Sweet 16

Sweet 16 has come and will be here for another year, but the celebrations have ended....  Erin had friends over last night for the big bash - well small bash.  It's a busy time of year and a few of their group couldn't come, but they had so much fun.  It's so great to spend some time with these girls (and guy) who spend lots of time together at school and we don't get to see too often at home.  What a great bunch of teenagers!

We had dinner, played some volleyball and then they were in for a big surprise when the limo pulled up!  I "won" this limo ride and didn't know what to do with it.  After talking with the lady who had donated it to the fundraiser where I "happened upon it", we came up with a plan for the birthday girl.  The kids were thrilled and totally surprised! They took 140 photos in the limo, so I've chosen just a few for your enjoyment.

 Found some "Angels"  in there.

Digging in to the empty mini-bar

 They drove downtown for ice cream and hung out down at the beach for awhile before the return trip.

 Jacob got in on the action on the ride home and took control of the sound system, glad I wasn't in there!

Jacob also put together an awesome rendition of "Minute to Win It" which made for some hilarious entertainment.  Uncle Cam doing "Junk in the Trunk" (trying to empty the ping pong balls out of the kleenex box strapped to his back).

Of course Erin was all over baking the birthday cake! This was her best creation yet!  And tasted amazing!

Happy Sweet 16 My Girl!

So fun - I love that you had the limo ride for them! It looked like a really great night.

And the cake was awesome. Erin has some serious talent!
