This month is absolutely nuts but one of the high-points was my birthday. My oldest nephew, Antoine, has been talking about coming back out to visit from California for awhile and he recently texted me saying he was definitely coming this year in October. I was excited and left it at that. The Friday before my birthday weekend (August 9) I came home with the girls and Raul helped me with getting them out of the car and such. I was holding Z and I came in the house to see an iPhone pointing at me from around the corner. I had no idea whose hand it was and then my nephew jumped from around the corner and said "Surprise!". I could not and still cannot believe it! It was the best surprise and he recorded the whole thing. Raul and Antoine had been planning this since April!! Sneaky and I love surprises so I'm over the moon. :D
The rest of the weekend was full of hanging out at the zoo, taking pics, chatting it up, playing Ticket to Ride, eating our fill of homemade food and peach cobbler. So much love, it was a perfect birthday weekend.
