This year, we celebrated Anna's 11th birthday. It is becoming more of a reality just how fast kids grow up. I still remember it like it was yesterday having Anna while we still had 6 weeks left of classes to finish our degrees at Bethany College. We spent Monday, doing various fun things like having corn fritters, bacon and eggs for breakfast (not something we eat very often). Then we went on an adventure climbing up the mountain to the "Mary Alter" and then started on some trails leading up the mountain. After an hour or so we turned back to go down the mountain. We ended up going down a different way which at times was a little scary for the girls as they would slide down a little ways. Levi was not allowed to let go of my hand during our decent. We all got a bit burned from the hot mid-day sun. We didn't think we would have been hiking so long. Everyone wanted to keep going. After that, we went downtown to buy a carton of "good ice cream". The kind you only get on special occasions and Anna's favorite Chinese food for lunch. She opened presents, and had cake and ice cream, and then it was off to the movies to see the new Cinderella movie. Needless to say everyone was pretty tired after the day we had.
