So it seemed only appropriate that any and all birthday decor should revolve around driving. Brandon woke up to a little highway, complete with cars and road signs, leading him up to the kitchen where later in the day we had a celebratory birthday dinner and presents.
The day after the birthday: IT'S OFFICIAL!!!
The day before the birthday:
Rebekah's and Julianne's first dates after they turned 16 were with their Dad. Which meant that I got the opportunity to go on a date with Brandon. Seeing as his birthday was on a Sunday, and his schedule is mighty packed with gymnastics workouts most every other day, we decided to go out the night before. I took him to dinner at Marie Callendars and then to the nearby aquarium where we got fish pedicures. Have you ever had a bunch of fish nibble on your toes? It's a mighty strange feeling! Not quite ticklish...but sort of? We laughed a lot.
