Happy Birthday Mom | GBGV | Mischief Monday

2013 July 29

Happy birthday to my mom today!!!  I can’t tell you how old she is because she says I can’t count that high. That doesn’t matter! I thought long and hard about what to get her this year and I came up with a super duper surprise!

GBGV heading to party

My mom loves ice cream, frozen yogurt, frozen custard, and chocolate. I had the absolutely brilliant idea to get her a Culvers Cookies & Cream Concrete Cake! I can’t share with her since it has chocolate but that is okay, I don’t share my birthday cake with her either. I now had the issue of how to get that cake to my house. It is was too hot outside for me to walk the six miles round trip. That cake would be so melted if I did that. I decided I better drive.

Humans are so fixated on that green paper stuff with numbers on it, aka, money. Before I left I helped myself to some green paper from Mom’s wallet and then I got my driver’s license and headed out in the car to Culvers. Since I was picking up a birthday cake, I decided to wear a party hat on my mission.

GBGV getting cash

Darn restaurants in the US don’t allow dogs, so I had to use the drive thru to get the cake. What is up with that “no dogs in restaurant policy” anyway? Some humans I have seen have more hair on their bodies than some of my dog friends and they are allowed in! Grrrr…

I pulled up to the menu/talking box, and the lady gave me a hard time about me being a dog and not having any money. Seriously, if I can drive myself to the place, don’t you think I would be smart enough to bring money? Heavens, I have even done modeling and made my own money!

GBGV ordering bubble

After barking at the woman in the talking box for a bit she finally accepted my order and told me to pull forward to the next window to pay. I paid, and then she told me that I would need to wait a few minutes for them to get the cake, so I should park and wait on the patio.

GBGV pulling forward

The woman delivered the cake to me on the patio a few minutes later and I could see just by looking at it that Mom would be so happy! What could be better than hanging out with Katie and I, and eating one of her favorite cakes?

GBGV got the cake

Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you and I hope your day is pawsome!

    I have never heard of Culvers but if you went to that much trouble to get that cake for you Mom it must be super yummy. Happy Birthday to your Mom!

    Well here in Hawaii it’s still your momma’s birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
    Culver’s is one of our most favorite custard places in the WHOLE world. Don’t have any here, but we do have shave ice!! It was very thoughtful of you to plan that special birthday surprise.

      Culvers seems to just be in a limited amount of areas, but my mom does love it. Thanks for the Hawaiian birthday wishes!

    Happy birthday to your mum! That cake sounds amazing, do you think a small piece would fit in the post for your friends across the ocean? BOL

      Mom says you only need a small piece as it is really rich. I could mail some but it would be melted when it arrives…do you have a straw?

    Wow! What a birthday surprise! I’m not letting my dogs read this because I don’t want them getting any ideas about driving. Jeffie does have a drivers license, but I’m pretty sure there’d be a big fight about whose driving, where to sit, how to get where they’re going….

      I pretty much just drive and go alone. Katie does not want to ride with me, says I am nuts and it would be dangerous ;)

    Oh Emma, how thoughtful and sweet to get your Mom that cake, and to even how to figure out how to get it by yourself so you could surprise her! I bet she enjoyed it , and I hope she had a wonderful birthday. Spending it with her two girls and that yummy cake, I can’t see how she wouldn’t have! :)

      She had a great day and she will be eating the cake for the next few days!

    Happy birthday to your mummy, you are such a sweetie :-)

    OMD I can’t believe I missed telling your mama Happy Birthday and how awesome you are to go get her a cake yourself!

      That is ok, it helps her stretch out the birthday thing a bit longer :)

      Mom says thank you :) She had made us some doggy blueberry ice cream snacks, so we did not suffer at all!
