It’s Saturday, a week after Tyler’s birthday, and I’m finally posting all the pics I took.

Friday  night, I took Ty to his cousin Katelyn’s Sweet 16 party.  Her and 13 friends, including Ty went to Laser tag at this cool place downtown.  They played 2 rounds and ate pizza.  From there, we all carpooled back to Kate’s house for cake and a bonfire.  Ty was a real sport being a total stranger to everyone but the birthday girl.  By the end of the night, he looked like he’d been friends with everyone for-like-ever =)  He’s not shy.  It was a great birthday party.  Ty and I got home at 2:30 Saturday morning.

We slept in til 9 and got ready for his celebration.  We picked up Brennan and Dee (kids and all) and headed to Koi where we ate Chinese buffet and all-you-can-eat sushi.  Mom and Gords met us there.  We sang Happy Birthday to Ty and presented him his cake:

Ty, Dee and Brennan.  Three happy, full teenagers.

We then headed to the hotel to check in.  The boys relaxed in the room and even went for a swim.

Around 7 pm Danny took Ty, Dee, and Brennan to the mall to play at Dave and Buster’s.  I stayed at the hotel with Bubbs, Nate, and Lai to wait for Gords to take them home.  He dropped me off at the mall to meet up with the guys.  When I arrived they were playing pool waiting for a lane to open up for some bowling.  Presley showed up (he got off at 7:00 from his job at McDees).

They had a blast.

After 3 games, we went back to the hotel for the night.  I know they didn’t get any sleep, like any typical teenage sleepover.  Danny and I had a room directly beneath them to keep an eye on things.

I got up at 7:30 for breakfast (the hotel had a full spread for breakfast that day).  We woke them up(they looked like they just went to bed).  They ate their all-you-can-eat eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, and fruit half-asleep.  They were exhausted from all the fun they had.

It was the best 16th birthday party I’ve ever been to!  Yes, it even topped mine.   😉

Ty was so grateful.  We just thank God that we were able to splurge on him.  It was awesome to spoil him for one day….

Next one’s in 6 years.  It’ll be here before you know it.  Ay, dios mio, the days fly by….
