She is 19 now, just beginning to step out on her own and make choices with as little parental advice as she can get away with. We are trying to hold back but I'm sure she would tell you we are failing. Haha
We had a great time on her birthday. We spent the morning renting paddle boats at a county park and exploring the lake. Had a yummy picnic under a gazebo overlooking that lake, it was filled with purple martins. Their nests were all up inside the gazebo and we got to watch these little beauties swoop over our heads in and out of their nests. So beautiful! Then a movie, a fire, smores and friends. The camera batteries ran out first thing. It's ok.
