Ben's 8th year - photo review

Monday, August 19, 2013


Part of our road excursion last week included a trip to Kentucky to see Eleanor and her parents.
I think Ellie enjoyed hanging out with Benjamin.  While Benjamin enjoyed playing pinball for the first time.   Thanks  Crawfords for letting us crash your place and the awesome beer, cheese, and beer cheese.

Summer hoorah

It finally came. The end of summer, return of school is around the corner and we squeezed in a final hoorah.
We camped in Tennessee at Natchez Trace. We continued onwards to Max Patch, NC - a place I've wanted to
visit for years. It is a miraculous place even IN a rain cloud.
We visited with a dear friend of mine and our boys were instant friends, much like Jessy and I. We hiked, tubed down the river and had a wonderful visit. We left the Whited's NC home for the Crawford's KY home. It has been 5 years, two (and 8/10s) kids and a house change since last we were here.
Cloudy was excited to visit with his cousin Ellie but it is Ben who stole her attention.

Benjamin turns 8

Ben celebrated 8 amazing years.  He flopped back and forth between a Harry Potter party and another Star Wars party.  Star Wars win every time.  A few friends and a our nieces showed up to enjoy the obscene amounts of food, and cakes, and fun.

His Millenium Falcon cake.
