Zane got braces the day before his 14th birthday. (A gift he would like to return.) He woke up on his birthday pretty sore and was sure his day was ruined, but with the help of Tylenol, Advil, and Orajel numbing mouth wash, he survived.
We arranged for Zane to have his friends Zach and Luke come home with us after school for birthday fun. (Believe it or not, having school friends over was a first for us.) We stopped on our way home for milkshakes and french fries. Once home, the boys played basketball and with RC toys. They also played a little Wii and got in a wrestling match. After dinner, they all went to youth group at Norkenzie.
Zane’s birthday fun concluded with a family party on Saturday. All his grandparents came as well as his Aunt Joy, Uncle Tim, and Lolly. Zane picked biscuits & gravy, breakfast links, and eggs for his birthday meal.
As Grandma Marsha was preparing to leave, I noticed Zane had reached a new milestone. He’s officially taller than Grandma! He is 5′ 1/4″ tall and is getting close to 90 lbs.
