Birthday Boy

Last week, my son turned the big 1-6. Wow! Where has the time gone? I say this every single year.  This is the year he will become an official driver. Yikes! We will not even go there. Not yet anyway....

On his actual birthday, we had a small celebration with just the four of us. (That would include the dog.) I prepared a dinner that he chose (grilled pork chops, cheesy potatoes, corn) and a cookie cake. He opened gifts, including this one:

This is an idea I "pinned" on Pinterest. (I call that site internet crack. lol!) Ryan took one look at it and said, "Did you see this on Pinterest?" Okay, smartypants! He knows me too well! ;-)

Here is a pic of him with his favorite canine:

Isn't that sweet? Our dog is so spoiled! So spoiled that we were almost inclined to give him some cookie. I mean, how difficult is it to say no to a face like this?

My son's birthday celebration stretched into the weekend with extended family. On my hubby's side, there are many birthdays in May. Ryan was able to celebrate with his cousin at a local restaurant. There were around 25 of us, so it was a fun time!

We have some handsome boys in our family! :-)

We then celebrated at mamaw's house on Memorial Day. We had yet another cookie cake and he opened more gifts.

We had a fun weekend celebrating with the most amazing 16 year-old on the planet! We love you more than words can say! xoxo's
