Summer is a lot of things, break from school, vacationing with family, summer camp and fun with friends! Summer for our family is also birthday time for our girls with one born in July and the other in August.
Birthdays are a BIG deal for us. BIG in that we celebrate for all its worth (and by the way not just for our girls but our birthdays too)!
Our youngest will be turning six this month, how did that happen? She is excited for all her birthday entails including an overnight visit from the birthday fairy who leaves balloons in her room while she’s sleeping and at the kitchen table. Of course she’s excited for the gifts, the party and the time honoring her, but she is also very excited that it means we will spend time with her birth family.
In fact both her birth mother and her sister’s birth mother will be celebrating our girls birthday for a weekend together! We are all looking forward to next weekend when all of us will be together to celebrate and to bask in the girls and our family! Everyone is in countdown mode for the airport pick up on Thursday morning and then imminent arrival of the rest of our family on Saturday.
This is not the only time we are ALL together but it is a special time going back to when each of our girls were born and we were invited to be at the hospital. That was the time that our family really came together with all of us joining together as one unit.
So it is these birthdays we celebrate with all our heart and soul and our girls are the benefactors of all of us coming together!
and so with all that we know Birthday are for celebrating!
