There was a life-sized image of the Cat In The Hat attached to the walls, along with other characters from Dr. Seuss’ world. The cake was, well, scroll down and have a look. Talk about accuracy! From the tags on the cupcakes, to the red and turquoise that surrounded everyone, it was a party made for the Cindy Lous and Thing 1 and Thing 2 in all of us.
The best part? Little 1-year old Charles running about. I’m not sure if he’d just learned to walk, but he looked like he was having the time of his life just weaving through the tables and chairs, leading his grandparents up and down the staircase, letting loose on the grass without a care in the world. I was ecstatic for the little guy but oh my, the jealousy I felt as well. Life as a one-year old – I miss that and seeing Charles’ happy face reminded me to always look back on those simple times, if even for a short reverie.
