October begins with several celebrations for our family. On the second, Mike and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. My parents had arrived the day before so Mike and I had a great dinner out at Bin 555, just the two of us. We were married here in San Antonio so it's fun to be back in the city that holds so many memories for us.

On Saturday, we went "balling" as EMN calls it. Mike had to work so he missed out on the fun, but the rest of us had a great time!

On the 6th, our daughter turned 4 and what a day she had! Since it was her day, she got to choose the food and activities for the day (within reason of course). Breakfast was waffles, lunch
was McDonald's (and eating inside), and dinner was ramen noodles and broccoli. Cake and ice cream followed and it all added up to one very happy girl. In addition to gifts from family and friends, EMN also received lots of cards and letters from friends in Arizona that made her smile. Thanks to all of you, friends and family alike, for making her day!! Below are a few photos from yesterday. First, she woke up happy and ready to celebrate! Hats were distributed to all and then after breakfast we were off to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens to see "bushes and butterflies" as she called it. The Gardens currently have a treehouse exhibit that was fun and the vegetable garden received lots of interest. The rest of the pictures are probably pretty self explanatory.

And in honor of her birthday, I'll do a brief retrospective of her last few years. First, the day after her birth in Seoul, at five months old near the glaciers in New Zealand, and then on her first, second and third birthdays. Amazing how quickly the days go ...

Looks like a great day Lindy had. Sorry we forgot to send a card to her(like we forget to send one to everyone else). Andrew and I kept saying we had to send a card and a gift to Lindy(it's true), but still, we forgot again! Ramen noodles... my favorite too!

Broccoli and ramen noodles! Sounds good to me. :)

Looks like she had a good day.
