Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes organized a birthday lunch for Suri on April 18th at the Cruise compound in Los Angeles, where the entire clan dined on pizza and cupcakes from Sprinkles bakery in Beverly Hills.
“Suri is walking and talking,” says a source close to the family, who adds that dragonfly and butterfly piñatas were part of the entertainment.
Katie told People magazine recently that Suri, “loves just being outside right now,” and accordingly received a gym set for the backyard, according to the source, along with a stack of books, balls and dolls.
“Tom and Suri kicked the ball around the lawn during the party,” adds the source.
Katie’s mom Kathy, 60, flew to California for the occasion, as did a sister and nephew of Tom, according to the source. On April 17th, both grandmothers – Kathy Holmes and Mary Lee Mapother South, 70 – were treated to dinner at an Italian restaurant.
Just days earlier Katie, 28, was in Shreveport, La., where she is filming Mad Money with Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton – and the day after the birthday bash, she and Tom, 44, flew to New York City for Cruise’s 9/11 Detox Fund-Raiser.
By the end of Wednesday’s party, “Tom, Katie and Suri were wearing chocolate.”
Sounds like fun!
