It's summer again. Which means company, holidays, eating, swimming and most of all celebrating our oldest son. Fifteen years ago he made us parents for the very first time! I'm so proud of the young man he's becoming!
This morning I expected to have to wait hours to see his little 15 year old face peering bleary eyed at me from the basement BUT ... he bounded up the stairs dressed and in search of presents before 8am!!! What?! He has inherited the "birthday-excitement-gene" from his mother it seems. I hope he wasn't disappointed. This year there was no pony (again) but he seemed okay with that. Instead Kev put together a list of old cars for sale on Craig's list and gave him cash and a promise of help of work. I promise not to help, seems fair! We also gave him an enormous case of Dr. Pepper which he quickly horded, candy and some movies. AND this is the big one, I am forgoing my morning yoga DVD so he can play his stupid shooting game on the PS3. Love. It's an amazing thing!
What do you do on your 15th birthday you may ask? Well your mom makes a bunch of your friends food, feeds them ice cream cake and then you head into the bush to shoot paintballs at each other - true story. How fun is that? (nope, I don't see it either but I'm not a teenage boy) See why we don't invite girls to these things?
Happy Birthday Levi Peter Jay! We are proud ot have you as our eldest son and are excited to see what another year holds!
