The rest of Gabriel's birthday was a simple nice evening with the family.
Gabriel chose Bob's Big Boy for dinner.
Kiera enjoyed some coloring with her Great-Grandpa.

Dinner was following by the first yummy dessert that we all shared.

But fisrt we all sang to him.

Then we came home and opened presents.....

We finished off the night with some bubble fun.

Griffith Park - Gabriel's Birthday

Please note: Yes, I realize that it has been forever. No there is no real excuse, but I have enjoyed having time away from the computer. The last couple months have been crazy busy and both Gabriel and Kiera have gotten sick twice! It has been exhausting for us, but we are feeling more rested after a nice vacation and I am looking forward to catching everyone up on our latest excursions!

For Gabriel's birthday we happen to be in CA for other reasons. We were able to spend the day at Griffith Park with us, Grandma and Grandpa.

Edward helping Gabriel down that thing (whatever it is called). :)

The tire swing is always a favorite.

Yes, Gabriel got up there all by himself and yelled "I'm the king of the world!" I have no idea where he learned it from, but it was hilarious!
Break time waiting for the train ride.

"Gabriel, how old are you?" "I'M 4!!!!"

Kiera saying cheese.
(You can tell in this picture how much of her tooth she broke off last fall.)

Gabriel riding the ponies. I thought a slow pony was the way to go. Gabriel went around the first time and liked it, but wanted to go faster. The second time they took him around he just got annoyed. He talked Grandma & Grandpa into taking him one more time on a "fast" pony.....

...and he loved it! Daddy was right.
Kiera was not going to ride the pony. So she got her ride from Daddy.

Enjoying the train ride.

Gabriel wanted to ride with me. With Grandma there I am usually 2nd or 3rd choice, so that made me happy. :)

Grandpa, Kiera, Grandma and Gabriel ~ I think they were pretty tired by the end of the day.....all of them!
