Gabriel also celebrated a birthday while on our vacation. Lillian's was on the day we left for vacation. Gabriel's was the day we returned home. Both of them, unfortunately, had birthdays that were primarily spent in the car.
Thankfully, though, we had a big birthday bash while at our family reunion...celebrating Lillian's, Gabriel's, and my niece's birthday. There were presents, three(!) cakes, and lots of fun. Here, Gabriel is sporting the fun sunglasses that Grandma Patty found for him. Aren't they cool?
Gabriel received a replacement pair of yellow rain boots from us. Many of you may know about his rain boot obsession. It started because he could put them on by himself. Then, they became his favorite shoes in the whole world...worthy of wearing with shorts, church clothes, and his bathing suit! He also received a cowboy guitar, Thomas stuff, dinosaur eggs, and goggles to wear when he swims.
What can I say about Gabriel? My friend Karen summed it up when she asked how I can get anything done with him around. It's too easy to just listen to him talk and crack up all the time. And that is so true. He is such a charming, witty little guy. He keeps everyone in the family laughing. What a great quality! So, happy birthday, Big Boy! Here's to another year of tickling our funny bones!
