The House Is Still Standing

Well, we definitely celebrated G's 4th birthday in a big way. As we used to say, we did it up! Here's the web album,and you can click in the bottom right corner to look at the "real" photos:

Gabriel is one lucky boy. Some of his highlights were the bounce house and sno-cone machine (for the day) from Uncle Jack and Aunt Jen, an air soccer game that Mommy and Daddy like to play with from Bun and Papa, Geotrax Old Rust and Tex from Bunnut and Papa Nick, Geotrax Knight and Sir John from Grandad and Grandma Gail, a transforming clock from Great Grandma and Great Grandpa, and his Geotrax Grand Central Station from Mommy and Daddy.
