Zachary Garrett - Through the Years

Today is Zachary's 8th birthday!  Zachary was our 17th grandchild and our 10th grandson.
He is an important part of this large family.
And an even more important part of this beautiful family.
I wrote about Zachary in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 and those posts tell you a lot about him.
And the following pictures will show you how he's changed physically through the years.

And now I want to talk about what Zachary has been up to in the past year.  The first thing I can tell you is that he's been busy because he's always busy.
He played basketball,
and baseball where his statistics in the all-star game were as follows:  2 singles and a double with 5 RBIs, and 2 innings pitched where he allowed only 2 runs.  His favorite game is soccer but I see him playing baseball someday.
He also worked hard on his Pinewood Derby car for Cub Scouts

 And won first place for best race car style in his pack and then he competed at the District level and got 3rd place for style.
He spent Christmas in Florida with his family.
And the week between Christmas and New Years in Gulf Shores with his large extended family
In Gulf Shores he enjoyed the water
And his first toasting in of the New Year (a little early)
I know I haven't covered everything this busy boy has done in the past year but I think I've shown that he's been busy.  He is one smart, athletic, sweet, competitive, and imaginative boy and we could not be more proud of him.  We're hoping the coming year is even better than his day has been (and we know it's been good) and we're wishing him the happiest birthday EVER!
