Yesterday, the boys' actual birthday, was a pretty quiet day. We were all exhausted from the party and hallowe'en so we mostly just took it easy. While Rio was at preschool in the morning we took the boys downtown, then later in the evening we took the kids out for dinner to The Reef and we were very impressed with how successful the outing was. It was made better by the new seats we got the boys, and mama even got her drink in a coconut because the waitress knew it was the boys' birthday!
It was an emotional day, but over all much more happy than sad. I did coincidentally look at my watch at exactly 6:05 (the time I called Jordan to say the babies are coming NOW) so that was a sad moment, but other than that no really horrible flashbacks. All in all a great day, made even better by the special present we received in the mail (a separate post to come on that).
Today we are back to real life and will spend the rest of Jordan's days off doing errands and chores. Far less glamourous than a costume party, but unfortunately it can't be the boys birthday every day!
