Elias turned 4 in late March, It was supposed to be a long day at Disneyland for The Hubby and Eli, so we decided that we’d do our family celebration the next night. Apparently it was TOTALLY packed and after 5 hours of being there they only got on 3 rides (if you count the tram) the entire day. Eli was done and I think The Hubby was, too.
Ruben called me from the road at about 4, and told me that they were coming home but that they got a rain check to go back on another day. Now what was I going to do? I usually make the cake the day of the celebration and here I had nothing. I panicked and luckily Rene called from the market to ask If I needed anything. YES! YES! PLEASE! Can you please buy a cake? He asked what type and size and then hung up.
Later when Rene showed up to pick up Pablo, I asked them if they’d like to stay for cake and to sing happy birthday, he said (it’s Eli’s birthday, and snickered.) sure we can stay! I quickly opened up the cake and. . . nearly hit the floor. He had it written on: Not Happy Birthday, or It’s your Big Day Eli, or You’re turning 4. Nope, Rene had a completely different idea in mind indeed.
You’d have to know Rene. He’s kinda quiet but has a super dry sense of humor. We all got a great laugh (especially The Hubby) and Eli didn’t get what the cake said, anyway. He was just happy to have cake.
