Happy birthday to Kee! :)

Yesterday, we celebrated Keely's 11th birthday a few weeks early. We are headed to South Carolina this week and it's an 18-hour drive {gasp!} so we thought Keely would appreciate her iPod, which was her big gift this year.

I have to soon as she opened it, I thought to myself, "Well, there goes another child...lost to electronics." ;) A little melodramatic, yes, but I know there is a little bit of truth in that sentiment. Connor told me this morning that it wouldn't be long until I lost him too. Lovely.

Anyway - we had a nice day at the lake. Pete, Peter, Mom, Maura & Jake celebrated with us and we all enjoyed a sunny afternoon with each other. I think she was a happy birthday girl - she received some really nice and thoughtful {and some funny} gifts.

We are very blessed to be able to spend days like this with family. I wish Matt and Laurel were closer, but we will be seeing them soon too!

I'm sure I will post something else on her OFFICIAL day - June 27 - but still, happy early birthday to an incredibly sweet and kind young woman.
