Harry's Birthday

Friday was Harry's birthday. Sarah treated us to a wonderful dinner at Giovanni's. Complete with Hyatt's delicious ice cream cake!Harry tried to blow out the giant candle . . .But eventually settled for blowing out the little candle at the bottom. In spite of being really, really full - we all had to try some of the ice cream cake. Here's where Harry's frosting ended up. After our amazing Hyatt dinner, we all walked down to Godfather's, where we invited some friends to join us for a couple of drinks. We were greeted by this giant banner out front. Inside friends were waiting to share a drink and some laughs. Here is Kim seated, Brad, Barry and Mike. I think Mike may have gotten a head start on the drinks. Barry, Jim, Maggie, Kathryn and friends share some good company and conversation. Rhea gave Harry an underwater light for his birthday present. It quickly became a light saber, zapping Brad who suddenly became "the dark side" foe. Dueling light sabers. Chris had a psychodelic one with flashing lights. Harry's birthday cake, complete with fish and underwater scene, courtesy of Godfather's. Thanks Ron and Scott, you made it a fun night for Harry and his friends. Harry and the band, singing Happy Birthday. Mike giving us his ninja pose. Good thing he's a dive instructor and not a marial arts trainer. We asked them to do something dorky for the camera - just kidding, I'm not sure who talked them into this pose. We shooed the boys out of the booth for a bit for some girls chats. I like Cathy's pose in this photo. She was only drinking coke. Here's Rhea enjoying her slice of Godfather's birthday cake. Harry and Steve. Kim and Harry. Kim and Steve are friends and fellow Rotary members. Here's Brad , Kim and Mike in the background, with Maggie coming over to wish Harry a Happy Birthday. Maggie is the most photogenic person I know. She always looks great. Here's four of us squeezed into one side of the booth - Kelli, Harry, Cathy and Angelo. I think Harry and I might be a little tired. Barry and Maggie signing the birthday banner. Cathy helping us take the banner down. It was a really fun evening, with plenty of friends, plenty of laughs. Thanks everyone for joining us in celebrating Harry's birthday!

Happy belated Birthday Harry! Looks like a blast!

(I didn't....but I wanted to comment on your fall dinner post - looked wonderful! What a great tradition. Sad though to know it was your last on Saipan.)

Great post on the party, Mom. By the way, it was Angelo who suggested the pose. You mean it's not cute?
