Valentine Birthday

Feb 15, 2008 | Birthdays, Celebrate | 8 comments

So through the years I have tried to throw a Surprise Party for Jase somehow, and successfully thrown one each year that we’ve been married. After much discussion with Jase, I decided Not to throw him a surprise party, but I needed to surprise him somehow.

So first we went golfing at the Kaneohe Bay Golf course, which was fun and short. It perfectly fit into our time schedule. We loved it.

Then after coming home and taking a mid-day nap, I sent Jase on a Scavenger hunt. Thanks to a few of our friends he ran all around Laie. And he ended up in the circle on Hale La’a. With Jackie’s help, I set up a table, chairs, and a nice dinner…that my momma taught me how to cook. ENCHILLADAS!! Which was also the first dinner that Jase ate at our house when we were dating…anyways, He loved it. I must say that he was embarrassed sitting there in the middle of the circle and having lots of people stare and honk at us. Also while sitting there, some kids that were selling a singing tellagram came and gave me carnations and sang,”when I get older, loosing my hair…” It was so cute and chereographed, they did a great job. I loved it, I loved that I surprised him once again and that people will be talking to him about this special dinner for weeks to come.

And when we finally arrived home, Jase had a surprise for me. A beautiful Yellow rose with gummy mini frogs as the base in the vase. What a special day.

Well that was our special Birthday & Valentine’s Day, I hope yours was as special as ours!

    How awesome! I’m so impressed with how creative you two are. I think the table out there for all to see rocks! You are inspiring me to TRY and think of something cool for Troy’s big day. If it weren’t freaking freezing here I’d probably just copy your idea.
