Vinny turned 13 today!! And how did he spend his entire day? Doing what he loves most- performing!
This was show weekend for Shrek. He actually had a very small part in this show- he was a guard and I think only had one line. And while he was disappointed when the cast list came out, he never complained and had a blast in the show. Although it was a mostly non speaking part, his antics in the background cracked me up-- Vinny is a comedic natural on stage! Talk about making the most of the role he got!
As always, he was supported by his brothers.
And of course Grandma Liz and Grandpa Dave and Aunt Gina.
After the show we went to Maggiano's for dinner with family,
then home to open presents! He finally got a guitar amp which he has been wanting. And then he went straight to bed, too exhausted for his homemade ice cream cake (or maybe he is getting sick-- after a week of tech (rehearsals) and weekend of shows it wouldn't be the first time).
Vinny, you are a complete joy. I can not think of a better way to celebrate your birth then by watching you shine on stage! I can not wait to see what you have in store for life-- I know it is going to be amazing!
