Beth's birthday is Thursday, which is our Bible study night. She is turning 16. This is my baby, y'all. How can this be?! Anyway, we had her party last night with her friends, because it was the only time that everyone could come. We had 7 girls, ranging in age from 14 to 25 . . . all good friends of Beth's . . . and 2 boys . . . Andrew and his friend Ryan. All these kids and young adults go to different churches, but attend youth activities together, so they're all good friends. Ryan and his sister, Jessica, go to our church.
After we bowled the first game, we stopped for pizza, cake, and presents. Beth received sweet, thoughtful gifts from her friends - a Ty stuffed animal and a candle, a beautiful scarf, and a Lululemon hoodie, which I understand is the fashion accessory to have. Apparently I'm either behind the times or too old to know that. After the food, we bowled another game and our time was up.
Here are some pictures from the evening. You can see more on my Facebook page.
