Our sweet big boy turned 9 yesterday.  We were all so happy to celebrate our Bay. Dyllon had decided to buy him him a yeyow boat.  ( I was quite relieved to find one in walmart the day before the birthday).  The kids were super excited to toast to Sandy's birthday with some sparkly apple juice.  I think it was the highlight of the day.
We cooked Dinner on the grill, and ran out of gas just when the chicken was cooked, phew.  ( I still don't have a working stove).
