Happy First Birthday, Nathan!
We celebrated Nathan's first birthday a few days early, then we stuck the leftover cake in the freezer and headed to Singapore. The plan was to have a second celebration on the actual day, but that went the way of most good intentions. The boys and I spent part of Nathan's birthday in the guest house lounge because we were locked out of our room. Three hours later Daniel finished his meeting and came back with the keys. That evening we dragged two tired boys to McDonald's where they took turns screaming and wriggling to get out of their seats. Nathan did pull it together long enough to enjoy some birthday ice cream. Needless to say, we don't have many pictures for posterity, though we are collecting quite a list of birthday misadventures. Nathan's first birthday will rank up there with the one Daniel spent taking the GRE or the birthday I spent stuck in a flood in Jakarta. Ah well, these things do make the day memorable.
