A Random Five post  — Youngest Granddaughter Birthday
One: We had 11:00 AM tickets to the children's play, We're Going on a Bear Hunt, at the Lyric Theatre, London. This was for KP's birthday. KP turned four on the 16th of July. Most parents are familiar with this story.
The book (review), We're Going on a Bear Hunt, was about a Dad, Mother, Daughter, Son, and their Dog going on a bear hunt. One difference was that the daughter was missing in the play. She may have been sick or overslept.
sTwo: After the play, in the afternoon, we stopped at the toy store. KP played with a lot of toys but she really didn't ask for anything.
Mrs. Jim bought her an electronic toy cash register. All little girls need a cash register with play money, some grocery items to sell, and a credit card that swipes. Lauren now has hers.
Three: In the evening we had pizza at the local Pizza Express Restaurant. KP's favorite is Margarita with cheese and tomato sauce.
This was on the children's menu and came with a drink (milk for KP), a coloring booklet with a box of borrowed colors, and a cake. The cake went into a nice take home box.
Four: The evening was topped off with birthday cupcakes at home. KP always likes the cake and blowing out of candles part of birthday celebrations. The cakes were very good also, Karen brought them home with her after her work. I had red chocolate velvet.
Five: Finally after two weeks in town I had fish and chips. Above you see an one piece of fried haddock order with about a third of an order of chips and a third order of mushy peas.Very traditional British.
We ate at the Golden Hind seafood restaurant. Karen had our reservation for 6:45. For appetizers we had calamari or fish cakes to share. I had a fish cake, but I ate half of it before I remembered to take a picture.
We took the long way home to go through Selfridge's (history link) on our way to the bus stop. KP was treated to a chocolate yogurt dish on the way through the store.
Today--the 19th (I wrote this last night) is Karen's birthday. We will go out to eat real fancy for it after her work. I'll tell you more about that later.
It is also Katrin's birthday. She is 13 years old today (link) or scroll above if you are seeing this on just plain Jim's Little Blog (link).

Great shot of the ladies in the balcony.
I am not a big fish eater but the fish and chips look good. Mushy peas...not so much and I like peas.
Well what a month for you with all those birthdays to celebrate. Thank for sharing this, now I have discovered a play I never heard about before and your ladies are all so alike and beautiful. I've been in London, but never had the chance to attempt a theatre show, the stay was too brief and after a day of work we were too tired to think about getting out. But I wish I will one day, London is so close now.
