On Michael’s birthday (for those of you who know, I am about 2 months late on this post…oops…for some reason the auto posting didn’t work) we had a pretty low key day. The boys and I made crepes and birthday cards for Michael while he slept in. They we took a walk while Michael sat and drank coffee and watched the news on TV (a rare occurrence). Later in the morning we had some things to do (pick up the car from the garage, paint G’s room, etc) and then invited a few friends over for homemade pizza for lunch. When we ran out of paint and everyone went home, we took the boys swimming in our community pool, then had a candlelit dinner out on our balcony (we had to wait till everyone had broken their fast though, it’s not cool to eat in the open during Ramadan!).
