-My dad turned 70 on July 8th. Normally my family gets together to celebrate everything, but we weren't able to do that for my dad's birthday. My siblings and I felt bad about that so my oldest sister (Baby Kate and Baby Kynlee's mom) planned a surprise day trip for my dad. We sent him on a train trip to Santa Barbara with my mom, and then we all surprised him and had lunch, walked to the pier, rode surreys, and ate cake and awkwardly sang "Happy Birthday" on the side of the beach. I channeled my inner Steven Spielberg and made a video out of our trip, which I've embedded here. By far the sweetest moment of the day was when Baby Kate saw her Grandpa for the first time. She had been so excited to surprise him and practiced yelling out "Surprise!" and "Happy Birthday, Grandpa!" but when she saw him she was overcome with emotion and it looked like she was going to start crying.

And that's it for now. Thank you for your time, good day.
