James Turns 12!

James turned 12 this past weekend!!

Celebrations began with a family hike and picnic at Eagle Creek. Arthur and James share the same birthday weekend so there were two cousins to celebrate! YAY!!!!!

On Sunday Michael's parents arrived to join us for church and the rest of the day. James opened his presents and we all enjoyed his requested carrot cake. 

 Monday we headed to Rachel and Andrew's high school to give Grandpa and Grandma a quick tour and to say goodbye to the high schoolers:

The rest of us headed down to Fountain Square to visit Wildwood Market and walk around the area. We noticed this statue with its surprising resemblance to the Pioneer Woman statue in Grandpa and Grandma's hometown.

And here is the famous fountain of Fountain Square.

Grandpa treated everyone to lunch for James' birthday! What fun!

James was very blessed to have so many of our extended family participate in his birthday celebrations! And now onto the thirteenth year!
