Happy Birthday Isaac!

Friday, February 5th was Isaac's twenty-fourth birthday. His mom took us to lunch and we really enjoyed getting to see her. Plus, she brought us a big box of yummy cupcakes! Since Isaac didn't really want to go out, we had dinner at my dad's house.  He made Isaac's favorite, beer battered chicken and a delicious cake with strawberry filling.

Saturday we went to his dad's house for home made enchiladas (another favorite of ours).  Jojo really enjoyed having balloons floating around the house for a few days and dragged them around when he could catch them.

For his birthday, I got Isaac a GPS device.  He had been talking about getting one for a few weeks so I decided to surprise him. He has been hiking with Elijah every Sunday and a few weeks ago they came across a geocache. I'll let Wikipedia describe it to you:
Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a GPS receiver to hide and seek containers anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container (usually a tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook. Larger containers can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. As of February 8, 2010, there are over 984,900 active geocaches over the world.
So basically, he can use his GPS to locate all of the geocaches in our area and then take it with him to find them up on the mountains around our house. You are supposed to log the date and time you were there, and then you take an item out of the cache and leave a different item in return. He stayed up all night setting it up. Since they are all over the world, he can take it when we go up to the cabin and find some up there as well.

All in all, I'd say he had a pretty great birthday!!
