Happy Birthday Ben!

This year Ben celebrated his birthday Northwoods style in Minocqua!  We started out the day with a morning date:  a peaceful walk into town and breakfast at a local coffee shop while my sister stayed back to help the kids with breakfast and get them ready for the day.

We may look a little sleepy, but I promise, we are morning people! 

While I enjoyed a vanilla latte, the non-coffee drinking Birthday Boy indulged in a strawberry smoothie that looked more like a strawberry shake!

Later that morning, we all decided to take a walk into town so Ben could pick out his birthday gift at the Green Bay Packers Fan Store.  He chose a Packers Polo shirt and a gift that reassured me that no matter how much I fret about Zach growing up, there will always be a little boy inside just waiting to play with a cool remote control helicopter that projects the Green Bay Packer 'G' on the wall when the lights are out.

The afternoon was spent in classic Minocqua style:  on the boat.  Then it was time for a birthday dinner at The Thirsty Whale.

A birthday is never complete until there is cake.  We returned to the cabin after dinner to indulge in ice cream cake!

I think we all enjoyed celebrating Ben's special day and can't wait to do it up Northwoods style again next year!
