Happy 16th and a fun day it was

Me and my 6 foot baby

Nate is the prince for the day and totally spoiled

The gang: Nate, Mark, Trent, Matt and Issaac
(and i must say i had to force the boys to pose
for this picture explaining the whole time why
I wanted a picture)

It was 16 years today that this miracle came into our lives. Many memories and a lot of exciting chapters, with this next one being a biggy....driving, dating and more independence. It was so important to me that this was a fun and memorable day, not only for Nate, but me as his sappy mom. The festivities started off at 12:02 am with the midnight showing of Transformers 2. A very crowded movie, but provided much debate among the guys. Followed by a day of sleeping. Then pizza for dinner, a delectable chocolate cake and an evening at Main Event. We played a game of bowling....totally fun as we were all horrible. Then the guys had a round of laser tag and I was totally wiped and ready for bed.

It is ironic that Steve and his car were taken out today (being Nate's birthday). Steve had surgery on Nathaniel's 13th birthday. When he turned 14 we were broke and sick. Last year on the 15th, Nate was away at scout camp. He has lost out on this being a special day and for a week, we joked that it the cycle of bad karma happening on his day was done....and then the early AM call home came.
A trailblazer that was in a lane to go straight, decided he wanted to turn and turned right into Steve and his small Kia. Lets say the Trailblazer won and as Steve describes it..."the guy got out and in my face saying the I got in his way." Thank goodness it appears the insurance adjuster has some common sense and is ruling mr trailblazer at fault. The extent of damage is not yet known, but Steve was not physically hurt.
