Happy Birthday, Hector!

My older brother turns 40 years old today.
And he's in town to celebrate.
And in true Torres fashion,
the celebration started on Saturday...

With an amazing impromptu harmonica/rap duet:
trust me, you don't hear this everyday

And a visit to an awesome new playground in town:
 It's hard to tell who liked it more,
the kids or Hector.
OK, so maybe it was Hector!

And of course, gifts:
the girls presented him with an original,
one-of-a-kind masterpiece

And we ate and drank.
Like way too much.

And we played cards.
And argued.
But mostly laughed.
Really HARD!

And we had cake:

And sang Happy Birthday!

But mostly, we enjoyed being together.
And letting him know that he is loved.
A lot!

Happy birthday, big brother!
Thanks for letting us share such a special day with you.
We love you SO much!
