I LOVE this age, where the kids get a kick out of planning various celebrations. Last Thursday after school, the kids and I wanted to surprise Joe for his birthday.
We decorated the house…
…bought him a new cruiser bike to ride around with us
…bought him some gourmet cupcakes and decorated his with a “34”…
…then hid behind the couch, waiting for Dad to come home, so we could surprise him with our party noise makers…
SURPRISE, DAD!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Oh, the calamity! Dad was immediately attacked by four little kids giving their biggest bear hugs.
So proud of their handiwork.
Happy 34, Babe! (Sav, Ben, Joe, Ethan, Drew)
Opening up some presents… custom made washer boards! Gig ‘Em!
…singing “Happy Birthday” to the old man…
…and blowing out the candles!
We love you, Dad! Happy Birthday! We had a blast partying with you.
We celebrated a little early with the kids, because Papa and Granna gave us an amazing anniversary gift---a weekend without kids! AWESOME.
Stay tuned to see how Mom and Dad played while the kids were away!
