I am always thankful for August.
It's my cue for the start of birthday season.
All of my babies had birth dates close to a family member. It is funny how close they were to being born on the same day as their aunt or grandmother, and so it makes it so easy to remember all the other birthdays too.
Jakey turned 5 last week. Having been relegated to sharing birthdays with his older brother, we'd decided to throw him a party this year.
A bunch of his friends and cousins came by to celebrate at Go Go Bambini. My lil fella was so thrilled being the birthday boy that he was grinning like a Cheshire cat all day.
Then, we celebrated Dad's birthday a week later (although his birthday was earlier than the boy's. =)
A milestone of measures. It was the turning of a decade.
Turns out the restaurant that we booked had only another table that night. So it was almost like private dining with generous servings to boot! I think we'd packed half of the food back home. Plus, the kids had heaps of space to run. Score!
Happy birthday to two of my favorite people in the whole wide world. =)
