I just LOVED the idea of this family's tradition, well, this boys choice to HONOR such a tradition? Woo WEE!:

"For his 13th birthday, each boy in the Bellamy family chooses a "hard thing" to do, accompanied by Dad. Luke, the eldest, went on a paleontological dig at the border of Colorado and Utah where he used a jackhammer on solid rock for five days straight. Seth, the next eldest, chose to ride the Katy Trail State Park in Missouri, up and back---a 450 mile trip."
