Amy's party was definitely the event of the season. The place looks incredible. Amy is hostess with the mostest and Ben once again out did himself. I am posting a few pictures, but they do not do the place justice. Amy, thank you so much for extending an invitation to us and for you're warm hospitality. You made us feel so welcome. Ray, it was a treat to get to sit down and get to know you.
Amy and Ben. No explanation needed

My thanks to Amy & Ray for a great party. Your yard is absolutely amazing!!! I was so happy to get to actually meet more TCers. Me and the Mother unit don't do well in heat so only stayed for a couple of hours, but had a wonderful time. Kudos for posting pix.

WOW! Amy, your pad is incredible. Thanks for the opportunity to see it. Please feel free to invite me over anytime!
In the meantime, here are more photos. I know, I know, some of these look like some earlier photos, but they bare repeating.
Here's the incredible main bar on the lower terrace. Front view...
The incredible Tiki Bo Peep, right before feeding the Koi
Some of the many incredible Koi. These are the happiest Koi in the world. Just look at those smiles. Incredible!
Incredible Meandering paths and bridges...
which lead to this Tiki sanctuary. Which just so happens to be incredible.
Found on the upper terrace is this incredible poolside secret mystery hut.
And of course the incredible putting green located on the mid terrace:
On the lower terrace there is a spacious covered stage with huge dance floor. Incredible!
Colorful TC people getting lit up: Okay, well that's a bit predictable.
Huge incredible Tikis:
Oh, and did I mention how incredible this whole place is?
Once again, thanks Amy!
I'm looking forward to the next one!
