HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY RINA!! Here are pics of Rina's birthday celebration! Nikolas thought he'd have a firetruck birthday cake with Rina. Not quite her idea so the compromise was a Thomas the Engine balloon instead. While we were out treating ourselves to manicures the boys lovingly decorated the house. We drove into the drive and there was a sign in the back of Mihai's car; "if you were a car, you'd be an antique". When we walked in the house, Nikolas bestowed Rina with a tiara reading "over the hill". Plastered around the house were various other versions of "you are old". Oh the joys of having a jokester brother-in-law, eh Rina?
Well, we're home and hosed. We had a lovely trip to Rockville, Maryland with the blister, her hubby and Fuggly. Now it's time for us all to return to our usual routines. In other words, Rina can go back to work and earn the money we're paying her rather than being bridges for her nephew! Though, a better bridge he'll never find! Thanks Rina and Mihai! See you in 3 weeks!
