We spent the weekend celebrating a birthday so that today’s surprise would be especially unexpected. Jonathan and Alexis stumbled down the stairs in their school uniforms, assembled at the breakfast counter and looked up at me in complete disbelief when I broke from routine and served them chocolate cupcakes with icing and sprinkles. As they were disappearing cupcakes, Daddy pulled out swimsuits and tickets to Water Country USA and announced nobody would be going to work or to school today! Instead, we went to Williamsburg to continue our celebration of the gift of 7 years of Alexis.
Later, after dinner, still eating cake and icing and sprinkles, Alexi described her day at the “Ocean with Chlorine” (wave pool) to Uncle Jeff on the phone.
