Yesterday my son became a man. Dawson turned 18 years old. It was such a great day celebrating him and his transition from boy to man. And what did my new man want to do for his birthday?
He wanted to go to Incredible Pizza Company!!!
We all loaded up in the car and drove the two hours to the nearest Incredible Pizza. We spent the night eating and playing games. It was lots of fun!!!
Dawson wanted the entire Avatar: The Last Airbender series on dvd. We got him that and a Gamestop gift card. Oh, and a coffee mug. But there's an inside joke about that.
Taylar surprised him with an awesome headset for his XboxOne and a video game organizer.
Wesley, one of his best friends from Oklahoma came to spend the weekend with him. It was great to have one of our boys here.
I can't say enough how proud I am of the young man Dawson has become. He was such a stinker growing up (and still has a little orneriness in him) that it is just awesome to see how he has grown. It is hard for me to put into words how I feel about him. He is an awesome son and brother and we just love him so much. When Dawson was a little boy I used to always tell him that God gave him to me to bring laughter into my life. And he still does that every day. I am so proud of him and excited to see what he does in the future.
