Happy Birthday To Our Little American
Yesterday, August 6th, our Little American turned 3 years old. I know everyone says this but it's so true...it is amazing how time flies. Especially when you have a child. I really can't believe 3 years have already gone by. Papa Dan and I were together 16 years before the Little American joined our family. Time flew by then but now with little Daniel, it seems as if we've escalated to warp speed. We spent the week in Dillon Beach with his first cousin Keano who is 3 years older. They had a great time bonding.

His nanny Mimi(whom he seems to at times love more than us) threw him a pool party the weekend before we took off to Dillon Beach. His neighborhood friends attended. He loved all the attention. This is the first year that he seemed to understand the concept of birthdays. He wanted one everyday after this party for the 6 days leading up to his actual birthday.
That's his Papa Dan in the red t-shirt trying to relive his spring break days back in the 80s.
The Little American enjoying his personal past time....enjoying pizza at one of his favorites stops, Chuck E Cheese's (Yuckie Cheeses according to Papa)
Papa Dan, who swore Chuck E Cheeses was too pedestrian, couldn't be dragged away from this game. He was playing not just one but two games simultaneously as though he were at a Las Vegas casino. All he needed was a cigarette in one hand and a cocktail in the other.
Finally, several photos of our little American from the last 3 years. A reminder of how much he has grown since the first time he joined our family.
Happy 3rd birthday son. We love you.
