And speaking of celebrating, Lee Anna gave us a good reason to the other day. On Saturday, we went to the annual 4th of July Party that the U.S. Embassy puts on here. It's always a good time, with tons of free food, fun games for the kids, and lots and lots of door prizes. Last year, we came home happy because we won a bag of camel-bone beetles and a packet of suncare products. This year, we did a little better.
First, we won dinner for two at a nice Lebanese restaurant. We were pumped about that, but only because we didn't know what else we had coming. At the end of the party, they had the final drawing for the big Grand Prize, and guess whose number they drew! Yep, Lee Anna's. I had to pick her up and carry her to the stage since she had no idea what was going on. She was a little spooked by all the people staring at her, but she handled it okay. What did she win? A 4-day, 5-night Nile Cruise, including airfare to get there! So now she just has to decide whether Mommy or Daddy gets to go with her. Who do you think she should take?
