James turned 5 earlier this week, which was celebrated with his parents and Grace during his first trip to Disneyland and the adjacent California Adventure. Taking after his father, he liked the Pirates of the Caribbean but unlike his grandmother, father, mother and sister, he may be lacking the coaster gene. Splash Mountain was not a hit.
Today the family gathered to celebrate his birthday which was all about Star Wars. As his father says, “He’s taken to the Dark Side,” so it wore his Kylo Ren costume the entire time. Pop Pop and Annette gave him a mask that actually made sounds – very cool.
The menu was one of his favorites – spaghetti and meat sauce. And the highlight, pre usual, was the birthday cake..
