Because I was shot from a late night and had the start to a bad headache, I decided against taking the kids to Exploration Place. Diego would never know the difference because I hadn't mentioned it to him.
Jesse, fortunately came to the rescue and took the morning off so he could take them instead, and so I could rest for a while when Cruz went down for a nap.
Wendy sent two of these monstrosities home with the kids on the fourth. I told them they could finally have them for his birthday at lunch.
We had Chipotle for dinner and cake afterwards. Diego loves having people sing the Birthday Song to him... no hiding under the table in embarrassment for this kid! What? you don't have family members who quite literally crawl under the table at the sound of the birthday song?
What a special day for a special boy! Diego, how I love your smiles, hugs, besos, "questions" at bed time that end up being just really long statements to stall going to bed, laugh, passion for sharing Jesus with others, and determination! I love you!
