This is my 7th birthday, quite possibly my favorite. It really sticks out in my mind because I got a card from one of my grandmother's friends and it had a punch out crown. I thought that was the best!
My parties were very simple...Pin the tail on the Donkey, Hot Potato, Musical Chairs, cake and ice cream and then open presents. It seemed to be the same each year.
Another thing that was the same every year was where my mom got my birthday cake- Martino's Bakery in Burbank. It is still in business and I love to get their maple tea cakes!
This is my 10th birthday. This is the birthday when I received my 10 speed Free Spirit bike. It was white with blue and red stripes and it made me feel so grown up. My previous bike was pale pink with a banana seat, a plastic wicker basket on the front handle bars and a playing card clothes-pinned to the spokes. The 10 speed was definetly a more mature bike.
Later, I will post some pictures from my 40th birthday Parisien Soiree!
