What Made It Special
My Favorite Gift: Plush Nucleotides!
John also got me a plush AT-AT and three nerd shirts from ThinkGeek.com. My favorite shirt I wore that day said, "Non-flammable? Challenge accepted."
Presents and Kevin loves the smiley balloons
Cake! Surprise balloons! And Kevin lights the candles with a blow torch
I found out at 6 pm that he and Victor had actually gone out to buy balloons! Kevin said my smiley balloons inspired him. They blew up a bunch for me and hid them under the desks, then flooded the kitchen with them when I took out the cake. It was hilarious! People were throwing them around. I even got speared in the head by my green smiley balloon, which I thought was very funny.
Kevin lit the cake's candles with a torch. And Kevin and Victor started singing happy birthday - and did a dance! Never had a birthday dance before - I laughed a lot about that. The cake was chocolate with cream cheese icing.
Slice and Pint: trying flavors of root beer
We ate loads of mozorella cheese ball appetizers and I tried three different flavors of root beer - a sip of dad's Virgil's, Jones and Natural Brew - all three tasted completely different. I still have about five more flavors left to try. The pizza was great! We got a specialty pepperoni that was very well done.
