Jakie's 14th Bday & 4th of July

My baby boy is 14 years old,  Oh   My   Gosh!!!  He is such a soft hearted boy.  He cares about other people's feelings like no other boy I've ever known.  His latest concerns have had to do with the Holocaust and wrongs against Black people.  I'm not kidding.  He has read everything he can find and watched quite a few movies about each topic.  I pray he will grow up to change lives.

  He celebrated his birthday, first, with the morning at Tay's apartment.  Taylor picked him up at 9:30 and took him to play basketball.  They hung out until it was time for Taylor to go to work.  I picked him up and took him to lunch at "Tommy's", his favorite!  Then some of his friends came by to snack and go swimming with him for the afternoon.  Then the whole fam (minus Tay who was at work, but with the addition of Aunt Jo'D and friend Amy) went to Soupplantation (Jake's choice) for dinner.  Jake got a basketball, cash, GC to Tilly's, t-shirt from "Tommy's", a wetsuit for surfing and a few other things.  He was one blessed teenager.  And, we are two blessed parents!

And, we are so thankful to live in a free country!

OMGOSH! 14? Where did all the time go. Seriously when I started blogging he was not even a teenager. Happy late birthday to your baby boy. Looks like the celebration was a good one.
