“mom, that was the best birthday ever!!!” ❤️who knew being in quarantine cooper would say that 🤣 the thing is, we aren’t big on paying outrageous fees for big birthdays, so maybe that’s something our kids have gotten used to, and he wasn’t going to have some big birthday party anyway! 🥳 we always celebrate, usually with close friends and families, some years are bigger than others, but it really just depends what they want to do and what our busy ball schedules look like! 🧐
but this year was definitely a bit different. 😔he’s not in school to see his friends, really can’t even play with his friends except riding bikes outdoors 🚲, can’t see any of his family, go out to eat at his favorite restaurant, or go to maggie moos or la michoacana for his favorite ice cream! 😢 and tonight he was supposed to be playing ball!
i put out a sign in the yard (p.s. only $12.50 with my michaels coupon!)! 🙌🏼 his teacher planned a special zoom and the kids made birthday hats and brought a dessert and celebrated with him! we organized a neighborhood ride by!!! check it out below and in my stories! ❤️friends made signs, drove by, made homemade cards, decorated their bikes, and he was totally surprised!! 😍our community is committed to making every child’s birthday special during this time!!! 🎉and finished the night with our own ice cream sundae bar, full of all his favorite toppings (and ours 🤣) just like at maggie moos! 🍨
while we can’t wait to get back to some kind of normal, more so, play ball 🤣 and enjoy the summer, we are taking the lemons life is giving us, and making the best dang lemonade! 🍋
happy birthday baby boy!!! we love you to the moon and back and infinity and beyond!!!
