We flew to California to celebrate Gabe's birthday last weekend. My parents drove down and met us there. It was a lot of fun helping get ready for his party and spending time with him again. At first he was shy and pretended we were not even there, but he warmed up eventually and showed off all his new skills. You see it even more how fast they grow up when you are not with them on a regular basis. I came home determined to spend more time on Skype with him so that we don't waste time warming up to each other the next time!
