Birthday #26

gwenbirthday 006

We said goodbye to my aunt yesterday, it was hard for me to see her go. It was a complete whirlwind of a week but we had a lot of fun and did so much. Henry's schedule is shot and I'm still in that post-guest funk where you feel like you have to catch up on the million things you let go. But we have very few friends here and no family so an excuse to stray from the norm felt really good. These pictures are from my birthday, which was a super awesome day (duh).

this pirate was fascinating and scary to henry. as long as it didn't talk he was into it.

All day Henry was "hiding" and waiting for us to say "Henrrrry, where are youuuu?" He figured out how to close himself in the closet at the hotel and kept running out, screaming and laughing.

We just napped him when we could, wherever we could. Here he is sleeping on a restaurant seat!

Watching my boys play airplane at dusk and dance to the band caught my emotions off guard and made me all teary. I am so incredibly lucky to have these two and watching Henry grow into a smart and funny little boy is the best present I could ever ask for.
