Happy 11th Birthday, Devin!

Devin had a wonderful 11th birthday celebration ... as luck would have it, the Braves were home on his birthday so we were able to get tickets for him and three friends to attend. I packed a light dinner for the boys to enjoy on our short ride - hot dogs, chips, and a coke.

My husband and I took the boys down to Turner Field early so that they could enjoy some of the fun activities they have for kids. They took turns in the batting cage and pitching cage. And, spent the rest of the time before the game in the Braves Museum.

Though the Braves continued on with their Monday curse, which has them losing almost every game they have played all season on Monday, we still had a great time. And, even with a short rain delay we were still home by 11pm. Just in time to open some gifts and enjoy mini-cupcakes from a cupcake bakery. {Thankfully, all of Devin's friends we took with us are homeschooled - as our schools in this area are already back is session.}

Two of the boys stayed over for the night and this morning I made one of Devin's favorites - cinnamon rolls.

Happy 11th birthday Devin! The time just continues to fly by, how is it that just yesterday it seems I was holding you in my arms for the first time. We are so thankful for the wonderful young man you are growing up to be!
