Abby’s Eleventh Birthday

Abigail turned eleven yesterday (7/17). She wanted to go to the Olive Garden in Raligh for lunch. She and I went by the radio station earlier in the morning and then visited in the hospital before returning home to pick up the rest of the family. We let Caleb drive to Raleigh for us. We were in a good bit of traffic and he did a great job for us. We had several of Abby’s presents already picked out, but we wanted to find an inexpensive mp3 player for her. We found one at Target with 1 GB of storage for about $35. She was thrilled when she opened it. She loves to listen to the Steve Pettit Evangelistic Team, The Wilds music, Soundforth from BJU, Mac Lynch, Matt and Christy Taylor, and Ron Hamilton. I loaded her mp3 player when we arrived back at home and she listened to it last night. While in Raleigh we ate at Olive Garden and then stopped by the Triangle Town Center Mall. One thing she requested was that she get to bungee jump on the trampolines in the center of the mall. They strap you into a harness attached to the bungee cords and then have you jump on the trampoline. The bungees tighten and you fly way up into the air up near the second floor of the mall. Here is picture of Abby jumping. She enjoyed flipping backwards and forwards. She looked like a little gymnast. I apologize for it being blurry. It was the best picture I could get. The photo above was taken outside the mall on the rocks by the waterfall outside the food court. We had a great afternoon. I had to return to Wilson for a school board meeting so I didn’t get to enjoy the cake that she and her mom made earlier in the morning. It was a chocolate and peanut butter eclair cake that they said was delicious. I probably didn’t need it anyway.
