You know when you have that sweet little babe in your arms and you dream of their future… a future that seems so far away. Let me tell you it passes quickly. In a blink of an our second child has turned 16. Oh, but his dimples remain strong and his curls are still amazing…
He had a great day… best birthday every he said.
It started with a 7:15 wake up call so that he could take his driver’s test. He passed and then posed with his Dad’s car that he hopes to inherit in the near future. I don’t know why as it is my least favorite car.
We opened presents and then he drove all by himself for the first time to have lunch with my parents. We went over directions because, well, that will be his biggest hurdle in driving. Directional challenged… but he made it and enjoyed talking about what was going on in his life and just visiting with them.
Next he wanted to go on a hike. He is so easy to please. Doesn’t need any big parties, thrills or presents. Time spent is the best gift. Now hikes with him are never boring. He hikes off the trails, climbs places that don’t seem possible and treks though water. We went to a nearby place that has cliffs, ledges, caves, and waterfalls. We spent about 2 hours exploring. I’ll share some pictures as the week goes on as it was a gorgeous place.
We ended the day with dinner at Cracker Barrel and then homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Pie.
Hard to believe he is 16. Sweetest boy you’ll ever meet. Happy birthday Mr. C.
