Hero Turns 11

We celebrated Hero's 11th birthday during our camping trip. We spent the day at Noah's Ark water park (I think the older kids enjoyed it, but I must admit it was a long, tiring day for me although I did actually ride on two of the family waterslides) and then when we rolled back to camp, exhausted and more than a bit water-logged it was party-time. Mom brought a cake on the trip from Wausau (that was a feat in and of itself - cakes don't fit in coolers properly) and a few decorations. Hero had already gotten most of her gifts earlier (an ice-skating jacket and a shopping spree) so the celebration was fairly low-key, but hopefully it was an 11th birthday to remember.
