Last week was Zaino’s birthday! Happy 26th Birthday Zaino!
Last year we were at our favorite restaurant….Ted Montana’s. We were sitting in our usual spot–at the bar right by the kitchen (so we can see everything being cooked!). I said to my dad, “I feel like I am 25!” His response, “I feel like I am 25 too!” Of course we both started laughing! So, this year on our drive to Ted Montana’s for his birthday dinner I asked him, “Dad are you still 25?” “No of course not! I am one year older! I am 26!” I know you can imagine what happened next. Yes more laughing.
On a serious note, (I know these don’t come along often when it comes to Zaino) I really love how young and good spirited my dad is. When people say, “I am 57 years young.” I now know what they mean! My dad is so young at heart and really living life to the fullest. He is such a role model for me; to not take life for granted and to appreciate the little things in life.
Anyway, his birthday was a particularly fun night and full of Zaino gems!
On our way to Ted Montana’s I asked him if he knew what he was going to get. He said, “I don’t know! I haven’t been there in a while. They changed their menu.” Shocked, I asked, “Really?” Zaino’s response, “How am I supposed to know!” WHAT?!?!?!
One of the funniest things that happened was when I asked my brother’s girlfriend, Amanda, to take a picture of Zaino and I. We were laughing and goofing around, when we should have been posing for the picture. Little did we know Amanda was taking our pictures. Here is what that looked like!
