We celebrated Dave’s 33rd birthday tonightsince he will be gone on his real birthday. Emma and I took him out to dinner. It was so nice. Emma also made him a present. She said that it was captain hooks’ telescope. Lucky Dave! She was so proud. He loved that she made it for him. Tomorrow we have another party with friends before we send Dave off again to finish his summer stretch of camps. It really has been a good summer for all of us. We have much to be thankful for. Happy birthday babe! Life keeps getting better and better with each year!
