It was Aidan’s Bar Mitzvah day and the celebration began with the solemn service at Temple Beth David in Westwood MA. Family and friends from all over were in attendance to join Aidan as he made his Bar Mitzvah.
But then it was party time! All the guests and many more of Aidan’s school and family friends joined him for the reception and celebration at Raffaels in Walpole MA.
The first order of business was the cake and candle lighting – then the traditional “ride in the chair in the air” – and Aidan was up to all of his duties!
The theme was basketball and Aidan was not a bit shy in getting all of his friends involved in the fun.
I have to admit – this was a great party!
When playing the game of basketball is more than a passion, and when your birthday is just around the corner … and when pizza is involved .. well that’s a party just waiting to happen !
It was time to celebrate Aidan’s birthday so I was asked to come by the house and capture the day as it unfolded. But this was like two or three surprises rolled into one.
First – Aidan was told that having a private session with me was the surprise. Now Aidan’s friends were going to arrive at noon – so a few minutes before I took him to the back of his house to get some shots there… little did he know that I was just trying to keep him away while his friends arrived. So when we went around to the front of the house again it was time for the big Surprise number 2 !
I guess surprise number 3 was that his Sisters didn’t attend! HA!
