It’s Ruby’s elder birthday, an occasion which naturally calls for a party! Lilah is making her a Sugar Free Carob Coconut Cake – that sounds awful (maybe apart from the coconut), but I’m curious.
Erica is the first guest to arrive, and she goes straight to her mom to congratulate her.
And since Erica is here, that means Daniel can’t be far…
Daniel: “Hi Isaac, I missed you. I love watching you sleep. You look so peaceful…”
Err, moving on…
Juanita arrives next, shortly followed by the twins and their… business associates.
And last but not least, Cassiel and Baato make an entrance.
Peter: “Hey cousin Cassiel! Is this your new boyfriend?”
Cassiel: “He’s not my boyfriend, he’s my slave.”
Peter: “Uh, no need to involve me in whatever roleplay you two have going on! Um, would you like to borrow one of my shirts Baato?”
Tony: “If I didn’t know better, I’d swear this is your young adult birthday! I don’t look a day older from that teen spin!”
Putting the moves on Ruby, Tony? (I think it might be working…)
Meanwhile, Vincent seems to be sticking to Gretchen. I wonder if these two are just friends…
Peter: “So, Baato, are you sure I can’t interest you in a top?”
Lilah: “I think it’s great that you feel comfortable walking around topless and shoeless! It’s like ditching the unnecessary, connecting with the nature and feeling its vibrations fully…”
Juanita: “Absolutely! I think you look great!”
Cassiel: “Hands off, mother! Don’t you dare flirt with him! He’s mine!”
Peter: “Relax Cassiel, nobody’s trying to steal your boyfriend!”
Cassiel: “My slave!”
Peter: “Uh, whatever… why don’t you try some yoga out on the deck? It always calms me.”
Also… Ruby! Are you checking out Tony? Your husband is right there!
Cassiel gives it a go.
Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that it’s worked too well.
Cassiel: “Stop looking at my mother Baato! I forbid you to speak to her.”
Baato: “Yes, creator.”
Charlotte: “Oh the heat!”
Erica and Daniel seem completely oblivious of the drama around them. Also, the cake doesn’t look too bad!
It’s time for the big twirl!
I don’t think any of my birthday parties have seen this much confetti thrown at once!
Welcome to elderhood Ruby! You’re still cute!
Juanita: “Join the old lady club! It’s not all that bad, really. For starters, I’m in it!”
Meanwhile, Isaac bonds with his first born grandson.
Skylar: “Oh, I know my dad is a bit cuckoo. Don’t worry, I take good care of him.”
It’s a lot later in the night by the time everyone leaves. Isaac and Ruby finally have some time on their own.
Ruby: “There may have been attractive young men at the party, but you’re still the most handsome of them all!”
Sorry, Meatballs. Isaac and Ruby are still going strong.
