mike (cousin & father of Vivian & Rachel) on the steps near the outside bar. We had an ideal spot near the beer and the food.
We left the party after midnight & it finally broke up around 4 am Sunday morning. They are party hardy kind of people and love to have a good time.
