Happy Birthday, Donna!!

How do you wish your sister a happy birthday when you live with her, shop with her and are in a foreign country??  Thank goodness she isn't big into birthdays or celebrations...especially when it's for her.  However, everyone wanted to be involved because Donna is loved by all who meet her.  This was her day...

Breakfast...not in bed...

A morning in the office...of course she had to get work done before a day of celebration.

Lunch with our favorite friend, Sister Dahle.  Lunch was at the Camayan Resort on the beach!!  It is a gorgeous location and a gorgeous day!  Then we headed next door to the Ocean Adventure Park..."the first and only open water marine theme park in Southeast Asia"...and it's in our back yard!

We got in a Dolphin show and a Sea Lion show before it started raining sooooo hard!   Even with the canvas roof covering, the rain spoiled the fun and came pouring in on everyone.

We will be coming back to this park!  It was a wonderful diversion when the need arises.  Because of time and rain, we missed out on one park activity that we were looking forward to...a fish pedicure!!  Watch for pictures from our next visit to the Ocean Adventure Park!
We weren't sure we were going to be able to drive all the way home because the rain was so strong and heavy...the streets get flooded...but we made it, and the rain slowed down before we reached our home.

We were tired and soaked!  Donna collapsed on the sofa with her birthday texts and emails while I took a shower.  THEN her next surprise came...

The Elders next door made a cake for this Sister that they love!  I had unlocked the door so that they could come in.  I told them to make LOTS of noise because it would scare her to death if they just walked in!  They had balloons, cake, and loud happy birthday wishes!!  It was a great ending to a great day.

I love this sister of mine.  I can't imagine this mission assignment without her by my side. 
Happy Birthday, Donna!!
