Happy Birthday Gerald!

Yesterday we spent the day celebrating our son Gerald’s 15th birthday! His father & I had so much fun planning & prepping to make sure he had a memorable one. Especially since we just moved & he hasn’t had a chance to make new friends to celebrate with.
Dad went the day before to The Cheesecake Factory in Pleasanton to pick up Gerald’s dream cake, a Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake. I hid it in the back of the fridge in plastic bags so he couldn’t see it! Then we taped balloons & streamers to his door for a waterfall effect when he opened it in the morning. It worked & was so fun to watch them tumble on his sleepy face!
He opened his gift from us, a new HP Laptop. We wanted him to start off his sophomore year with the best tools to help him achieve. He’s been asking for one since last year. Besides, his honor roll grades from last year helped seal the deal.
We then ventured to our local Starbucks for birthday Frappuccinos and a latte for me.
It so happened that his registration for HS was today too, so our afternoon was spent at the school getting his classes. I told you it was fun! LOL!!
Birthday haircut at our local barbershop after lunch then homeward bound to eat some cake! The best part for us was seeing how happy he was & the hugs we received in thanks! We are very lucky parents to have such a sweet & grateful kid as our son.
I’m so proud of what he has accomplished & the goals he has for himself in the near future!
You’re a true gem Gerald, I’m so happy you came to live with us and I’m in awe as I watch you grow. Have a wonderful birthday year son (driver’s permit coming up in 6 months!).
We love you!
