The birthday weekend ~

March 23, 2011 082

Thursday morning will be a big deal around our house.  For the first time ever, we awaken as the home of a teenager (and I believe that we will be a teenager home for the next 15 or so years).  When did I get old enough to be a mom to a teenager?  A teenager!  {wink}

The boys wanted to do something special this year to ring in the teenager years for Bryce.  Not only that, we wanted to celebrate the 11th birthday of Grant.  My two oldest boys have birthdays only nine days apart.  They have shared a big party for years and they haven’t seemed to mind the least bit.  They have a very special brother/friend bond.  So to celebrate the guys’ birthdays, we headed out to our favorite camping site with a few of their buddies for a fishing birthday weekend.

It’s hard to get pictures of the guys.  They don’t always take kindly to me snapping away especially when friends are around…so I had to be sneaky! {smile}

While we were at the lake, we did a little fishing…

We did a lot of splashing and rock skipping…

and were amazed as we watch the sun quickly sink into the horizon.

We spent the weekend with friends and family as we celebrated the birthdays of two special guys.  It was a very special weekend.
