MJ is 10
Mathilda and I celebrated her birthday with a girls-only day. First stop (after presents) was Cafe Du Monde.
As we were walking back to our car in the quarter, a balloon man asked us about acquiring a balloon sculpture. We got a birthday flower. There were other tourists around us getting balloons and the guy asked us all, what do you get when you cross a frog with sparrow. He then broke into song-with body motions. And we all followed along HOP-PY BIRD-DAY TO YOU... hopping and flapping our arms and singing to Mathilda. Priceless.
A trip to the bookstore and a favorite caesar salad lunch.
Grown up girl hair cut.
Dinner at Little Tokyo's Habachi with Opa. Linda and the Mark Mayer crew. (Followed by a Brocato's ice cream cone, stuffed with candles)
