We had a great 16th birthday for Hayley. It started out, as usual, with the "birthday fairy" table in the morning, including presents and Bismark donuts. Then, we went to get pedicures, opened her first checking account and later, headed to a big party at Martha Lake complete with hot dogs on the grill, swimming (even though it was not even 70 degrees!), and cupcakes and presents. Afterward we headed back to our house for s'mores, movies, ice cream and a big sleepover party. Pancakes in the morning and then lunch with the Bedells at The Rock followed. We then came back and reminisced over old home movies, watching the Bedells and Gordon kids growing up together. It was a great couple of days! Hayley is driving with a permit now, and soon to get her license. Scary! Can't believe my baby girl is 16!
