birthday wrap-up

We had such a fun family party for Rainer Saturday night. My parents came up and my brother and his girlfriend Lori came up. We ordered local pizzas and my mom brought a big salad and a huge bowl of farmer's market strawberries. Perfect!

Some facts about Rainer on his birthday:
:: he's an awesome dancer. You should see him move his hips! I really must videotape him sometime.
:: he loves to figure out how things work and he loves construction. I'm amazed at the geometric shapes he puts together with his various toys. I think he's a smartie, that one.
:: it's weird to think about, but he's been treated for leukemia since the age of 16 months and his treatment is still ongoing! He's doing great and will be done with chemo in July! He's pretty tough about the whole thing.
:: he's always ready with a hug (or at least, almost always). I love how cuddly he is.

Happy birthday sweet little guy!
