Wow, today was a busy day. I helped celebrate my sister and friend’s birthdays.
First off was Susana’s birthday in Santa Cruz. My mom and I drove up to Riva’s on the wharf to meet Susana, Kayla and Rex for lunch. I had my ususal Fisherman’s Platter (calamari, fish, and chips). There was some slight detour-ing going and leaving the pier as a marching band competition was occurring by the Boardwalk. Luckily Kayla was able to guide us back to her house for cake. We even beat Susana and Rex back to the house! (pics posted on the photos page)
Later on that night I was invited to my friend David’s 40th birthday celebration at El Burro’s. There must have been a lot of people celebrating their 40th birthday there as I almost ended up with the wrong party for dinner! It was the first time i met most of David’s family (mom, dad, and his sisters). It was a large celebration that lasted several hours. Good food, good cake, and good conversation. Oh, and afterward we went to go catch a showing of [Team America] at Century 21. My review on that later.
