We have been celebrating Ray’s birthday all day. Breakfast with Rachael and Ariel at Hugo’s at 11. A snack and chat with Liz and Ron at their apartment in Glendale. Then the official whole family gathering at Sarah and Gregorio’s house in Pasadena for dinner and presents. That started around 3:30 and it is now 11:20 pm.
Gregorio grilled chicken and vegetables, Sarah cooked up rice and beans, Liz made a huge salad, Rachael baked a honey-sweetened apple cake and I made a honey-sweetened chocolate bundt cake. The food was delicious and the company even better. Luna presented Grandpa with a poster filled with family pictures over the years, Nico toddled around looking cute and two of Sarah and Gregorio’s friends came to help celebrate.
Ray is very happy.
I’m happy too.
A birthday filled with love. Nothing better.
