Especially the chocolate-strawberry cake!
The food was mouth-watering. There was marinated chicken on the grill, steak on the grill, two kinds of potato salad, chips (for the sake of vocabulary: "tortilla crisps" :) ) with homemade bean salsa, veggies, and fruit salad.

After the party we headed home for some rest before beginning the next round of adventures.
