Andrew turned FIVE years old on Thursday (the 24th). Celebrating his birthday at the beach was just wonderful for him. He was so excited and is still talking about how he's "a whole hand" now, and "so much bigger than Hannah." We spent the day at the Aquarium here, then went to lunch at Sticky Fingers (yum!). Thursday night (after naps, of course), we grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and enjoyed his birthday cake (a cookies & cream ice cream cake from Wally World). Side note: I think I have gained back all the weight I had lost before coming here. Jillian stayed in the suitcase the entire time. I have been a bad girl and I have a feeling Jillian will not be happy with me. I'm scared to get the DVD out again.
For now, I am enjoying the peace and quiet (Chris and kids are napping, and both of his brothers have headed back to their respective homes) and looking forward to a quiet evening of dinner, movies, and getting packed to head home tomorrow. Its been fun, but home is waiting.
