Happy Birthday, Caleb!
This post is dated October 10th on the blog, but it is already the morning of October 11th in Vietnam. Caleb is three today! He woke up around six this morning ready for the festivities and had opened the last of his presents by seven. Now he is playing with his new assortment of vehicles and toys and watching a Bob the Builder video. A few days ago I asked him what he wanted for his birthday breakfast. He didn't seem to have any ideas so I made a few suggestions (mostly in an attempt to avoid having M&Ms and ice cream on the menu). When I mentioned zucchini bread he said,"Ya, ya, ya, zucchini bread! That's a good plan." It may have been a good plan, but the piece of zucchini bread is sitting untouched next to his morning milk. I guess that's to be expected with all the excitement.
We were going to take Caleb to the swimming pool this morning but both he and Nathan have been running low fevers and seem to be coming down with a cough. It isn't slowing them down at all, but I'm not sure sharing our germs with a pool full of other kids is the best idea. Instead, some of our friends are coming by to have lunch and cake. They didn't seem worried by the germ swapping potential and are bringing their kids. Caleb will be sharing his Cars birthday with a pack of little girls. We'll see how that goes.
I should probably go finish cutting up the vegetables for lunch. I will post pictures of the big party later today.
