It's my last weekend before heading back to work, so we did it up properly with a boat ride and a little birthday party for Jambo. Yesterday we took advantage of a few hours of sunshine with an impromptu fishing trip. We didn't catch anything and had to head back to shore after a bunch of black clouds moved in over the lake, but we had such a good time while we were on the water.
Today we had a little party with some of the neighborhood kids to celebrate Jamie's birthday. We blew up balloons and hung up decorations and then had a bunch of screaming four-year-olds over for cake. The Swede and I had fun and the kids seemed to have a blast if the state of our house afterwards was any indication. Jamie was really happy to get to see his friends after the long vacation; so happy, in fact, that we could have skipped the balloons and cake altogether and it still would have been an awesome afternoon.
