Nathanael is my Independence Day baby. No longer a baby. Newly 15. He and I celebrated his first fourth of July, together, in the hospital. 🙂 He still looks just as good in red as he did as a wee small one. 🙂 We celebrated his birthday a weekend early to make sure we got to fully enjoy it before he left for Summer Camp on his actual birthday.  Nathanael is an incredible blessing to me. He is a calming help to have around in a stress filled situation, a wonderful help to me when I am running errands, and my right hand man when Micah is away. I am so blessed to have him in my life.  Most recently, he helped me during my frantic Scout camp cooking endeavor- more on that later. 🙂

He chose a wonderful meal!

We enjoyed Roast, Corn on the Cob, Watermelon, Roasted Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli, Lemonade, and Sprite.

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Icing and Vanilla Dairy Free Ice Cream.

I always check in with my children as to their comfort level what is posted on here. If they are not comfortable or okay- I do not put it up!
