One of my favorite memories of my childhood birthdays is getting to pick a restaurant at which to have a celebratory dinner. I clearly picked venues based on their names, winding up at places like The Penguin Inn and Charlie Brown's. Joseph chose his based on cuisine. He's a big fan of Mexican food so it was no surprise he asked to go to a neighborhood staple, Guapo's. The boy loves him some guacamole, chips & salsa, rice & beans, and steak quesadillas.
He had mentioned to Brent that he also wanted to go to Guapo's because "they put the big hat on you and sing." I had no idea what he was talking about, but I guess he had seen this very thing happen before.
Our muchacho is now cinco!
Afterwards he got to open his gifts from us. Hot Wheels have been a favorite of late, so we got Joseph all kinds of tracks and curves and loops to build his own raceway. It was an absolute hit!
