Happy Birthday to Adam!

I was totally going to type something super sappy to try to embarrass you but I decided against it for several reasons:
you don't embarrass easilyI would probably be the one to get embarrassed you would call and tell me I'm a nerdI wouldn't have been able to do a bullet postmy blog is public and I wouldn't want it to end up on the front page of Xanga"sappy" really just isn't my thing"sappy" really just isn't YOUR thing
sap is strictly for maple syrupSo hopefully you aren't disappointed! Enjoy Texas..and eat some good, authentic Mexican food for your birthday ole!

PS: You already know that the monkey and I have a surprise for you when you get home but Eli insisted on giving you a happy birthday message now:

Happy Birthday to my sister!


Estas son las mañanitas, que cantaba el Rey David.
Hoy por ser día de tu santo, te las cantamos a ti. Despierta mi bien despiertam mira que ya amaneció.
Ya los pajaritos cantan.La luna ya se metió Que linda está la mañana en que vengo a saludarte.
Venimos todos con gusto y placer a felicitarte. Ya viene amaneciendo.Ya la luz del día nos dio.

Levántate de mañana.Mira que ya amaneció.

Tienes una buena dia, chica!
Tu eres muy loco!
Y tu eres muy bonita!

El burro sabe mas que tu!

Que te pasa, calabasa?
Nada, nada, limonada!

Le crocodile a mangé le bébé!

The Brewers Racing Sausages were in it, but I didn't have the camera on me until they were racing down the street...

That picture is especially for you, Dad!

My Aunt Ellen...

my cousin Jim...

Street sweeper...end of parade!
There were WAY more pictures but only some of them uploaded correctly.
On the way home, the monkey was very tired...the parade was 2 hours long, after all!

He fell asleep holding a stick he found at the parade!

After all that, we decided to grill out:

and Eli and Daddy read books:

Adam decided to "help" me change Elijah's poopy diaper...he gave him the pants sag:

After dinner, Elijah needed a bath to get the ketchup, BBQ sauce and other food out of his hair:
