Big C turns the Big 1-6

Yeah, I am a WEE bit late posting this........ like several months late. Better late than never right?

PB had been on the hunt for a good car for Big C, as his 16th birthday was coming up. After some checking around, he got Big C this cherry red Mustang. PB and I drove up to Bellingham to grab it, brought it home and parked it in the driveway without Big C knowing. When we got it home, it was late, but of course PB and Big C had to take it out for a spin.

Trying to get both of them to look at the camera and smile at the same time is exhausting! This was the best shot.

The next day PB took him to get tabs, change over the title, get insurance and look at extra goodies to add to the interior.

Big C had an ear to ear grin ALL day. He was so excited about his car!

He still had a few months to go before he turned 16, and could take his drivers test. Well, his birthday FINALLY came around, and after a party at his mom's house, cake, presents, food, family, blah blah blah....

This was the best one out of 5 shots. Big C did not want to smile for the camera........

Big C and his uncle Tracy

Mmmm. Cake.

PB, Big C and his mom

Lil C and Big C
They were being such ham bones for this shot. They were trying to be all tough....... all I see are handsome young men.

I put together a collage of some baseball photos I had taken of Big C over the past year. His mom took it around to all the coaches and players on his team and got them to sign it. She surprised him with it on his birthday!

Here are all the kids from the party. Friends and family.

You should have seen the out takes......

After a few calls, an appointment was set for 07/16/12. Big C and PB headed out to the DMV. Here they are impatiently waiting for Big C's number to be called.

Here he is, getting his photo taken. Then someone from behind the counter yelled at PB for taking this picture.

But it was all worth it. To see this HUGE (heavy sarcasm here) smile from one very excited boy who is now a member of the driving club!

Congrats Big C! Now drive carefully!
