Now that Matilda Isabella, my youngest granddaughter, has turned seven on Thursday, it seems that the parties last several days.
Thursday, THE day, she had a little party at her school. Then that evening, off to Pollo Feliz we went since that is where Sebastian and Matilda wanted to go. The reason, of course, is not the food, but the play area!
The mix of customers is very interesting. Lots of business people in suits! Suits are unusual to see in San Miguel. Large families eating together and we were the only small birthday party for a child, even though there were other children in the restaurant.
The last time we were there was for my son's birthday. We ate, we had cake that I brought and that was that.
NOT this time! I did bring an angel food cake with whipped cream frosting that I made for Matilda. It
was a family tradition when I was growing up in my family. Then it became a tradition for my children.
The little girl statue that is put in the middle of the cake must be 60 plus years old! I also have a little boy
one that will be used for Sebastian next year.
We ate chicken, salad and fries. I was seated looking out the windows so couldn't see what was happening behind me. Imagine all of our surprise when we were swarmed with boas, beads, hats and a frame!
her piece of cake and whip cream. She did with gusto! That too is a tradition, I'm told. Hmmmm.
The whole thing was surprising, fun and unique. The kids sure had fun.
Today, Saturday, there is a roller skating party at the new facility that I wrote about a couple of days ago.
I left after the kids had played in the big play area for about an hour and eaten pizza. They were attempting to roller skate when I left. I presume by now gifts are being opened and another cake, Tres Leche, is being eaten by all the kids and parents.
I'll write more about that later with photos. Whew, if there is this much going on at seven, can you imagine all the excitement at seventeen?
