Halfway to 21

If you've been hanging out with us for a while, you know that half-birthdays do not usually slip by unnoticed. Yesterday was Weston's, and he is now halfway to 21. What he wanted to do on his special day was throw the football around with his dad and eat steak. As a bonus, we also worked in a visit to Kuirau Park, a geothermal area with boiling mud puddles, interesting rock formations, and steaming lakes. It was a really neat place and very otherworldly, and we all had a good time. 

What 10 1/2-year-old boy wouldn't want to celebrate with boiling mud puddles?!

The disadvantage of this neat place is the sulphur smell

Look, but don't touch!
