John celebrated his 14th birthday on January 31. It was a busy weekend, full of fun and constant celebration.
We began the weekend on Friday night with his party for his friends. In the photo above you see Mason, Justin, and Reid. They had a great night.... lots of guitar hero, nerf gun wars, computer games and staying up until 4am. Ah, to be young again.
The next morning was greeted with donuts and a day of paintball. They spent the day shooting each other and playing war. Boys will be boys.... On Saturday night we had the family over for a fiesta. Soft tacos, beans, and delicious lemon cake and vanilla ice cream was enjoyed by all.
Rowan enjoyed watching JJ open his presents, but wondered why there weren't any for him. Just look at that precious face.
Claire was all tuckered out from the festivities. She fell asleep in Auntie Cindy's arms for quite a while. That was a wonderful treat for Aunt Cindy!
It really was a great weekend. We heard that there was even a huge football game played on Sunday in honor of John's birthday! We are so thankful for our beautiful boy. He's turning into a young man right before our eyes. Too fast... growing too fast.
