Sweet Sixteen

I can't believe that Emily is 16 now! We have absolutely loved having her in our home for the past 4 years. I'm not excited for the dating years ahead of us. I will protect my baby sister from silly boys! Since this was a BIG birthday we wanted to make it special, so we surprised Emily and her friends with a night out on the town. Being chauffered around in a limo. Myself, our sister Susan, and my SIL Staci came along to make sure that the girls were on their best behavior. Really we just wanted to ride around in a limo too.

For dinner we went to Organ Stop Pizza. I worked there for 3 years during and after highschool. It's nice to go back every once in awhile to enjoy the food and music, but I don't miss smelling like onions every day.

These girls were lots of fun! Here they are outside OSP waiting for the limo. It was fun having everyone looking at us and wondering why we were so special.

Our next stop was Mesa Frozen Yogurt for desert. Yummy! Then our driver Russel drove us around while we did silly girl things. Our last stop was Fry's. We picked up some treats and popcorn for the girls to have while they watched Twilight at our house afterwards.

Good thing the ride was almost over. It started to get a little crazy in there! Happy Birthday Emily! We love and appreciate you!
