Valentine's Day Birthday

I'm not sure if Simone is lucky or unlucky to have her birthday on Valentine's day. To us Valentine's Day isn't a big deal, but in saying that I can't complain about coming home to a lovely surprise of red tulips and chocolates, from Aaron this afternoon :)

I couldn't let her birthday pass without doing something, so we decided to do a class at the gym together, and then headed to the park with the kids.  Everyone at the gym kept mentioning Valentine's Day, so I had to let them know it was also Simone's birthday.  Tammy and her girls joined us as well.

Another surprise of the day was I actually made some cupcakes (no - not packet mix!) to take the park - with dinosaur sprinkles and all.  I was looking for something girly for the top, but I'm afraid there isn't any girly sprinkles in our cupboard, so dinosaurs it was.

 Simone humored me and pretended to blow out her candle, that couldn't be lit because of the breeze.

It was a beautiful afternoon and the kids had a great time playing together.

Jay had a little tear when Tammy and I were talking to him about what it's like being the oldest cousin, and having lots of little cousins and no one around his age.  I reminded him that it seems like he's on his own with lots of little ones around when we get together with the cousins, as Noah is the closest to his age.

He looked at Noah and said 'if Noah wasn't disabled he would probably be my best mate'.  Jay loves Noah, but I think he's finding it harder as he gets older as he thinks about how things could be different.   He's a great brother to all the boys, and especially to Noah.

Happy birthday Simone! Glad we could catch up and enjoy the last days of summer before the kids go back to school.
