Happy Birthday Lars!
Now the entire Wagoner Family has celebrated a “Happy Birthday” while living in Spain. Now that he is 11, he isn’t a little kid. It was a school day for Lars, so we celebrated after school was out at 2pm. He requested Teriyaki Steak for Lunch along with a American Cake. Luckily we have some cake mix and frosting from the U.S., so he was a happy camper. The pièce de résistance was his gift. Alan is taking him with VIP passes to a professional Fútbol Game this weekend!
The fun is all in giving the gift.
It is Wagoner Family tradition to give gifts of “experience” rather than focus on material items. In addition we like to have fun with it and give the gifts in a unique way. We figured Lars is getting older, so the old scavenger hunt to the gift wasn’t going to be as exciting. Time to step it up a notch and make it a little bit more challenging. Alan created a paper with the logos from the Fútbol teams playing (photo below). He then cut up the paper into puzzle pieces. It was up to Lars to put the puzzle together and figure out his gift. Lars is a Real Madrid C.F. Fan, but Malaga C.F. is close to home. You bet there will be a post on this experience!
WOW! Do you think he was excited or what?
