More birthdays in July...
For some reason, July is the biggest birthday month on both sides of the family. On the Choate side, six special people have rubies as their birthstone, so, a few days ago, we drove over to celebrate together.
We had such a great time playing in the water to beat the heat, eating the Italian Cream Cake that Sarah made, playing lots and lots of Wii amongst the cousins,
and trying to figure out how to put together the transformers that Aaron gave his little nephew. The vintage toys were from Aaron's personal stash of childhood toys, and those little robots kept us busy at the table long after we finished our delicious birthday cake and ice cream.
Getting this crew together is a rare treat - cousins from Arkansas, Japan, and the Solomon Islands don't get to hang out together very often!
