Kids Celebrating Dad’s B-Day

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 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…

Oh, the calamity! Dad was immediately attacked by four little kids giving their biggest bear hugs.

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!

I'm pretty sure your family couldn't be any cuter! It's hard to tell who is happier in the pics, Joe or the kids!

I love your family. I've been reading your blog for awhile now and the enthusiasm and passion you and your husband and littles seem to have about life is infectious! Scrolled through with a giant smile on my face and got tears in my eyes at the bear hug birthday surprise. So sweet. Thanks for sharing the happy moment of your awesome life with us! :)

Where did you happen to find the custom washer boards? Perfect "house warming gift" for some of our Aggie friends.
