We are now an officially all teenager household. Bryce celebrated his 13th birthday, which is hard for me to believe. Once upon a time I couldn't believe I had 3 kids age 5 and under and now those 3 kids are all teenagers. CRAZY!
I would love to tell y'all we had a big 13th birthday celebration, but in all honesty Bryce's 13th didn't pan out as great as I hoped. Our plan was to take him and some friends to White Water. We did go to White Water, but only 3 friends were able to make it. There were a lot of people on vacation the day of his birthday. I also forgot to take a photo of Bryce and his friends while at White Water so I dropped the ball there. White Water turned out to be a bust too. Less than half of the rides in the park were up and running, which was a huge disappointment. On top of that they were still letting in the same amount of people so the line to ride the few things that were open were crazy long...like wait times of more than an hour. The boys rode maybe 3 things and then asked to leave because they were bored!
With that request we headed back home so Bryce could open his gifts. At our house when you turn 13 you get 13 presents. The celebration part of the birthday was on the lame side, but the present part was VERY exciting so that made up for it. We finished his day off with a hibachi dinner at Kani House and a double layer cookie cake at home.
Last but not least...Gift 13. Enjoy the series of photos and excitement.
The boy finally got a phone. He was probably the last of his teammates and friends to get one so he was thrilled and very surprised.
Happy 13th Birthday Bryce!
