Happy Birthday Logan

Yesterday was Logan's birthday and we started the celebrations last weekend. On Sunday Logan wanted his friend to come over, share some cake, and have some guy time at the movies with dad. I think it was a great way to spend a 14th birthday. It is also great to see that Logan has made a great friend and that they have a lot in common.
We also decided to drag on the celebration since school was out this week and head up to the Smoky Mountains and hit up Wilderness at the Smokies. Keith and I had taken Lennah and Delylah there several years ago so I thought the big kids would love it. Unfortunately Keith had to work so I was solo handling all five kids but it went well. I was surprised that they didn't give me too bad a hard. Heather, Logan, and Zach virtually went off and did a lot of rides alone while I of course watched the little kids. Teens never want to hang out with the parents. Lennah and Delylah had to spend time juggling between whose turn it was to pick what activity we would do next. Lennah hates big water slides while Delylah loves them so it is a chore to call back a big kid to watch Lennah while I take Delylah down a slide but it worked out well in the end. Zach also cracked us up because he went on the surf rider and lost his shorts on the ride. We all cracked up. He did manage to get them back on and he was laughing along with everyone else over the mishap.
