Such a momentous occasion was worthy of a special cake, Karen decided! And since her Dad and I hail from the "flower power" and "groovy" years, she decided to replicate his prized 1971 VW Bus!
Is that not the cutest thing?
It tasted good too! We made quite a dent in it, although it seemed a shame to cut it!
We took him to dinner at his new favorite Pizza place, Tony's, in Fullerton. Patrick and TiJae were able to join us.
The deep dish pizzas are MASSIVE, and the cheese and ingredients are SO thick - the pizza weighs a ton and the best that some of us could do was two pieces and we were stuffed!
Patrick found the Ranch Dressing!
We had too much pizza. Patrick and TiJae took home some pizza and so did we!
One of Michael's favorite gifts was something I'd looked for for three years. A favorite show of his, as a child, was Whirlybirds. It was about helicopters. Unlike The Fugitive and Cannon and other old shows he loved, this one was NOT available. I finally found it online and it made him grin from ear to ear. On his birthday, he watched about three episodes!
He had a tiny cake that morning with gifts - that little lumpy cake was made from the bits left over from the VW cake... it was sad looking, but delicious!
Happy Birthday Michael!
