1980 Empire Strikes Back Birthday Party

This photo is wonderful in so many ways. Firstly it is at a McDonald’s, which was a dream birthday destination in 1980 (still is for me today). Secondly it is Empire Strikes Back themed! Look at the Boba Fett cake! Look at the napkins! This kid, Aaron, was so lucky. Absolutely amazing.

    A boy who loves Boba Fett and is cool enough to have girls at his party? That is one smooth dude.
