Awesome-ness: The boys had an awesome teen birthday party at the park!
Or maybe she could just claim she'd gone to bed early again...
Part of her wanted to sneak out and call Christopher later and make her excuses...
...But the other part of her wanted to spend the rest of the day with him, wrapped up in their new love!
"Christopher.." she whispered, leaning over him. "Do you want to go to the twins birthday party with me today?"
Christopher sleepily opened his eyes and grinned. "I would love to. Just let me get ready!"
Tracy blushed. "Thanks Ace!"
Ace glanced up and saw Becky Baker watching them. Well tough, he thought. She had her chance! Holding Tracy's hand, he headed over to where the cakes were set up by the fountain.
"Oh that's sweet, Dad! I love it!"
Chase fingered the strings on the bass and grinned up at his Dad. "It's wonderful. Thank you, Dad!"
Ace watched as the boys grabbed their cake and then sat, comparing their presents. Devon kept insisting that his gift was way cooler while Chase just smiled secretly, as though he knew it was no use to argue with his brother.
His boys were growing up...
Bethany turned and looked at her mother with horror in her eyes. "Mama! Come quick. It's your friend you came with!"
