On Friday, Jake and the kids created a Link: Legend of Zelda birthday experience. It was so fun that I had to share it!

First, I came downstairs to see this at the bottom:

Next to it was a heart cupcake.

Then, I had to “battle” each person to receive my next heart cupcake (If you’ve ever played Link, you know that when you defeat an enemy, you often get a heart to add to your life meter.).

Jake and each of the kids had a sword of some sort (a wand, a toy screwdriver, a wii remote, a wooden rod from a chair), and after I defeated them, I had to find a cupcake that they hid. It was really cute!

Then, at the end, I was awarded with a Triforce cake.

Oh, and I can’t forget Jake’s favorite part- I had to wear elf ears! (Back story: Jake is convinced I come from a mixed line of hobbits, dwarfs, and elves because I have pointy-ish ears, have big feet for my height, and my dad is barrel-chested with a thick beard. But whatever.)

So fun! Jake gets 50 extra bonus points because I jokingly said that I wanted a Link cake the night before my birthday. Apparently he schemed up this idea and went to the grocery store without me knowing that he was gone. I know, how does that happen? Anyway, it was so much fun, and I loved that the kids got to play too. Asante commented that it turned from being a boring birthday (“because you just woke up with us and got us breakfast and that was it”) to being the best birthday ever.

Here’s to my last year before the big 30!
