We dove into the cake as soon as we all sang Happy Birthday and thanked everyone for coming out and helping us pull this off.
And the story behind the cake: Mama has walked around for the past two years saying "I'm almost 50 you guys...do this for me!" It got annoying after about the first year, and then we turned it into a joke on her cake. Kudos to Dad for thinking of that one!

|Miss Helen's camera and Mama's water...both things that never leave their side.|

|Mr. Billy (old family friend) and his precious cup of coffee.|
|Kaley and Miss Helen.|
|Miss Danielle and Mr. Lennie.|

|Lots of laughter! Aunt Karen left and Miss Danielle & Furlough Five right.|
One of the cool things about the Coffee Shack is that you don't have to pay anything to reserve the room for whatever you want...they just go on the fact that they'll get a lot of money for food and coffee. And boy did they ever...there was TONS of coffee cups sitting around.
