Last Monday, Kayo celebrated his thirtieth birthday, so the girls and I did the best we could to make it real special.
I wanted his day to start out with a big treat so I prepared him a peach waffle breakfast at home. We haven’t made waffles at home in a while so we quite missed it. I was reminded of our first year as newlyweds when we did waffle brunch in our tiny apartment during the weekends. Summer really enjoyed watching them get cooked too.
And what’s a birthday without buntings? I admit I’m a little obsessed with them, so a few days before, I stringed birthday buntings using some washi tape and construction paper. And instead of writing him a letter, I decided to make thirty cards where I wrote thirty reasons why we love him and think he’s awesome. I made sure to make it fun but also meaningful and something he would appreciate. The numbered envelopes on the wall served as a nice decor too!
Of course we also gave him gifts, and my favorite was the 3D cardboard letter K that came from Summer and Emma. It was a little project we worked on last week and the entire thing was made out of scratch (Wait for the DIY tutorial I’ll be posting in a few days!).
We spent the rest of the day at home, doing absolutely nothing together, which is one of Kayo’s favorite things.
I love birthdays and it’s always a pleasure to make people happy on their special day. Whether you throw a big, extravagant party, or just a simple homemade breakfast, birthdays must be celebrated with much love and cheer. I’m glad that yesterday, I and the girls succeeded in doing just that for Kayo.
It was our little way of saying thank you to him for being the best husband and father we could ever ask for!
