Isaac’s main present was a BIKE with training wheels. Thanks, Amber, for Ben’s old one. Isaac loves it! I made a Thomas cake, and instead of having to say goodbye to Dad, we got to say hello to Grandma and Pa at the airport!
Eloise’s first birthday started early as we zipped out the door for breakfast on the ship before the big departure. She got lots of sympathy for the un-present of waving Dad off, but in exchange she got to be on the front page of the newspaper. So that’s worth something.
She came home to balloons and presents, and we celebrated our sweet one-year-old Belloise with a visit to the aquarium. A very memorable day.
