From Daddy: The Beanie Birthday Party at My Gym actually occurred on the day before Robert’s actual birthday. Robert’s actual birthday was low-key.

The morning was fun and centered around family. However, his Southern California relatives departed in stages in the morning. As relatives were leaving, he grew increasing sensitive to their departures and he was a little weird during good-byes.
Mommy’s plan was to walk (which Robert loves to do) down to Irving Street (which Robert loves also) to get pizza (which Robert loves to eat) for dinner with any relative that was still here. Unfortunately, no one stayed, but Robert didn’t mind because the pizza, of course, was Irving Pizza. Starting on this day, however, Robert decided to call the restaurant “Pizza Planet.” So cute and imaginative!

Why is walking toward the back of Pizza Planet? So that he can jump toward the door!, July 31, 2011, 5:10 p.m.

Then we walked to get some dessert!

Afterward, Robert “flew home” like Buzz Lightyear, with his “wings” gently swaying right and left.

Though we stopped off to drum along the way…
