Ben turns 8 on September 8!

Friends have told me this is your Golden Birthday – when you turn the same age as the date you’re born on. And, I am sure the Chinese find this date auspicious: 8/9/10 (Ben’s birthday this year written as it is in Asia).

We did an overly ambitious celebration this year but it was good fun for the 13 boys! We took everyone over to an outdoor tree top obstacle course called Forest Adventures.

Here is Ben in a tree:

Lots of Ben’s good buddies were able to come – both kids from his class and kids from the neighborhood:

Q-ing Up:  John, Davis, Ian, Pacific, Luke, Hayden, AJ and Anthony
