Yes, he did turn 14! In the midst of crazy life, we celebrated his momentous day.
He got to consume an entire can of soda on his own.
We enjoyed a great dinner of ribs, mashed potatoes, corn and cheese biscuits, at his request.
Ready to open gifts.
Polarized fishing glasses. Naturally, these were a request of his also. They're supposed to take the glare off of the surface of the water.
Cool fishing card, Grammie and Papa!
Trail mix from his sisters.
This is blurry, but I love this hug. We certainly encourage and want to see natural affection between the kids.
A set of drawing pencils and a book from his Aunt Leslie and Uncle John.
A magazine and a card from Calvin. Yes, this is before Cal's badly-needed haircut.
This portable chair is a gift from Grammie and Papa for Sam to use for, you guessed it, fishing.
And this. This is a new pocket knife from his dad.
Brownie ice cream sundaes for dessert. (Don't mind the masked bandit. How'd he get to be a part of this birthday party?!?!)
