Happy Belated 29th Birthday Danny!

Here are the pictures from the day after Danny's birthday. We spontaneously decided to go to 6 flags Magic Mountain for Danny's birthday without the kids (thanks to Andrew and Lizzy who babysat for 12 hours--we still owe you guys)! So we had to have Danny's birthday cake the next day. He requested a yellow cake with rainbow chip frosting and vanilla pudding and fruit in the middle. Sounds good right? Well, he set me up. Only after my cake totally crumbled on one side did he tell me, "Remember when my parents were gone for Julia's birthday and I made her cake and it totally fell apart? This is the kind of cake I made." Obviously it was sugary and delicious, but it wasn't very pretty.

I realize that it is one month and six days after Danny's birthday but better late than never right? I love Danny so much and I know that deep down he feels cheated for not having a birthday post. I was always planning on doing one, but got a little sidetracked. So here it …

Guess who can ride a big boy bike with no training wheels?

And guess who thinks he can!

To Read or Not?

I decided that I wanted to start reading more. Actual books, not blogs. So this morning I stayed in bed trying to finish the last twenty pages of a 200 page book I’ve been reading for the last 6 months (pathetic I know). Danny had been taking care of the boys while I was taking this little indulgence. So I thought. Gio came into my room trying to tell me something but I just kept on reading. I finished my book and came out to the living room. Feeling good about my accomplishment, however small it was. Zeke greeted me with this little surprise.


Lately Gio and Zeke have been getting along really well. Every time I leave the room it seems like Gio has Zeke laughing hysterically or the other way around. In the bathtub all Gio has to do is splash and Zeke thinks it is hilarious. Tonight Gio was hiding under Zekey's high chair and Zeke would look down and say "boo" and Gio would just start rolling with laughter. It is so fun to see Zekey become a big boy and a good friend to Gio.
