Samantha's 13th Birthday

Home Up


June 7th, 2014              

    Samantha decided that she wanted to have a group of her friends over for a bonfire this year to celebrate her birthday. She whittled down her guest list before deciding where to host her party, which was done at Grandpa Gary & Grandma Terry's house - we thought that their bonfire pile was much manageable than ours would be. The girls spent most of their time hanging around outside playing soccer, basketball, and other games. Once they moved inside for the evening Sam opened her cards and gifts from her friends before eventually calling it a night. It took a long time for the girls to go to bed at night, as their giggling was nearly unbearable for Tara & I at times. They slowly woke up in the morning, typically just before their parents arrived to pick them up in the morning.
