Friday was Jeff’s birthday. We didn’t officially celebrate until Saturday evening because he had been in California all week and didn’t get back until late Friday night. I did hurry home from school though and baked him his favorite “banana cream pie” and we had it waiting for him when we got home from picking him up at the airport. We even put a candle in it.
Saturday evening all of our family came over to celebrate. Jeff is on a big pie kick right now so per his request we had cherry pie and peach cobbler. Then he opened all of his gifts. He got lots of new accessories for his i-phone from his Dad and Debbie and my parents got him a large (Cardinal’s red )canopy with a zip on shade screen that we can use during baseball season. I have a feeling we will get a lot of use out of it in the coming years. My sister also got him a few books . . . this one seemed absolutely perfect for Jeff.
Grant also had his first two soccer games of the season this weekend. His team is called The Westside United. It was so much fun to watch them play. They lost their first game 5-2 and then today’s game ended in a tie 6-6. Grant spent the majority of both games as the goalie and I was so proud of how tough he was. Thank goodness he is not afraid of the ball.
