|We celebrated with Chinese takeout for dinner, then Pioneer Woman's chocolate sheet cake decorated with Skittles at the birthday boy's request|
As for gifts, well...we couldn't resist having a bit of fun. He's quite the comedian, our oldest boy...fond of telling tall tales to see if he can get away with fooling us...so his dad decided to return the favor on his birthday. Craig told him that we knew he'd really like a car for his 16th birthday but we thought he really deserved more than just a stinkin' car. We decided he needed wheels and wings!
Envision hopeful, excited expression at the mention of a car...even more hopeful, excited expression at the mention of more and wheels!
Envision puzzled and then suspicious expression upon hearing mention of wings...
The wheels in question were in the form of a really cool skateboard. The wings were in the form of a remote control fighter plane.
Envision rueful grin when he realized he'd been had.
Oh, don't worry about him...he actually has been begging for a pintail longboard for months and was also drooling over the planes so he wasn't really disappointed.

|First test drive on new wheels...no learner's permit required.|
Happy 16th. to our Mad Dog! We hope you had fun....
