10 on the 10th – Birthdays!

10 on the 10th is hosted by Marsha in the Middle!

It’s that time again!! This month is all about birthdays!

What is your earliest birthday memory? I have a memory from my 2nd birthday- I know this because we were living in the townhouse we lived in before we moved to the house I grew up in at 3. My family was coming over for my party, and my mom and dad had decorated, with plates and the cake on the table. There was a record playing the Captain Zoom birthday song, which I loved and would play over and over. I was running in circles around the table singing along to the song. I still remember the words to that song! I should probably get the personalized version for Wyatt!

What is your favorite birthday tradition? We have a tradition that we started for Wyatt’s birthday that I love. We always visit a new nature center for his birthday and take a hike. As he has gotten older, we have had to widen our circle and even done weekends away to explore a new trail.

How do you like to celebrate birthdays? When I was younger I enjoyed big to-dos with my friends, but now that I am older I like a quiet family filled event. Maybe a simple meal, a backyard fire, a glass of wine.

What is the best birthday gift you ever received? I have loved and appreciated all of my gifts!

What is the best birthday gift you have ever given? Wyatt’s toy kitchen. He played with that like crazy for years.

If money were no object, what would be the very best way to celebrate your birthday? Oooo fun one! I would fly my entire family to Scotland to all stay in a castle and celebrate there. We would visit all the touristy places and non-touristy places and do all the Scottish things, including visiting a herd of adorable Highland cattle.

What is your favorite birthday treat? A cake from Astoria in Detroit. They are so delicious!

How long do you celebrate your birthday? Just that day. Unless I get that family trip to Scotland!

What is the best thing about your birthday? Sharing it with my loved ones.

What is your zodiac sign? I’m a scorpio….

This was a fun one! I would love to hear some of your answers!

  1. I am a Scorpio, too! I love that sign. LOL

    I remember early birthdays with my grandmother, aunts, and cousins…and the smell of coffee, which became a favorite scent.!

    These days I seem to celebrate all month (October), but I got an early start in September when my Prague son came to visit and we gathered family members around.

    Enjoy your month of birthdays!
