Today we celebrated Paul's 13th birthday.
We went to the pool and then ate some of the best pizza in town.
The water was very refreshing. Everyone had lots of fun swimming.
Paul is such a good swimmer now.
I asked Paul if he felt older now that he is a teenager. He said yes!
Nolan loves the water. After going all summer not being able to swim I went ahead and let him.
Grandpa gave Dennis some tips on swimming.
William loves to do flips off John's shoulders.
Nolan likes to jump high into the air!
So does Little Guy!
Taylar joined us for the afternoon.
Andrew and Paul
Adam, Julia, and John
Jonny, Andrew, and Paul played two square after swimming.
Oliver loved the water. He was all smiles all the time.
That's a lot of candles.
It was awesome hearing Paul read his birthday cards. William wrote Paul a card saying that he would share the food that he buys from the store. William gets Caleb or Adam to take him to the store to buy his favorite cereal. He usually charges his younger brothers fifty cents a bowl. Instead, he will give Paul a few bowls for free!
Happy birthday Paul! You are such an awesome son. I love to see how comfortable to have become in our family. It is a blessing to be your parents.
