My family has a tradition that prevents us from celebrating birthdays in public venues like restaurants. I don’t know when or why we started it, but it’s been going on for years. Seeing as how I hit 40 this week, I thought I’d give you a behind-the-scenes peek at Score family birthday shenanigans!

The kids pretend they hate the tradition, but their cute little voices really add a new level of horrificness to the song. P.S. That’s Mr. Lucy behind the paper plate ?

    Happy 40th birthday-on-a-beach, Miss Lucy! I’m celebrating my 60th birthday-on-a-beach in two weeks; Maryland mud birthdays have gotten old.
    I’m a newish reader of yours and much appreciate the humor in your stories. The free Christmas story was a wonderful present to share! I read it aloud to my hubs, snuggled next to the tree Christmas night. We’re learning to empty-nest Christmas and this could be a great new tradition.
    Happy beaching!
