Cole Downs turned 15 on Saturday.
And like many things in this household, birthdays are looking a bit different with teenagers in the house.
Cole's birthday wish this year was for two things:
1. A keyboard. This kid dedicated himself for over a year to teaching himself piano (via Youtube) so we finally got him piano lessons last Christmas. And though we had opted up until this point to not get him a keyboard (because we don't want to give him a reason to spend more time in his bedroom and prefer him playing piano in the dining room), we finally caved in and got him a keyboard that Ross had picked out (actually, a bunch of family members all pitched in on it since it was spendy).
2. Permission to go to the movies with a group of male and female friends (with parental supervision).
And so that's just what we did...
I also picked him up a coffee from Starbucks (he loves coffee).
And a birthday doughnut. (he loves doughnuts).
And a card with a singing nun on it. (Who doesn't love singing nuns?)
Then he spent the entire morning playing his new keyboard downstairs on the kitchen table.
And then he took it upstairs to his bedroom and we didn't see him for the rest of the day.
Happy Birthday Coley-Woley (even if you're too old for that nickname).
Back with the rest of the photos tomorrow.
