Since we had all the family here this weekend (except Jason but it will be that way for another year) we decided to have Preston's 16th birthday a week early. He is a fan of the Food Network show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and had seen an episode where they featured a breakfast diner here in Phoenix. So we headed to downtown Phoenix for his "birthday breakfast."
After a wait in the heat, we had a great breakfast at Mike's Big Breakfast (1st Street and McKinley for you Arizonans), everything was a hit but the pancakes were voted the best. They use lots of real butter, so all the food tastes great and whether it is healthy is not even a question you ask.
Today we did the cake and presents thing and Raquel out did herself with her first homemade ice cream cake; everyone loved it. I have a had time believing that Preston is 16, or will be next Sunday, unfortunately for him, he will always be my baby now matter how big he gets.
