Ethan requested going to Breakout Montgomery for his birthday. We had one hour to solve lots of clues and breakout of the room with the Mona Lisa! We completed the mission in 53:58 minutes!
He invited the Michael's brothers over to spend the night.
On his actual birthday, he went to church camp a few hours away.
I would call this twelfth birthday a success!

Saturday, we visited Martin Luther King Jr.'s house.
We had the BEST tour. Our tour guide was amazing.
He included the boys and called them by name, and let them try items like a rotary phone.
The boys are standing on the spot that was bombed. Most of the furniture in the house was original.
After touring the parsonage, we went by the church. The ladies that were working let us pop upstairs and see the sanctuary. We had such a great day visiting more Montgomery history!
The boys participated in Splash and Dash the Sunday before school started.
There was lightning in the area, so instead of swimming
the kids did some exercises in the baby pool.
Ethan ran the big loop. Nate helped pace him the last bit of the race.
Nate ran with the little guys. They ran a mile. After running, everyone enjoyed desserts and pizza!
It was a fun night for all of us!
We took one last hurrah before school started.
We took the fellas to Atlanta to enjoy a ballgame and Six Flags.
We started our trip off enjoying hotdogs at Varsity.
We had a some time before the ballgame so we went to visit Jimmy Carter's library.
Nate said we only had two opportunities to see the Pirates play in Atlanta, so we booked a hotel within walking distance and got to the game early!
It was HOT!!! We took a quick walk around the stadium and
found that our seats were in the shade! YAY!
Nate and I had a great time. Unfortunately, the Pirates lost and the fellas were NOT happy about it!
Thankfully, we had a Six Flags the next day!
We made the most of the day and spent half of our time at the water park!
We got an early start home. Atlanta is only 2 1/2 hours away so we
decided to make a detour to visit DeSoto Caverns.
It was nice and cool in the cave and we had a great tour!
We had a great break!
