One last surprise at the end of the night: a slideshow. I think there were almost tears! Almost!
Watch the slideshow here!
A few months before my dad’s birthday, a friend of mine mentioned that she and her sister got their mom a Mercedes Benz for her 60th birthday. I felt so defeated. Was that what his friends were getting from their kids? Would whatever we planned be a huge letdown? Could we come up with a night that was meaningful and memorable?
In the end, we just thought of the things my dad really loves…spending time with my mom, our family, reliving old memories (slideshow), adventure (helicopter ride), amazing views (dinner on the beach) and put together a night involving all of those elements. I think he really had a memorable night and we were so happy to see him take it all in. Happy Birthday Appa!
Have you had to plan a milestone birthday for anyone special? Any ideas? My mom’s is coming up in a few years…
