A BIG day at the Cool House!

Today was a very special day! We got to celebrate Rodrigo's 25th birthday and the "graduation" of our Interns! We filled our glasses, sang a song and then devoured the "Red Velvet" cake (which is a real flavour btw). Happy birthday to our favourite mexican artist and good luck to our interns as they take their first steps on their own.
Rodrigo and the interns........

Those look like allot of candles..........
Taking the first cut!

the wonderful cake!

and even more wonderful wine!

Best Family Friday the 13th! Have a great weekend everyone!
