I started the celebration myself the night before going through 16 years of pictures and being flooded with happy memories. I had a balloon and picture for each year of his life along with little notes from myself, his grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. I put them all in his room while he slept--so fun! It was a very sentimental project for me and my heart was filled with love for this boy that first made me a Mother!
Then I was up bright and early to make it across town to the DMV for a drivers license test!
I was a little worried thinking it would be horrible to fail on your birthday, BUT he passed, easily!!
Woo hoo--our first licensed driver!
Then I was honored to be his first date...lunch at Lupis pizza. I had actually been teasing him that I wanted to be his first date, and for Mothers day he gave me a gift card to Lupis with a cute note about how he wanted to take me out for his first date! I loved it!
Then I dropped him off at his friend Ethan's house who was helping me with a surprise party. He had arranged 18 holes of golf to get him out of the house for me!
These two are making fun of my request to take a picture by posing silly--goofy boys!
Waiting on the birthday boy:)
It was so fun having these beautiful girls in the house--so much better than the usual sweaty boys in gym shorts that hang out around here! ha ha!
It was so funny, we were all gathered around the front room, with my camera lense fixed on the door, when Connor surprised us and came in through the garage...augh...so the only picture I have of the big moment is a super fuzzy picture in the kitchen! Darn it!
He was totally completely surprised though!!
It was a success!
Happy 16th Birthday Connor Bradley!
