Kohlton turns 17 this weekend and Ellie wanted to make sure that Kohlton felt celebrated and special. And my, did she do a great job. School starts on Monday for them, so they spent today celebrating. It started out with a nice breakfast, then a mountain bike ride at Bear Creek Lake Park, home and then to the circus. She also made a super special birthday present.
She spent many, many hours of joy creating this special momento box.Ellie started out with a plain wooden box and a wood burning tool from the craft store. She decorated the outside of the box. It smelled nice all afternoon.Then she went through and printed photos, made copies of tickets from events they attended, momentos from the events and organized them into dated envelopes.
After a quick dinner the kids also went to the Zoppe' Family Circus. I am excited to hear what it was like. They are in town for a few more days and I may need to go as well.
On a completely different note, here's what the kids are watching and enjoying:
