boston birthdays, 2003
On Friday, August 1,
one we know had a birthday today, but
- Christina baked cupcakes
- Robert brought armloads
of flowers home with him from work (in the rain),
- and Wellesley Big-Sister
Cori arrived by bus from New York for the weekend, and a joint birthday
celebration. We met her at the bus at 11:00, ate dumplings and eggplant
at the Taiwan Cafe, and then stayed up late talking and sampling desserts
for the party.
On Saturday, August 2,
- Cori turned 29,
- Christina, Robert,
and Cori prepared for a party of Hobbit-like proportions,
- and people arrived
to help them celebrate: Ghaz and Alyssa (late, after cricket), Ben and Lise
(late, after drinking), Jef, Debbie, Tamar and Jason, Bob, Howard, Valentina,
Kristijin and Olga, and Cori's friend Michael. Everyone ate a lot, played
some Apples to Apples, ate some more, knocked down a killer-whale pinata
on the porch that miraculously didn't end up on the street or through a
window, ate even more, and played a large, crazy, three-team game of Taboo.
Sadly, all the food disappeared before we could photograph it.
On Sunday, August 3,
- Robert's Grandma Helena
- and Robert, Christina,
Richard, Ada, and Helena went out to the Stockyard for lobster pie (in the
rain) to celebrate.
On Monday, August 4,
- Christina turned 28,
- Christina and Robert
watched movies and ate ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner dessert,
- and Christina, Robert,
Jef, and Lise went out for lots and lots of sushi (in the rain), bringing
a fine weekend of birthdays and eating (and rain) to an end.
