We got to the party way before my grandfather (it was a surprise party) so we could help set up.
While we waited for him to arrive, the kids played baseball. It was very fun to see them playing because the equipment was just so large for their tiny frames. I took some time to try and capture some of that fun childhood innocence.
Here is the, admittedly lo-fi, recording my brother made of the Punto Cubano. Be forewarned if you know Spanish, there are some dirty jokes here so determine whether or not your kids or bosses should hear this.
I was so happy that I attended this party. I got to catch up with family members I hadn’t spoken with in ages. I got tons of photos of my family, especially my grandfather. And it was great to be there to see my grandfather’s face when he realized the party was for him. I think that moment will be with me for a long time.
