Yea, today is my birthday! I am now 26. Of course, I really don't feel older. I haven't felt older since I turned 20.
We had a party yesterday. Alex, Mea, Jonathan, Jake, Chelsea and Kayla came to the camp to see me. We hung out, ate pizza and watched Ken Davis. We had so much fun and I was so happy to get to see everyone. Chelsea stayed at the Island (the name of my room) with me and we talked until late. Thank you, Alex, for planning everything. I can't tell you how much it meant to me.
I didn't get to make my cake. One of the lifeguards couldn't come because of illness in the family. There was a large youth group swimming and even though Alex is an amazing lifeguard, they needed someone else to be a spotter at the lake. I was more than happy to help out. I was up early enough that I could bake my cake and still go help at the lake. So I gathered all my stuff, packed it in a box and headed down to the coffee shop to bake my cake. I got down there only to find the other group was using the coffee shop. I could have used the oven in the kitchen, but it is an industrial convection oven and I was afraid of burning the cake. I was pretty bummed because I had used my birthday money to buy the ingredients. Oh well. I will get to bake someday.
So in summary, it was a good birthday. I got to see my friends and hang out with them. Chelsea gave me the cutest guitar earrings. My first birthday away from Texas was a success!! Yea!!
