We had a birthday party, complete with cake (this is Matthew trying out his new camera):
We stayed up late doing this:
and playing with these:
During the day, Samuel in particular had a blast with Daisy. He even thanked her for the birthday presents mom and dad gave him. Oh, and tried to help her clean herself with his tongue, but thankfully, I saw what was about to happen and intervened in time.
The boys had a blast swimming, and daddy had fun blasting them with the water gun.
Then, on Sunday, daddy had to head home. Many tears and sadness followed, but I think Brad was fine by the time he hit Waco (ha ha). No, seriously, the boys were very sad when he had to leave but probably nobody felt it more than I did. I just don’t feel like a whole person without him around. As I write this, we are only 24 hours away from being back home and I’m ready. But I’m getting ahead of myself. There is still more fun about which to post…stay tuned!
