We've had a fun birthday week celebrating Ben's birthday. Tuesday, he got his first birthday card from his parents with a gift. Wednesday, Ben mowed the yard and I thought I'd give him his birthday present early (a blower for the yard)since it would be so practical. Thursday we brought an ice-cream sandwich cake up to school to celebrate with his class. Friday he received a packed in the mail from my Mom and couldn't wait to open it (very nice shirts.) An today we made him a nice breakfast (cream cheese French toast, hash browns, and bacon, all at his request), he has a softball game this afternoon, and tonight we got a sitter and are going to a restaurant on the lake. Happy 25th birthday. We love you!
