Last year we celebrated with a weekend trip and castle stay in Rothenburg o.b. Tauber. Each hour on the 29th minute Husband had to open a small present no matter where we were in the city. The blog post turned out to be one of my most popular pins on Pinterest!
This year we kept things small, as in not having a ginormous blowout party, but his day was still choked full of family fun.
To help celebrate, Husband's parents were in Germany for two weeks. His mom and I collaborated in email on a risky plan to surprise him with something unexpected.
Husband's 30th birthday somewhere along all the planning took on a Bavarian theme. I love themes by the way; party themes, gift themes, teaching themes, Hey, a theme on themes! Ok, back on track.
Traditional Bavarian Attire
When it came time to open gifts, Husband unwrapped a puzzle. Among all the puzzle pieces were notecards each containing a letter. It was a puzzle within a puzzle! A word scramble if you will. Husband took about five minutes moving letters around. Finally he asked the important question, "Is it an English word or in Deutsch?" Bwhaha! It was a German word so that made the puzzle even trickier.
To Unscramble in English or To Unscramble in German?
A few more hints and Husband solved the puzzle:
Just 3 months shy of Oktoberfest 2014, Husband is officially ready! (When I asked for a picture he had already taken his blue gingham shirt off.) This is not my dirndl but I wanted to join in on the fun too!
Now Friends, Oktoberfest is 2-3 months away. Who is coming to visit this year?
