Anthony Turns Five, Part II

More pictures from Anthony's birthday the other day.

We had a couple of those pull-the-string-and-streamers-pop-out party favors....

Noisy!

Yet just 0.69 seconds later....

Fun!

A present from Grandma and Grandpa had him looking for assistance...

“Scissors, Please”

Inside was an “age 8+” radio-controlled car that I'm sure we'll see more of in a later post, and a book that got an immediate and thorough inspection...

“Cuuuuuute”

Fumie's mom made a wonderful spread for dinner. Anthony and Fumie's brother are playing with Anthony's new train in the background of the next shot....

Tasty Dinner

The foreground bowl is rice topped with egg (the yellow stuff), cucumber, ikura salmon roe (orange orbs), thinly-sliced octopus, and dried, shredded seaweed.

To the near left is sesame cucumber, Anthony's current favorite.

To the right are kabobs with wieners, quail eggs, cucumber, chikuwa, and cheese.

The covered casserole dish had roast beef that was so incredibly tender that it had the consistency of butter. Warm butter.

Wrapped in foil in the rear left are broiled fish.

It was all very, very yummy.

Anthony Starts with a Kabob

It was a matter of some fun trying to guess what the kabobs were stuck into, so Anthony enjoyed finally being able take the tinfoil off....

Unwrapping
(but not a present this time)

It turns out that my guess of a kaki (Japanese Persimmon) was correct. I felt no small satisfaction having guessed it correctly when Fumie and her brother, who grew up eating kaki, weren't able to.


One comment so far...

“Scissors, please”
I’ve seen the way his Grandma wraps things. In addition to the scissors, I hope you also provided the necessary acetylene torch and Jaws of Life required to open his package!

Oh, dinner looked yummy!
