Leo is 4
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
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.
