another Tapasitas birthday, another sack race
#2 son just can't do things the normal way, he insisted on wearing his BDay crown upside down. I don't tell him he can't.
After weeks of debating, he finally settled on having a party here at the house, with a "bounce house". We sent out regular paper invites we made at home the week of the party. We didn't even request any RSVP.
He has always chose Plucker's for his birthday meal. He surprised us by choosing Tapasitas. But we gladly obliged. They always treat us well there and it's easier/nicer than Plucker's.
Was he excited about his gifts? YES! I think so.
He also got an Original Penguin backpack for summer travel and camping trips. It matches his luggage. I think he was expecting me to ask him to wear the sunglasses correctly, it didn't bother me.
It took us a while to explain that we don't eat marshmallows, they are ammo for the bow.
it's just the right size!
give a boy a bow and sack full of ammo, and he will want to use it right away. I had to ask him to stop aiming at the people at the next table.
#1 son enjoyed oysters on the half shell. So much, that we had to order a second round.
Fantastic service and food from Tapasitas, on west 6th near Whole Foods Flagship store.
The morning of the party, I made three batches of pizza dough (makes 9 dough balls). #1 son asked if he could learn how to press them out and make the crust (I parbaked them ahead of time). He did a great job. I certainly appreciated the help.
We thought it'd be fun to have a sack race, replicate the success from the 4th grade end of year party we hosted last summer. Turns out, kindergarteners are not the same as 4-5th graders. Some tears were shed, but #2 son came in first and he got to choose the prize he wanted really badly, so he was happy...
oh, and this alien came over to enjoy the party as well.
We enjoyed Pizza well into the night. Paradigm Cab from Oakville made a nice pizza pairing.
6 consecutive meals, 5 of them were pizza (we even had pizza for breakfast sunday morning). The pie above is Saint Agur cheese, caramelized onion, Iberico ham and a drizzle of honey.
