    On my 30th birthday, my husband had me “kidnapped” by friends, blindfolded & brought to BBY Village Museum which he had rented out. (It was March & the village was closed.) He was there waiting with 40 of our friends & family, had bought me a ring and proposed again after 10 years of marriage. We renewed our vows in the little church & then had everyone back to the hous for a party. BEST birthday ever!

    My best Birthday memory is when I was ten and my Mum, Grampa & brother were returning from the grocery with all the fixins for the strawberry short cake Mum made me every year. My Mum and Grampa were in the front seat, Grampa had his arm around the groceries that were in a paper bag and my brother was in the backseat. All the car windows down on that hot summer day and my Grampa flicked his cigarette butt out the window. Shortly after he said to my Mum, it’s really getting hot and Mum looked over and the bag of groceries was on fire…quietly in the back seat my brother had been blowing on the flames trying to put it out!

  74. SelenaMonday, August 4th, 2014 — 12:11pm PDT

    My favorite birthday memory would be when my family was still a family. Everyone got along, & the house was full of laughter. Birthday gatherings were huge. Now, the only time anyone ever sees each-other is at funerals. Very sad to see such dysfunction, but I will never forget the good times at that last happy birthday party. I would LOVE to go to Capilano Suspension Bridge with my son & his dad!! I don’t dwell on the negative. Creating new happy memories is all I strive for. 🙂

  75. DebMonday, August 4th, 2014 — 12:52pm PDT

    best memory was my 8th B’day, I had a cake with a Carousel on the top, it was beautiful, I loved the stripes of the big top and all the horses, but when we lit the candles, the big top went up in flames… poof! The cake survived, but the flames were pretty scary to all us kids.

  76. LauraTuesday, August 5th, 2014 — 10:57am PDT

    For my 29th, my best friend and I decided to go to New York! That has to be my most memorable birthday.
