Birthday Celebration


I had such a wonderful weekend. My nephew turned one! He was born on July 4th and now we have a wonderful reason to all get together for the 4th of July weekend. He was given what seemed like a hundred presents. Of course, he was more interested in the big bags and wrapping paper.

My sister is married to a man that was born in Nicaragua and they are trying to teach Kian (nephew) Spanish and English. I think it's so wonderful that he will grow up bilingual. With the Spanish theme in mind, four of us bought him the same present! haha. A leap frog toy that says items and phrases in English and Spanish. It was really funny because we kept giving him the wrapped toy and after the third one.... he looked at us like, "What the heck??" haha.

My sister decided to have the party at my father's house in Williamsburg, VA. We are all spread out around VA and Williamsburg is half way between Richmond and VA Beach. It made it easier for everyone to get there. When we go to dad's house he always wants to take us for a boat ride. It is ALWAYS a disaster. My poor father tries so hard to make the day nice but inevitably something always goes wrong. On this day, he had the pontoon boat in the water, cleaned up and ready to go. We got about 10 partygoers ready to go on the boat and headed down to the dock. About two miles down the Chickahominy river we noticed the the back of the boat was sinking!! Panic ensued and eventually we were able to make it back to the dock! After disembarking and getting the boat out of the water we realized that one of the pontoons was full of water! My dad was so disappointed, it was really sad. I guess some people just have no luck with these things?

  2. He's so cute! That's great that he will be learning 2 languages! My parents opted not to teach my sister and I their language and now at age 35, I'm trying to learn it! Ugh! Happy Birthday to your nephew or I should say Feliz Cumpleanos! Ha!
