Actually he still is - just that the jeans and converse are much, much bigger these days!!
Oh yes today - big son turned 17 - the photo above was taken when he was a few months old - we've decided he was probably plotting something - probably knowing him his next meal!!
After a birthday breakfast and a pressie and card opening session, we headed out as a family for a roast dinner and then onto Southwold. The wind was rather strong so the walk was much shorter than hoped but we made it to the Pier and spent time having fun.
Air hockey - we played in various combinations - the boys gaming skills showed through and they were far better than us adults.
Of course if you play on the Pier then you have to play the Penny Falls - he made his money last for ages.
Home then for cake;
The usual chocolate cake - a family favourite - decorated with a Brains from Thunderbirds in honour of Big Sons dressing up day in December and some special candles. These look like normal ones but are impossible to blow out!!
My daft boy in his new sunglasses - obviously what you need indoors on a dull February day!! Oh how much smoke those candles produced - am glad I just bought one pack of 10 rather than the 17 we really needed!!
Of course he's hungry again - so the grill has just gone on with cheese on toast to cook!
See you soon
