Eat Drink And Be 40

Last Saturday, B and I met up for our friend Big Dan!'s 40th birthday. It was at this newer place in Seattle called Von Trapps and I actually had a lot of fun.
Big Dan!'s wife, Jenny, rented a side area and bocce court so I learned to play bocce and indulged in cider or three or four two.

 It'd been a while since we'd seen this group of friends so it was fun to hang out, try out a new place and just have some fun.
B and the birthday boy.
This little Mama had a baby in January and we haven't really seen her since then so it was fun catching up and talking babies. We're the only ones of this group of friends who have babies so it's fun to finally have someone else to talk to about mom stuff.

I'm not sure why B wasn't in this picture but the three girls he went to high school with (the one on the end was his prom date, I think) and the guys were added in throughout the years. I think it's so cool he's still friends with people in high school since I talk to no one but the guy who used to be my best friend. 

 Big Dan!'s (you have to say it with a lot of enthusiasm, it's a joke from Labor Day a few years ago) thing was wearing a go pro all night. I imagine most of the video was pretty boring, but we kept teasing that he should somersault down the bocce court with this ball and see what happens. 

 Von Trapps typically stops selling these big huge boots at 10pm, but somehow someone convinced our server to bring Dan one so a bunch of people ended up sharing it. I just kept thinking of all the backwash in that thing. No thank you!

We ended up leaving shortly after this happened 'cause I ended  up super tired and almost fell asleep at the little bar B and I were sitting. Maybe it was the fact that I got up early with the Bambinos or it could have been the cider since I haven't been drinking for a few months but I ended up falling asleep in the car and B thought it was so funny taking pictures of me (I sleep with my mouth open.)

I'm so glad we found a sitter (thank sis!) and went to Dan's birthday, we always have a lot of fun with these friends

  1. This place looks awesome! Indoor bocce is genius! My Italian family always plays it at our family reunions and there is a lot of yelling and swearing going on, lol.

  2. What a blast! That looks like such a fun night!

  3. There's a place in Brooklyn just like this. One of my friends had her going away party there. Such a fun place to people watch too!!

  4. Awwwww, Von Trapps like the Sound of Music!!!!!!!

    Looks like it was so much fun. I'm attracted to the idea of that huge boot of beer, but I know it would get warm before I could finish it, and that's a bummer.


I'd love to hear what you have to say, I always ALWAYS write back so please make sure you have an email attached to your profile :)
