Raul's Fifth Birthday!

My posts are going to go a bit out of order, but I wanted to post about his birthday today! Today Raul turned 5! This morning he woke up to our decorated Ronald McDonald room, which I had done after he fell asleep last night. Then he got to get a birthday "call" from the Paw Patrol characters, which he was excited about. When my parents came over he got to open all his presents! After breakfast, his Icing Smiles cake was delivered, which he was very excited about! Then we went to the zoo, where he got to feed the giraffe again and see all his favorite animals. We also went into another building this time that had really funny jumping/playful monkeys, as well as a cute baby monkey. After the zoo we came back to have our cake (which we were able to share with many other families here) and actually met another EB family on our way in. Then we did lots of playing until dinner, and now he is sleeping soundly after his busy birthday! Tomorrow we leave the Ronald McDonald House, and Tuesday we get to fly home! He will have the follow up for his grafts in Boston.
