Roshawn’s 14th Birthday!

Posted by

We celebrated Roshawn’s 14th Birthday on April 13th! What a blast we had! Rahesha and I gathered up Roshawn, his friends and brother and traveled to the Laser Dome in Lancaster, PA.  After 4 major battles in the dark confines of the Laser Dome building, I came out as the Master of our Party.  I had the most kills, and hits on the enemy base out of everyone in Roshawn’s party, plus I was ranked in the top 5 out of 40 other participants.  My days of playing army as a kid finally paid off, but enough about me!

After the Laser Dome, Roshawn and his buddies had a sleep over and played video games until the wee hours of the morning.

Now the funniest part of the entire b-day was the cake I bought.  When I went to the Giant, I ordered the largest cake that was visible in the display. I told the baker to “give me the largest cake,” as I pointed to the cake in the display. He asked me if I wanted a full sheet or half a sheet.  I once again pointed to the cake and said give me the largest, the full sheet. The cake that I pointed to cost $19.99, and it was to feed about 20 people. When I returned to the Giant the next day, the brought out this massive cake that was 18 inches wide and about 24 inches long. I said “That’s not my cake,” and they said “Yes it is, you ordered the full sheet.” I then told them that the cake I ordered was there in the display, and they said that was a half a sheet.  I then told them that this monstrosity they called a cake was not in the display at all, so how was I supposed to know a full sheet was bigger than the cake in the display. Not only was the cake humongous, but it cost $35 and fed 40-60 people. To make a long story short, I convinced them to sell me the cake for $19.99, but then I had to decide what to do with the cake because it wasn’t going to fit in my fridge.  Needless to say, everyone went home with huge chunks of cake!




  1. Hummm. Nobody could ever say that you don’t blow your own horn (smile), and nobody could ever say that you don’t know how to show your family a good time.

    I love that music.

    Hugs to you and your family.


  2. Ron,

    The opening song on your site is awesome. It made people come into my room when I was reading your newest entry.

    Now for the cake. You are suffering from the “Jay Yohe” curse. I’m sorry, but friends in my life start experiencing little strange occurrences. Things get stranger and stranger until you end smack dab in the middle of “Surreal-Ville”. Get used to it friend.

    Now why didn’t you send some of that cake my way?

    Take care…
