Zach turned 14 on May 9th! We decided to keep it low key and The Avengers had come out a week earlier (I think). All of us really wanted to see it, so I told Zach he could take one friend. Then I realized that we only have one car and it seats five people. Kurtis volunteered to stay home and watch it another time, so we wouldn't have to rescind the invitation, or buy a mini van.
We loved that movie! It was so much fun! After the movie, we came home and had pizza and cup cakes, and opened presents.
Sunday, Zach advanced in the youth program of our church from a Deacon to a Teacher. My parents came, Kurtis blessed Zach with more priesthood responsibilities, and we ate steak (except me. Steak is gross. I ate chicken), and had more cake.
See, they really loved the show.
Zach's birthday cupcake!

The cake I baked for Sunday.

And now, for your listening pleasure:
