My Birthday Wish

When I turned 8, I made a wish as I blew out my candles.  That wish came true on July 5.  I had wished for a little brother.  I was very, very pleased with my birthday-candle-blowing-wish powers.

It took several years for me to figure out I wasn't really responsible. That maybe my Mom and Dad had something to do with it.  Especially once you realize that The Boss Man was born 3 months after that birthday. :)

So while I was visiting Amelia Island, The Boss Man celebrated his birthday - a day early since Pita and AB could not stand the thought of waiting to assist in opening his presents a minute longer!

After the birthday fun, we headed to the beach!  Thankfully, Prima Ballerina is a great Mom and packed lunch and snacks and drinks for us kids.  We splashed and floated and soaked in the sun. 

Then we splashed and floated and soaked in the sun some more before it was time to head home for dinner.  Our 4th of July was complete when we went back to the beach for fireworks over the ocean!  A perfect way to end this very full day!

Now that's quite a birthday wish!

I hope none of my boys wish for a baby sister, LOL.

That sounds like a perfect birthday celebration. Fireworks were just the icing on the cake.
