the 'teen' years

After an entire day away from her family
(school and track until 6pm), we were able to
enjoy some time with our teenager! Syd and
Ty decorated a cake for her and Summer
had requested tacos for her birthday dinner.

We should have never taught Ty the face-in-the-
cake trick. He thinks he is sooo cleaver. Don't
tell him that Summer was playing along. ;0)

Then he insisted that Summer do it
to him....big surprise there!

Another huge surprise....Sydney followed
their lead and became the messiest by far!
Summer's 2 birthday requests
1. A bow and arrow set
2. A unicycle

As you can see, she got her unicycle.
Truth is, she bought it for herself with the $100
her grandparents gave her....
I'll post about that later.

As for her #1 request, will she get the
bow and arrow? Who knows since the present from
her parents hasn't arrived in the mail yet!
Arrgghhh! Sometimes online shopping stinks!!!

Happy Birthday, Summer!!!

I actually had a boy ride his unicycle to my house when I was a teenager...never knew anyone since then with one. Ok Summer, it only took 42 years.

Hope she had a great b-day! Sorry we didn't even get to call, but we thought about her all day! Welcome to the teenage years, Summer...good luck, Jen!
