We celebrated Ben's NINTH birthday with a fun evening in the backyard. Ellie was so excited to get started that she headed out back before she was even dressed-- she borrowed Ben's shoes and let herself out the back door! The kids had fun playing outside (and Ben had fun talking on the phone with his friend, David) while Jacob got the fire going.
We made tinfoil dinners with sausage, potatoes, corn and broccoli-- aside from getting a bit burnt, they were delicious!
After dinner, Ben opened up his birthday presents!
And then it was time for some birthday s'mores! Happy birthday, sweet Ben!!
