A couple of days ago, March 9 to be exact, was Jacob's 4th Birthday!
This coming weekend, we will be staying at a local hotel to officially celebrate, but we wanted to do something special on Jacob's birthday. When we asked him what he wanted to do, he had two simple requests: Genki Sushi and Fun Factory.
I feel like such a dummy for not taking more pictures, but we were too busy enjoying him to take them. We first started celebrating his birthday at GG and Baachan's house the night before, where my mom made breaded shrimp, yakisoba, and deviled eggs for dinner.
My parents also got
|The hand is Jacob's... he's succeeded in licking the cake before candles.|
The next day, Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunty Jaz came over with breakfast. We also went shopping for a bunk bed that Grandma and Grandpa got for him (more on that in a future post.)
Then, we went to Genki Sushi for lunch. Genki Sushi, if you're not familiar with it, is a restaurant where the sushi and other dishes go around on a revolving conveyor belt. There are two on Maui, and we went to the one at Maui Mall. I would just like to document what he ate because I seriously think he ate more than I did: He ate 3 tuna rolls, 1 hot dog roll, and some spam. I know he's growing but 5 plates at Genki Sushi? Yikes. He's only 4 years old.
After that, we crossed the sidewalk and went to Fun Factory, which is an arcade/game center. It's the closest thing to legal gambling you can find on Maui but it's mostly for kids. Jacob got a bunch of tickets and cashed them in for some fun prizes, including a Despicable Me coloring book & markers.
Although it doesn't seem like much typed out, I think Jacob had a great time. As I mentioned earlier, this weekend we will be staying at a local hotel with really fun water slides. He'll definitely have fun there, so more on that soon.... Ugh, but it better not rain this weekend!!
Happy 4th Birthday, Jacob. Don't grow too fast. Mommy and Daddy love you very much.
