Yesterday was John and Jarrod's 16th birthday. Jeff surprised them by coming home from work before lunch with their first birthday gift in tow.
We got them each a new leather belt.
The boys chose Jalapeno's for lunch. We visited the restaurant in Pooler. We really enjoyed our lunch - stuffed ourselves silly. While we were at Jalapeno's Ashley called to wish them Happy Birthday. Then we headed to the Fun Park for Go-carting. We bought enough tickets for Jeff, John, and Jarrod to run a track; John, Jarrod and I to run another track; and John and Jarrod to run a track. We had a few sprinkles of light rain, threatened some more but nothing to cause closure of the track. All good until I got rear-ended coming into the pit when someone behind me didn't hit his brake.
After go-carting we headed to Richmond Hil and Jump n Jacks for some Laser Tag. We paid for two rounds for Jeff, John, and Jarrod (I sat out; that hit knocked me silly), but they ended up going three rounds. Huge blessing!
Next stop was Walmart for a couple more gifts. We got each boy a charger for their ipod that can charge anywhere - they've been using Jeff's charger or whatever they can find. We also got them new work boots. Both were able to get Size 12 boots - pretty darn nice boots too.
We headed home to put up some refrigerator stuff, and the boys opened their gifts from each other; Grandma Geer's card came yesterday too. While we were home Elizabeth called to wish them Happy Birthday.
We weren't done yet with their BirthDAY.
For dinner they chose Red Lobster. Which we enjoyed immensely. And once again stuffed ourselves.
After dinner we headed to the movies. We had picked up tickets before going to dinner and while the boys knew which theatre they didn't know which movie we were going to see. We watch an awesome movie. RED 2. It was a great choice. We all really like RED and while you never know what your going to get with sequels RED 2 was fantastically funny. Perfect end to a great birthDAY.
