Rich went away to California/Nevada, with his parents and grandma, for five days a couple weeks ago to do something special....welcome his brother from Afghanistan! I think it was probably the most memorable birthday he'll have in a while...especially since his brother came home ON his birthday!
While he was away, the kids and I wanted to show him he were thinking of him...
...and make sure he didn't forget what we looked like ;-)
We're not used to Rich being away on his birthday, but we tried to make it special from our end too. So, besides texting him the last couple pictures, we had a Chocolate Eclair Cake, pizza, a banner and gifts waiting for him when he came home. The kids gifts were so cute! They made him games and activities for him to do with them. One was a treasure hunt and they had a blast spending some much missed time with Daddy :-)
