his tough guy pose
Brandon had planned to take the whole family floating on the Guadalupe to celebrate G's bday. But there was a rare San Antonio torrential downpour. He played in the rain and I brought him in to open his presents.
He was luke warm about the educational gifts I bought him. He was sweet about it but I felt bad for him -what with getting rained out of our float and then getting some lame phonics presents. So Caroline (Adam's girlfriend) and I took Gabriel to Target. On our way, I let him choose anywhere to eat lunch. He picked Wendy's and had a hamburger with extra pickles, fries and a chocolate milk. Once at Target, we walked up and down every toy aisle and I let him pick out whatever he wanted.
Is it any surprise that he picked all cars? Another track, a car wash play set and a pack of hot wheels. I have never seen a child soooooo crazy about cars. I hope he grows up to be an awesome mechanic. How cool would that be to have a mechanic in the family?
Nana had a little family dinner / party for his bday. Stephanie and her family happen to be in town so it worked out great. Yesterday I told Gabriel, "We are going to Nana's house for dinner on your birthday and your favorite person will be there." He shouted with great fervor , "Sofia!" It is so sweet how much they love each other.
getting really tired of this camera and its lame flash throwing shadows. i plan to start walking around with one of those big white reflectors in my purse.
