I'm a little behind in posting this, but better late than never, right?
And it's still his birthday MONTH!
Daniel turned 14 on July 2 and had several celebrations over the next couple of weeks.
On his birthday morning, I gave him a portable DVD player and we treated him to Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the church office (where he was privileged to hang out for the morning and even got to go shopping with Josh, the youth minister, to get things for youth camp)! Daniel said, "I'm only fourteen and I've already had a birthday party at work!"
That afternoon, Cary took Daniel and some of his friends camping at Montgomery Bell State Park. Thankfully, the weather was unseasonably "cool" for early July, and they had a great time being guys out in the woods. I decided that they didn't need me tagging along for that adventure!
Later in the weekend, we got together with Grandma, Grandpa, Jeanette, Russell and Erica at the rehab hospital to have a family celebration. We ordered pizza, ate cake and ice cream and had a fun time celebrating Daniel!
Daniel also got to celebrate with his Ryan grandparents and Aunt Dana up in KY when he was there last week. He really knows how to stretch out those birthday celebrations!
