Saturday was Chase's 17th birthday. As we had planned a day trip to a family reunion, we took him to dinner the night before. He chose Red Lobster, as he wanted crab and lobster. Cathy and Mark came because they were in town, going to the reunion with us. Chase does not really like cake all that much (I know!), but he does love ice cream. So we stuck a candle in his bowl and sang to him.
Happy 17th Birthday, Chase. We love you!
(thank you to everyone who sent cards/calls/gifts, too)
