I never ask questions under my screen name but I thought I'd go ahead with this one..
Our oldest turns 16 on Friday. He didn't want a party, no friends over, just something with us. So he picked his favorite restaurant, and that's what he wants to do after school. Saturday we're taking him out to the local off road park with his dirt bike, but that's not a b-day present, just something he wants to do....
He already has his own vehicle, he worked very hard helping my Hubby rebuild the engine, and He has his permit, so he will be taking his drivers test on Wed the 5th of Sept. I'm taking him out of school for that. So that's part of his present.
I ordered him a small cake at a local bakery that makes amazing cakes.
It's an 8 inch half mint chocolate, and half chocolate fox dirt bike cake. He's going to love it. But I thought I would take it to the restaurant and drop it off, and ask if they would bring it out, and sing to him. I know it will embarrass him, but he's a good sport, and I think he'll get a good laugh out of it.
We're then giving him his first cell phone, he's going to love it... He's worked so hard in school, and has helped his Dad so much working in the shop. He's also had a great attitude, so we felt this would be a great present. He has no idea he's getting one.
So, do you think that's enough? I know it doesn't seem like much, but it's all I could think of..
Thanks for reading!

It all sounds great to me too. Make sure before you hand over that cell phone that he knows what will happen if you find out he's using it while driving tho! Have a great celebration! :)
