Buddy’s Birthday

Buddy’s Birthday

We have been on the go for the last three weeks. Between Africa, New York state, and Michigan, I have only spent two nights in my bed since the madness began. While I hope to catch all of you up on these trips and what is going on in our lives soon, first things first – Buddy had a birthday.

Since we were on the road, we celebrated Buddy’s birthday in a hotel. Just to give you an idea of what kind of eleven-year-old boy Buddy is, here are a few shots of him in the pool.

The Belly Smacker

The Back Smacker

The Gang

CrazyMom is amazing, as you know. Even though we were on the road, she had a homemade cake for Buddy. It was not her finest creation (you can see her princess cake here), but pretty impressive given all that was going on in our lives.

Buddy got some great presents – like this kitchen appliance. It is not every boy that asks for a dehydrator for his birthday.

Happy birthday, Buddy!

Can't wait to hear about the trip to Africa. Wondering if that means your family is about to get a little bigger and a little crazier.

Africa? Wow! We need to hear more, definitely.

Maybe not any bigger right now, but definitely a little crazier. . .
