Riis Turns 3, Andrea Turns 1

The Crazy Ones
Birthday Party Crowd

Yesterday our friends Andrew and Juvel invite a bunch of us to go up to Tamsui to celebrate their daughters' birthdays. Fortunately for them the kids were born close together so both girls get to celebrate together. Riis, turning 3, was very excited and enjoyed receiving all the gifts. I think her favorite on was the one arm giraffe that she got to ride. Andrea received the same gift but Riis pretty much commandeered both.

Riis also, to the delight of her parents, received a recorder. So she was stomping around in her party dress, sunglasses and birthday hat blowing on the recorder like a rock star. It was great and she enjoyed all the attention.

As we were celebrating Andrea and Riis's birthday, we were also celebrating Phoebe's birthday too. Phoebe is one of the members of the Worship Team at Grace Baptist Church. She wouldn't tell us how old she was but she had a great time too

Andrea was pretty much a passive observer with regard to all the events that were going on around her. She seemed to enjoy the people but being only 1 was a little restless. She was fun too and enjoyed getting passed around from one guest to another.

One of the big highlights for Riis was her chocolate birthday cake. It was an awesome cake. We didn't really see her eat anything else but, being the birthday girl, she was allowed the extravagence.

The food that was put out was also delicious. I believe most of the cooking was done by Juvel but the boys (Andrew and Josh) did pitch in and make the salsa sauce. I never tried it so cannot tell you if it was good or not. All the food I did eat was delicious and went down well.

After the festivities, blowing out candles, eating lunch and then dinner, and riding the giraffe it was time for the adults to settle down and have some laughs and a few drinks.

I think in the end a great time was had by all and at 9:00pm we decided to call it quits. A couple of us went down to the waterfront in Tamsui, got some take out Starbucks and enjoyed the nightview of Bali. After that it was hometime, especially after the excitement of the day. Big thanks to Juvel, Andrew, Riis and Andrew for having us over. It was a great time.
