We have a teenager in the house! We are so grateful for the years God has given Evan, and praise Him for His faithfulness. Last Tuesday, November 15, was Evan’s 13th birthday, and the last of our family’s birthdays in Africa. I think it was a birthday we will all long remember. Our family was on a short vacation to the Kenyan coast over Evan’s birthday.
The day began with a glass bottom boat ride and snorkeling on a coral reef in the Indian Ocean. So many salt water fish have such vibrant colors. It was truly amazing. Next time we do this, an underwater camera will be in order!
For lunch, the kids were pleased to order personal pan pizzas from the resort’s snack bar, and then we spent the afternoon swimming in the pools and in the ocean.
And, of course, no birthday celebration is complete without cake and presents, which we enjoyed over dinner. The cake was brought by African dancers in dress, who encouraged the entire dining hall to sing “Happy Birthday” to Evan with them.
