This is a belated birthday post for Papi’s fifth birthday – August 24, 2012.
He planned his birthday date with mom and dad and invited all of his sibling. His spot of choice was Chuck E. Cheese’s. He even found his own coupon.
We went during the early hours to avoid a crowd. Papi passed out the tokens and they ventured off. It was nice to have Veggie Tales music playing in the background instead of pop music.
The kids shared a cheese pizza and had a sliver of chocolate cake.
We returned home to
detox from the sugar and excitement rest. Rose and I prepped for our birthday-buddies’ dinner with Nana and Papa.
We made one of Papi’s favorite dishes, baked ziti and tri-tip, it was gluten free. Turns out, Papi isn’t fond of pasta anymore but he did get his fill of meat.
Rose made a delicious gluten free chocolate strawberry cake.
The birthday buddies opened their gifts from Nana and Papa.
Papi received an eclectic guitar and a digital camera.
The night ended with a late night birthday swim.
May the Good Lord bless you and keep you.
