Six Flags, Batman and happy birthday, Jorge
We had a very action packed weekend. Curtis and I took Seth to Six Flags. Now you need to remember that we are both nearly 50 years old and not as young as we used to be. The occasion was for Curtis' company picnic and awards ceremony. Curtis got two awards. Yay for my guy! However, the main event was shepherding a 4 yr old little boy around the park in 90 plus temperatures and trying not to die of heat stroke or exhaustion. We had that little boy back in his mother's arms by 4:30 that afternoon. We actually rode several rides that he was old enough to ride. Rather, I should say that Curtis and Seth rode many of the rides. I can't do much anymore with my back but I had fun taking pictures. The highlight of the day was getting to take his picture with Batman and Robin! He was even wearing his own batman cape when we ran across them. Robin was so sweet. He got Seth to cross his arms and try to look like them in the picture. Pretty cute.
Today, we held a surprise 40th birthday party for my Sister in Law, Georganna. Our ruse was to have an all girl lunch at Don Pablo's. This is something we do pretty regularly. The women in our family will have slumber parties, girls night outs, etc. Today, we were having lunch and holding a tiara making contest. In order to be eligible for the "prize", you had to wear it into the restaurant when you walked in. No fair putting it on after you get to the table. Well, of course, George was the only one who actually did it! Too funny. Another funny thing that happened was that the cake decorator put Happy Birthday, Jorge on the cake! While I know that Jorge is George in Spanish, how in the world did that happen? So, when we sang happy birthday, we sang happy birthday, Jorge!
