Happy Easter Sunday, everyone! It was a busy Sunday for us here in Nevada, TX. This morning, I hurriedly scattered the Easter eggs I prepared last night in the yard for my darling daughter to hunt when she woke up. I also hid some of them around the house for her to find. K found them all in no time. 🙂
K wanted to do the egg hunt before we headed to her friend’s birthday party, which was held at the Rainforest Cafe at Grapevine Mills Mall. Of course, we attended the Easter Sunday service first.
The birthday celebrant chose the Rainforest to hold her birthday lunch party because it was also her favorite restaurant. We actually visited the restaurant a few times with her during planned weekend getaways with the girls. They enjoyed the rainforest ambiance as well as the selection of food in the menu. One of the most popular was the “volcano”. It’s a type of cake in the dessert menu. And if it’s ordered for the birthday celebrant, the waiter or server will come to serve the cake yelling “Volcano!”. Then the servers will sing a birthday song for the celebrant. It’s fun!
After a big meal at the Rainforest Cafe, we accompanied the girls to do some shopping in the mall. We headed home a couple of hours after.
It was a beautiful Sunday even though it was raining all day. We got to see friends and family at my friend’s house for her daughter’s 7th birthday party. The kids had a great time playing indoors.
There were lots of delicious food mostly cooked by my friend R. This beautiful floral birthday cake was baked by a friend, too. We were joking that it’s too beautiful to eat. My friend L, who baked this pretty cake, is taking orders but in and around Dallas area only.
The grownups, as well as the young ones, had a great time catching up and played Bingo for about a couple of hours. It was a simple yet a very fun birthday celebration for Ari.
