My Son's Birthday/息子の誕生日

This evening, my family went to a local Italian restaurant called SPiGA to celebrate my son's birthday. We ordered four dishes and shared them.

My son ordered a hamburger with mushrooms:

This looks like it was a really fun meal for your family! Happy birthday to your son, and I'm glad you were all able to celebrate together.

YSC: Thanks! As I said in the post, I was the one that was given the cakes in the last photo the day before my son's birthday (by a neighbor as a token of gratitude for the word-processing work I had done for him).
