Happy 9th Birthday, Jack!

Our sweet Jack actually turned 9 almost a week ago, on March 21st. Of COURSE we’d never miss blogging about our kiddos birthdays, but we wanted to wait until we had a few pictures from the “party”. 🙂

This year, we didn’t have a birthday party for Jack at all! Instead, on Friday night, Mack and I took Jack and his best friend Clay to the Mineral Wells State Park for a little camping trip. There was fishing and the roasting of hot dogs & marshmallows, and a generally wonderful time had by all.

That last picture is Jack and Clay smearing around what can only be described as “gunk” on the side of the spillway. Kind of love it.

I grew up camping, but for Mack, this was only his third time. I’m determined that one day he’ll grow to love it as much as I do, but he has yet to be convinced. 😉

    I am definitely not a fan of camping, but those two scenery shots are breathtaking.
