Almost everyone we love most in the world was able to come.

There were a few who either live too far away to make the trip or were enjoying some relaxation in Mexico who had to be with us in heart instead.

The Candy bar was for the kids to take home treat bags.

We had Augustus Gloop’s Chocolate Bars, Violet Beauregard’s Chewing Gum, Veruca Salt’s Golden Eggs, Mike Teevee’s Mike n Ikes, and Charlie Bucket’s Wonka Mix
