My Birthday!

Hey everyone! Yesterday was my 16th birthday!!!!
I woke up yesterday as normal, did chores and walked my pig. He even decided to give me a birthday present and walked nicely for me!!! YEAH!!! We had a great breakfast of a sausage and egg casserole and then headed out to the door for church. When we got home we got all of our beach stuff together and headed off to a beach (Lake Michigan) about 2 hours away for the rest of the day. We got there around 4:00 and left around 8:30. My aunt and uncle and cousins live about 5 min. away from the beach and met us there. We had lots of fun in the water (the waves were PERFECT) and had an awesome supper of brotz, chips and fruit. Ummm, it was awesome. I also got 4 hours of driving time in so that was way cool. I received 2 really neat shirts, the Fireproof soundtrack, the book Do Hard Things, and some chocolate.

Thanks to my family for the wonderful birthday! I love you all!
