Mark turns 15 today. For his birthday Jordon got him a stove and fuel canister. Since he is a teen and therefore occasionally clumsy, we also gave him a Jet Boil stand for his canister and stove. It makes the base wider and less likely to hurt himself.
and a one person mess kit. If he is going to have a stove, he will want to cook up something. We tossed in a pot scrubber so he can do his own dishes. Mark instantly realized what that mean for him and was more than a little sad.
Those (along with a lighter) were his early gifts as we went to Prince Albert National Park on Sunday for a day of hiking (we hiked the Narrows and Waskesiu River trails before Oliver ran out of gas) and photography.
Oliver gave him a set of frisbee golf discs. They are the same that the boys gave me for Mother’s Day.
Since Oliver didn’t have any discs, Jordon bought three Frisbees for a $1 each for him. This way he can join us when we play.
We also gave him a hacky sack. Every teen needs a hacky sack to kick around, even if they aren’t really good at it.
Happy Birthday Mark!
