Hire an adorable food truck to visit school for a birthday surprise!
It's official. I am consistently behind on blogging. I'm not quite sure where my game went, but I still want to rewind a few months to share his birthday surprises!
We have a handful of traditions. One of them is decorating the stairs. The boys wake up to happy celebration first thing in the morning on their day. You can see my favorite year of decorated stairs HERE. That balloon maze was pretty cool!
This year I made a balloon garland.
These are made from those flexible animal-making balloons and tied off with bright twine.
He also found eleven orange balloons on his floor.
Orange is his favorite color.
Another tradition I've done for a few years is writing a birthday message
on their bathroom sink with dry erase markers.
The rest of his day was filled with little surprises...
treats in his backpack...
Cameron made a lil note from Basil to Titus.
It was super sweet.
We have "mailboxes" on our family planner wall.
I always save the boys' special mail and put it in their boxes on their birthday.
Titus' birthday was on a school day. It's fun to plan unexpected surprises at school to keep the day exciting! One year I hi-jacked Cameron's math class and another year a clown showed up to class. They never know what to expect!
This year, instead of bringing in a birthday dessert for the class, I hired this adorable lemonade truck to park in the school parking lot.
This truck (Sweet Concessions) and all the helpers were just the cutest!
The entire class ran out to the playground and spied a giant lemon at school!
They bounded over with big, happy smiles and lined up for fresh lemonade.
I usually get carried away with themes,
so I made (and bought!) extra LEMON treats to serve.
Lemon drop crinkle cookies, lemon Oreos, and classic lemon drop candies.
This was a simple recipe for chewy and fresh cookies.
