He received a box full of new (to us) Hardy Boys mystery books from his WA grandparents ~ score!! He only likes the "old" version of Hardy Boys, and we only own about 7 of those. So he was a happy camper to have so much more reading material!
Hubby and I gave him his very own tackle box for fishing, complete with hooks, bobbers, and bait.
And his very own pole!
After singing happy birthday to him ON his "birthday minute" (2:18 p.m.).....
.....we headed out to a nearby lake for a family fishing trip!
The birthday boy!
We had an extra child with us for the day ~ a good friend of our daughter H. Fortunately she loves fishing too!
My honey. :)
We caught lots of blue gill about this size.
Happy, happy birthday son C! The day you were born you changed our lives for the better, and we are so very grateful God gave you to us. May you have a wonderful year being 11, and grow as Jesus grew ~ in stature and in favor with God and man. We love you!
