Our kids with Jade, Eden and Danny (on the end)
There were at least 10,000 people there!
The kids all went and bought junk food part way through =)
Keenan woke up to decorations, gifts and his favorite breakfast - sausage and tater tot casserole!
Check out this amazing card Moriah made him!
Him all decked out in his lacrosse gear
Caleb got him one of the Hershey Gold bars that we saw advertised during the Olympics
Moriah got him a huge chocolate, caramel pecan patty
Birthday Adventures in Odyssey for all three from Tim and Steph!
A new, super cool watch from Grandpa and Grandma E!
It has lots of cool functions and seven different back light colors!
He also received $60 in cash from other grandparents and family!! Wow!

Going for a ride...
It's so sweet how she holds it just like humans hold their babies
Look at that sweet face!
I think this handsome dude is the dad
Next, since it was such a nice day, we visited Botanica for the first time of the season (the Pennys gifted us with a season pass and we are SO excited!!)
We went to the Chinese garden first (we hadn't been here before):
This long dragon on the wall was amazing and made out of ceramic!
Beautiful pansies (one of the few spots of color that had appeared yet)
Moriah in a fun spot in the Children's garden
We went home for lunch and then in the afternoon, headed out for a family bike ride... that turned into Eleven miles - just perfect for Keenan's 11th birthday!!
Ready to set out
A picture from the back of the pack
Taking a break
Love this shot on top of a hill in Planeview
After dinner (which was "lawnmower tacos" - another new favorite), they had homemade ice cream cake!
How is he ELEVEN!?
After dinner the kids watched the Lego Ninjago movie (and Philip and I watched Thor Ragnarok) ;)
After the movie, at bedtime, we surprised Keenan with this fun, decorated bed in the guest room, and permission to stay up as late as he wanted, reading. =) It might have been one of his favorite parts of the day!
He took a ton of books in there, got settled...and was asleep half an hour later :)
Happy Birthday, Keenan! We love you, we are proud of you and are constantly amazed at the things you have learned through reading! We pray that God continues His perfect work in you and that this year is a milestone for you to look back on and remember His faithfulness to you. <3 p="">3>
