quarantine birthday.


IMG_6330.JPGMy little guy turned 11 this month – a birthday he had been looking forward to for a bit, since it was his golden birthday as well. We had originally planned to forgo a party and have a few of his friends over for a video game night, and go out of town to skateboard – but since there is a shelter in place in order, that was out of the question.

I decorated the house, set up a scavenger hunt for gifts, and that afternoon I organized a surprise birthday parade for him. All of his close friends decorated their cars, lined up and drove by all at once, to wish him a happy birthday. It was very heartwarming, and he was very surprised!

I created an “eleven” birthday banner – and got some gold balloons from target to blow up. We made eleven cupcakes and individually wrapped them and after the parade, the cars lined up down the block and i handed everyone cupcakes. It was a bummer we couldn’t have a gathering, but we made what we could out of what we were given and are so thankful everyone came together to make it happen! IMG_6692.JPG
