Los Angeles, California: Time seems to fly by as I watch our grandchildren grow and change.
On his first birthday, the kids had a small party in their garden. After, both sides of the family gathered for a dinner of Leo’s favorite foods – salmon and green beans.
By age 2, Leo was at preschool two mornings a week, so his birthday was celebrated with his classmates at his school. Lenny’s mom, Lisa and I prepared simple salads for the party.
His party last year was a huge blow-out with a farm theme. Lisa was just two weeks away from having Lucy, so was not too excited about preparing food for 50 – Lisa ordered fried chicken and potato salad from a local restaurant.
This year the theme was “Camp Leo”. When I arrived in Los Angeles Friday afternoon, Leo asked if I had seen his “logo”. Pretty sure I did not know that word when I was four.
Look at those guns!
Temporary tattoos, of course!
I will be posting more photos of Leo’s party later this week (I have over 100 photos to edit), but I assure you it was a total success.
After the guests had left the party, Leo donned his new Star Wars costume – from his godmother, Angela – and paraded around the school playground while the adults cleaned-up. A very happy boy.
A very happy four year old boy.
Until my next update, I remain, your grandmotherly correspondent.
