Friday was Nath's actual birthday. He invited Sami over and they swam in our pool for quite a long time. It was a beautiful day - 33 Celsius and not a cloud in the sky. The kids had a blast and we had to force them out of the pool when it began to get cool in the evening.
After Sami went home we opened presents and had birthday cake. As we had gotten packages to the house, I had been opening and wrapping them. Family didn't want to send things wrapped in case they were checked by customs. My mom even had me put several Monster Trucks together just so things would fit in a box. Nathan later said he would rather have just opened the brown boxes. Thanks for telling me that after I had bought several overpriced tubes of wrapping paper, son.

Brian and I found a Starbucks in Circular Quay and got coffees because even with the ponchos, jackets, and umbrellas, we were still fairly cold. I was looking forward to having a Pumpkin Spice Latte after seeing so many people talking about it on Facebook. Alas, it is only available in the United States. Stop taunting me, please!
We drove home in the pouring rain, which makes for a horrible drive. I was still cold and decided to take a nice hot bath in my lovely sunken bathtub. Nathan had a wonderful time, which is what matters the most. We love our favourite 7 year old!
