Bunches of Birthdays

With the advent of summer also comes a lot of birthdays in my family - my grandson turns 3 on June 12th, my favorite aunt has a birthday on June 14th, Amanda turns 16 on June 18th, my mother turns an undisclosed age on the same day, and Jamie will turn 15 on July 26th.

I'll be going over to my son's home in Rhode Island for a slightly early birthday celebration for Mathew on Sunday but as far as the others go, things are still up in the air. I know that Amanda would like to do something special for her 16th but I've got no clue what that might involve and, unfortunately, it looks like Jamie is going to be spending her 15th birthday down in Florida at her Dad's. Somehow I don't think any invitations will be coming forth from down that way but I'm going to have to make sure I send her something special to celebrate the day.

They recently got season passes to Busch Gardens so maybe she'll spend her birthday there riding the rollercoasters that she's come to really enjoy - just like I did when I was her age and didn't have a bad back and knew no fear!

Still ... I'd really rather have her home for the summer ...


  1. ah..I almost forgot you were a grandmother. (kind of an expensive month for you all)

    hopefully you'll have jamie home soon...

  2. Look at those blonde curls!! I always forget you're a grandmother too, but it looks like you're a lucky one. :)

    Maybe something will change and Jamie can come home. It really stinks that someone won't let her come up knowing that you're tight on money-one way is easier to deal with at a time-THE FLIGHT HOME COULD ALWAYS BE PURCHASED LATER.

    I just know Jamie is going to end up resenting her father. (You can delete this if you need to).

    That little one is a cutie! I love those blond curls.

    Jamis is a doll, and I hope she has a great birthday. *sigh*

    I see I'm not the only one who loves those curls!! What a cutie!

    My 16th b-day was spent getting my learners license - best day ever! :-)

  7. I wish you had her in CT for the summer too. Sending a hug.

  8. Oh my gosh - he is absolutely adorable!

    Jamie and I share the same day for our birthday! I, too, wish she were spending it with you.
