Hello! Birthdays are magnificent! I went out to lunch with my wonderful family and we had a very good time. Robert gave me a shiny shirt and Aly gave me...well...stuff..

And then Aly took this picture of me in the shiny shirt )

Which she says makes me look like I belong in the Mafia. Don't I look amused? It must be the unshaven thing. I'm so grotty when I have a headache...but look, no bruises (at least not on my face)! And that's Robert's ring you can see around my neck. You can't usually see it because I'm not usually wearing mafioso chic. Robert won't let me take the shirt jackety thing OFF now. He's so mean.

Apparently I have a thing later tonight. Aly won't tell me what it is, but I am excited now! I hope you are all having a good day as well!

Well! Today was a wonderful day! My sister proposed to Emma. She said yes, of course. They're off 'celebrating'. And David's getting married on Tuesday! Such excellent and happy news. We took a day off from touristing too and so I spent all afternoon watching Thomas do this )

Today, Lydia and I talked and she's so grown up it scares me a little! She wants to get her ears pierced. And considering everything she's come through, I think she deserves to make that decision. She's excited because she gets to go shopping with Hope and Tasha and Zoe and Isabella. Meanwhile Daddy sits home and has a minor flipout that she'll come back with a mohawk or something. But she's proven that she's mature beyond her years and she deserves to have fun. And considering that all of her siblings are younger with the exception of Tasha, she also deserves to spend some time with older people who aren't parental units. I'm so proud of her.

And David. And Emma. And Liz. And I love Aly so very much.

Miguel, however, keeps trying to give me tequila. "For celebrate!" He is very nice and everything, but I currently do not love Miguel. And I wish I had some tequila. But wouldn't that just ruin a perfectly wonderful holiday. (I'll just keep reminding myself of that every 20 seconds).

Aly told me to do the photo thing. So that is what I am doing. By the way, Spain rocks. And I am having the best time, and cannot properly articulate how wonderful it is. Well, not without being a little naughty.

Valencia! And things! )

Hola, amigos! We're safely in Spain. Valencia to be exact. It's amazing here and I'm already completely relaxed. I know, marvel at the concept. But I had a nap. On a porch. In a swing! With Thomas (the baby one) in my lap and Aly leaning against me, and we dozed listening to the waves of the beach. Well, and the squeals of Hope and the not-baby Thomas as they splashed in the ocean.

Then I think I ate my weight in food, and Aunt Rosalia kissed me (noooooooooo) and I sat there like a moppet with Edward while Aly, Jacinta and David spoke to the cousins in rapidfire Spanish. Incredible, really. It made me remember our trilingual rehearsal dinner when Aly and I got married. Not that the Germans ever really talked. And Thomas and Robert spoke in Latin, just to be cheeky devils.

Anyway, I'm all relaxed and losing my point. Hi, we're safe and happy! And we have internet, even if Isabella is incredibly interested in what I'm doing over here. Tomorrow we're going to go see the Plaça de l'Ajuntament. Aly had to type that for me. I still can't even say it. But I'll take pictures!

Tonight, Isabella and Rosalia are insisting on taking care of the kids, so Aly and I are going out. It's going to be wonderful. We're going to have a date! In Spain! I might be excited.

I hope everything is going well for all of you!

My wonderful son is a month old today. To celebrate, Aly bought a video camera and proceeded to film me squealing and running out of shot for a good oh...seven hours. Apparently it never gets old. I beg to very much differ. Oh and she filmed the baby too. And...other things, but that was totally on a different tape. One can never be too careful.

Anyway, so we broke the camera in good and proper. Please do not punch me, David. I bruise like a peach.

Aly also took this picture. He is my handsome little man! So adorable when he's sleeping. And when he's awake. And when he's doing anything and everything ever.

And now there is singing and Lydia, Anna and Caleb make Thomas a cake. I did not help, but Aly did. I got to play with cutie widdle baby while they did all the hard work! And now I will eat the cake of their labour!

Today was fantastic! I think I kissed everyone... Though Tasha did show me Cradle of Fear which is a horrifying movie with like...gore and stuff. And naked ladies. Nothing like watching a movie full of naked women and having your teenage daughter turn to you and inform you, through her purple monkey voicey thing, that she likes the women's breasts and inquires as to your opinion. So...in essence, a purple monkey asked me "Do you like her breasts, Dad?"

Really didn't know what to say to that. Talking animals and dirtyness and the like. Poor poor Peter.

Oh and my wife does not like it when you sing 'zippidedoodah' by the way. Just don't do it! It's not a pretty picture!! Well Aly is always gorgeous, but she pinches hard!
