Happy Birthday, Dana MacDonald!
So yesterday was Dana's birthday. On such a momentous occasion, the whole family drove up to where he's going to college (about an hour away from us). We descended upon him, gave him cupcakes complete with a candle for him to blow out, sang Happy Birthday, and left with him presents in cardboard boxes. The rest of the afternoon we spent wandering about the town -- including a stop at Culvers for some ice cream -- in search of a certain park with we finally managed to locate. We watched some ducks, despaired over a clown face on the kiddie park, then drove him back to the campus. All in all, a very enjoyable day, and I hope it was for him, too. (I don't know how it couldn't have been, considering we brought him cupcakes.)
