We celebrated our big guy's birthday in style again this year!

It may have terrible food, and cost a small fortune, 
but the kids all LOVED it!
The cliff diving, the pirate show, the gorilla, the cave, the piñata, all make for an awesome evening!
 We also ended the week, with the big guy being honored at school 
for his accomplishments in running club.
Sixty nine miles done, all in 25 minute increments, before school, 
on days where the weather cooperated.
