Birthday Jamborees

A weekend spent celebrating birthdays with family far and wide.

On Friday Superdad and I hosted Bob's birthday at our house. The gang:


All this eating and playing proves too much for Hank who falls asleep mid-meal:


And out go the candles-- Happy Birthday, Bob!



Saturday we traveled south for Diana's birthday. Here's the gang minus Dad:


The meal was a group effort and it was so, so good. Dad grilled steaks (sent by Quantum Void!), Superdad and I put together twice baked potatoes, I roasted fresh asparagus, my sister, Cloe (a.k.a. BakerBabe) threw together a fresh garlic vinegrette for an arugula salad and a delicious white cake with a chocoate cream cheese frosting.



The birthday girl seems happy to feed Elisabeth the leftovers. Happy Birthday, Diana!

Hey-- the meal Friday night was also very good!! (The stew, the salad, the bread, and the b-day cake).

Many many thanks for a good time.

Elena Jane (Sarah's daughter) certainly enjoyed playing "Ring Around the Rosey" over and over over (LOL).

Terri said...

My question, too, Alex. ;)

Happy birthday, guys. Diana, you're what, 21 now?

Bob said...

I think you are referring to Marianne, who is the new au pair for my girlfriend Sarah.

She is from the Netherlands, and she will be working for her until around Labor Day.

Aw, thanks!

Yes, it does seem that way this time of year. Starting in November (well, now October with my kids) everyone's birthdays are condensed into a three- month time frame.

Now we'll have a respite until May.

"Starting in November(well, now October with my kids) everyone's birthdays are condensed into a three- month time frame."

I guess my birthday (September) is not important enough to make the list of condensed fall birthdays.

move the date.

Ah, but if I added yours I would have had to say four months. Not as tight a time frame as three. See my dilemma?
