So, when I asked my daughter what she wanted as food for her birthday party, (which we celebrated a week earlier so she could spend it with her friends since she is going to winter camp on that weekend) she said we wanted a sushi, fried wantons and fried rice. Well I was kinda shock because I thought she was going to say hot dogs, pizza, or nuggets and fries but, instead I got and grown-ups menu. I guess she is really growing up and it kinda makes me sad to see my baby getting all big.
I hope you guys enjoy it, as much as all the kids at the party did, they loved it!!
