I have the odd fortune to have a huge number a friends who have birthdays in close proximity to mine. I swear, I grew up without knowing a single other Gemini (Ok, I knew one person who had the same birthday as me, but she and I didn’t hang out.) Now, as an adult, I have two friends who share my birthday and half a dozen friends who have birthdays within days of mine. This doesn’t even include my parents. My mother’s birthday is 7 days after mine and my father’s birthday is another 4 days after that.
So, for about, oh 8? 10? years now, my friends and I have been having a big joint birthday party. As times have changed the parties have gotten smaller and involved less alcohol and ended earlier. Now they involve offspring. Ah, how times have changed.
This year the kids were remarkably cute and SO energetic. For your enjoyment I have uploaded a video from the party of 7 1/2 month old Thomas and a bunch of photos from the party and also from a while back when we went out to cut down some trees felled by an ice storm (aah, life in the burbs) and one of the wee ones is wearing my hard hat.
Enjoy and if you’re the parent or Auntie of one of these kids, feel free to leave a comment if you want me to email you an original of one of the kidpics.
And here is the URL for the photos from the party. http://junebirthdays2011.shutterfly.com/
