Happy 14th Birthday Riley!

I can't believe he's 14 already! My baby bird has grown up. He wants a bike for his birthday so we are still looking for the one he wants, and we may have to order it, so for now, he hasn't really gotten any presents. The guys had a camp out on the hill at church over the weekend, so most of their weekend was spent doing that, or recovering from doing that! Then on Sunday, it was our day to serve at church, and that always makes for a long day.

Monday, on his actual birthday, Riley special requested Chicken and Arugula Pita Pockets for dinner. Regan and I had a Girl Scout meeting, so I made that for him before I left, and Regan made him some bacon-cheese fries for a snack, she's so nice to her brother sometimes! (Although, I think she wanted them more than anything!) so we didn't really get to celebrate much until Tuesday night, we went to dinner with Mimi and Papa at Chuy's, everyone's favorite place to eat. He really wanted them to come sing Happy Birthday to him, so they did, he loves being the center of attention sometimes!

And this came today, he doesn't know it yet, but we did get him a little something...

He is currently running for Student Council Vice-President, so he's been working on posters and his speech, and he seems to be doing really well in school so far. He made all A's and B's and is really liking 8th grade. I just still can't believe next year he will be driving!
