When Life Gives You Lemons... Celebrating a #Quaranteen Birthday

Yesterday was Trevor's 14th birthday. Obviously, hosting a party was out of the question because of COVID-19, but it was really important to me that we make the day as special as possible. It had been twelve long weeks since Trevor had seen his friends, so we made plans to bring cupcakes and goodie bags to nearby friends' houses for a socially-distanced drive-by birthday celebration. Trevor had requested lemon cupcakes with lemon frosting, so we went with a lemon theme.

Specifically, our theme was: When life give you lemons... share them with friends. 

We contacted his friends to make sure they'd be home, then mapped out a route that would take us from house to house. We made seven stops. At each house, we handed off the cupcakes and goodie bags and backed away to a proper social distance for a quick chat. It was a wonderful way to celebrate and I'd definitely recommend it if your #Quaranteen has a birthday.  

Happy birthday, Trevor!


  1. Happy birthday, Trevor! I'm not surprised you came up with a creative way to celebrate in these crazy times!

  2. I didn't know it was Trevor's 14th birthday on June 8th when I commented on your newer post!!! When did that happen? Time sure flies, doesn't it? And I absolutely love your wonderful lemon themed drive-by birthday party, too. You are so clever and creative. HUGS to you and your family.

  3. Happy birthday Trevor!!! What a great idea for his birthday during these times!

  4. I'm glad he had a special birthday despite not being able to celebrate it with a bigger group of friends all at once! LOVE those lemon cupcakes! They look so yummy!
