The end of June is a crazy time of year in the Gonzalez household- the twins’ birthday and mine are 2 days apart!  Their birthday was Friday, but since this weekend is the America’s Cup in Newport this year (part of it, anyway), poor John had to work on his birthday, and Saturday and Sunday.  We took a cake to West Marine where he works, but he’s still exhausted and none too happy to be working!

Katie was upset to be turning 17, but was wishing with all her heart she could be 13 again.  Also- she was a little preoccupied as her boyfriend’s baby sister was born the night before!



Yeah…. I wish I was turning 13, too!  Heck, I’d settle for 23, really.
