Friday Five: Birthday Edition

There's a birthday for an adult member of my family today. I will admit, I'm not very good at celebrating birthdays. Sadly, the adults in my life have suffered from this affliction. I do manage to rally for my son (now age 7). 

I could bore you with my own personal history of birthday laments which may have led to this attitude... but I won't (you're welcome). Instead I'd love to hear your birthday memories.

1) What is the first birthday you remember? 
2) Do you recall a favorite gift? 
3) Has anyone ever tried to surprise you for your birthday? Did it work? Was it fun? 
4) Do you have a favorite birthday dessert? 
5) Describe what would be your 'perfect birthday'.

 As always, let us know in comments if you play. For a complete how-to go here.
