July 18th was Gabriel's first birthday. Time has gone by so quickly and he is just the neatest little guy ever. We love him so much!
Nana, Dah and the boys and I went to meet Hector for lunch for Gabriel's birthday. We went to his office and got to meet his coworkers and then had a nice lunch together.
That evening, Hector had grad school so Nana, Dah and I took the boys to Chuck E Cheese for dinner and games. Both boys had a blast!
After Hector came home from school, we enjoyed cupcakes together as a family. Gabriel was a little nervous about his candle being lit but he LOVED eating his cupcake.
After one little finger poke, he decided to just stick his face in it to eat it! It was hilarious!
Happy birthday Gabriel Michael!
