rooftop party

Last Thursday night we were invited to a rooftop party. I promised pictures. Here they are -- thanks John and Samantha, who live next door to us here.

So, as I said, it was our landlord's 32nd birthday party, but also the opportunity to have a party for his wife who is 7 months pregnant. She sat, surrounded by sweets, as each person came and sat next to her to feed her something and to receive a sweet in return. (The colorful backgrounds are sheets that were hung around the edges of the roof. I think it might have been chilly otherwise, and certainly less festive!).

This is her mother-in-law.

Her father-in-law.

Her husband.

And, of course, you knew this was coming: me!

  1. Lovely pictures of the rooftop party- so colorful!! And so much food.....
    Hope to see Nitzan next weekend in Chicago and perhaps Evan and Jess will touch base with Shaked at USC.
    Is the weather getting mild sunny and warm?? Are you staying at the same apartment for the duration?? Mom
