Today was a wonderful day! I am happy! As all of my birthdays have for the past 5 years, it started out with Dax "taking" me to breakfast at this nice spot overlooking the ocean. I love our birthday dates! He is such a doll baby to me! Actually, it started out earlier than that with a birthday song montage by Andy (the first song was "you look like a monkey and you smell like one too" if that tells you a little something about the mood and quality). It made me happy, though. I like being married to him. After breakfast, I spent the morning at the beach playing in the ocean with my kids and all of my nieces and nephews. It was SO MUCH FUN! Maybe the most fun I've had here this year! Then we headed to the pool. I think my next highlight was watching my kids with their cousins!!! Tiki was in heaven playing with little Samuel. . .Tiki is a natural care giver and protector and I love that. Gabby had maybe the best day of her life. She was in her element playing with LilyAnne and Hayden. And it was fun to watch Maggie be the big cousin and see how all of the younger ones adore her. Andy was Super Uncle for a while and I loved watching the kids play with him!!! Today was a happy beautiful day. Tonight will be fun, too. . .but more on that after it happens!
