the kids kept auntie gayle's orcas island surprise birthday a secret! they helped grandma make a special cake, and they shopped for sweet little presents. they wrapped them and didn't say a word for an entire day. they could hardly wait for the moment when they could sing and eat cake (mostly to eat cake, but they sang with gusto too). we loved spending a fun night with AG, and i think she likes her gifts (fancy mint soap, a bracelet that luca made, a necklace from luca's dress up bin, and a little capsule necklace with a secret message from the kids inside, a ball made of wiki sticks). good times!
