TubaDad’s folks flew into town from Texas, and then the whole crew went out for a birthday dinner at Ro and Ree’s fave Chinese restaurant. The girls had potstickers, seafood sizzling rice soup, scallops, and steamed rice with the seafood sprinkles they brought from home.
Then it was home for cake and presents. My folks made yummy Great Wall of China cakes for the girls – the girls gasped when they saw them. They might even love the Great Wall more than Mulan (double gasp).
The spark scooters were a big, big hit:
And they also got Flitter Fairies, which took nine people to figure out (and we’re actually still not sure we did it right).
It was a goooooood birthday. The girls grinned all day, and the festivities continue this weekend. Happy birthday to our big six-year olds. Let’s slow it down a little between birthdays next time, ok?
