We've had several dinners with good friends complete with a Chilean love song played on the guitar and sung by Mr. Mendez!

Here are the chickens! Haven't they grown? They always come when we call them. And if we eat dinner out on the porch, they come and beg by the gate.

We celebrated Collin's 14th birthday. It's amazing to think this year, we will have all teenagers in the house!
|(As tradition, the birthday person gets breakfast in bed. Collin had raspberry cheese danish)|
In order for Collin earn a present. He had to do a form of exercise 14 times. He did push-ups, flutterkicks, squats and sit-ups.

Meagan made Collin's cake this year. It was a rice crispy soccer ball.

10 days after Collin's birthday, Collin's best friend, Matthew, celebrated his 14th birthday!

And to end this random blog post, a picture of Dave with a ski cap on his head :)
We will try harder to keep up with the blog... and with all the upcoming festivities we should have plenty to blog about!!
