Noah took the wheel of the Catawba Queen on Lake Norman yesterday. He liked wearing the captain's hat and moving the wheel, but he really wanted to touch all the other levers and buttons. The captain even made an announcement that it was Noah's first birthday. We all had fun on our lunch cruise. It was Grammy and Grandad's first time on Lake Norman, which they got a kick out of because Norman is Grammy's maiden name. Here's some more pictures from the boat.
Last night, Matt made Noah's birthday cake: carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Noah's absolute favorite food is carrot muffins, so we think he'll like his carrot cake! We're going to have cake today at lunch, so that Matt can share the fun. We'll post more pictures later in the day.
