We went on our first Family Cruise on the P And O Cruise Pacific Jewel, for our second son’s 21st Birthday Celebration. It was for only four nights but we loved it! He is not a kid that likes a big fuss so I knew that I couldn’t organise a Party for him – yet I did let the Cruise ship know about his Birthday and they gave him a cake at dinner time and sang Happy Birthday to him!
Over the weekend we got to celebrate our son’s Cameron 13th Birthday….how did the years go by so very fast? We now have another teenager in the mix of our boys, smelly emotional roller coasting times ahead.
Happy 13th Birthday Cameron
Every year our boys get to pick what they would like for their Birthday Dinner and Birthday Cake – every year Cameron wants Lasagna. Now that we are all grain and sugar free this year birthday dinner was going to be a challenge so David and I made the decision to forget our eating style and go with the flow. Big mistake ~ we both woke up the next day with headaches 🙂
We are a bit slack! We have never had a birthday Party for Cameron. Not sure how that happened…maybe cause he is our fourth son and we kinda got too busy…and maybe cause of the time of the year. Its crazy leading up to Christmas and we just never seem to got around to it.
But he asked and we gave. He really wanted about 10 friends from school to his party. Mind you not every one came, and no-one actually let me know who was coming/who wasn’t!!!
He did have a great time, even though his brothers upset him. He got some great gifts, had yummy cake, and lots of food that we normally don’t have. Wished the party went a bit longer, and that they had something more to do…maybe next time I will hire a party planner?
Since we started our “New Life on the Road Journey” we have had many Birthday Celebrations together. While on the Road Birthdays are the same for our family – only we now have added a new tradition to the day.
Our family have had a few Kids Birthday Parties over the years, but mostly we celebrate together as one unit. We used to do big Fancy children’s Birthday Cakes but now we keep it simple.
