This has been the week of Summer festivals. This is fitting since it led up to SMS' birthday, the best day of all! (Ha, ha, this is a lie. It is the co-best day of all because my birthday should be included. This is a biased opinion, I know. It's ok if you think your birthday is the most important day! Birthdays are the best!).

Also…Friday was SMS' birthday! Subarashi, desu ne!?!? The celebration is spanning today and yesterday but we did celebrate his birthday on the actual day, which is always important. When we got home, we had a mini-cake with candles and birthday present time. SMS opened cards from me and his family and opened up his presents which included socks (I am so awesome!) and a new camera lens (which was really the awesome present). SMS was really happy with his birthday and today, we're having a slightly larger party on the beach with a BBQ picnic. I'm pretty excited and we're celebrating with a few local friends, although several happen to be out-of-town this weekend.
