This weekend was my beloved Mark Jacinto's 4th birthday. Wait, what? Yes, my little boy is becoming a little man. The passing of time and the appreciation for time itself is something that revolutionizes my life. Now, I can see how fast time goes by. Time is materialized on my children! I can see what four years look like and one and so forth. It's humbling but it also makes me want to squeeze every drop of joy I can get out of my life. It reminds me of the power of the now, of not leaving the best things in life for later.
Anyways back to the point, Mark Jacinto's 4th bday party was AWESOME! Weeks before the actual event he was clear of what he wanted. He wanted his aunt Taty, Emmet and chocolate cake. He would also mention this with a stern voice that would give away his Kropf stubbornness ha! We would count the weeks and days, tres semanas, dos semanas .. so this kid will calm down( he tends to get excited about everything!)
Aunt Taty came to visit us and everyone couldn't be more excited. Lil' Dominika even started saying Taty: Tuh- tee . I love their relationship.
We got a decadent chocolate cake from Café Madeleine and it was sooo good, a little too good;) Also, we decided to be cheesy and wear Lego Movie themed t-shirts since that was the party's theme^.^
We celebrated the event at Yerba Buena Bowling area with wonderful friends. Grandma and Grandpa Kropf watched the event through google hangout, and Marky will go and salute and talk to them every so often. He's such a considerate and loving human being already, love him so very much! A few shots below:
It was a beautiful evening full of love, laughter and celebration. Happy birthday to our little guy Mark Jacinto. Son, you are a shining light in my life. Thank you.
