My wife likes to extend the kids' birthdays throughout the month, sort of like a beloved Communist dictator. Cake on the birthday, an extended family party, and then a grand gala for all their little friends. As Maja has turned seven this month, I guarantee you that I'll rant about the festivities (and I LIKE all of her activities).
However, my own April birthday has appeared to stretch into a life of its own. My lovely sister sent a two part gift: an awesome card (see below), but also a copy of Survive: Escape from Atlantis. It comes with shark fin playing pieces!
