Donald Trump Jr. Keeps It Simple As He Celebrates The Big 4-0

It really is the simple things in life that bring the most pleasure, and that becomes more and more true with each year that you check off of the calendar. Sure, fancy things are nice and all, and there’s definitely a time and a place for them when the urge to spoil yourself rears its head, but some of the happier moments you’ll find will come from things that can’t be bought and paid for. When you’re surrounded by loved ones and celebrating a special occasion, it really doesn’t matter where you are. Of course, a little ice cream cake never hurts.

As the Daily Mail shares, that’s just one of a number of takeaways from a slew of photos that Donald Trump Jr. recently shared on social media. He’s obviously a man of means - and able to afford whatever the heck he wants as a result - but his photos revolved around the things that mean the most to him: his family. Don Jr. turned 40 on New Year’s Eve, and the oldest of President Donald Trump’s children celebrated the big day at Mar-A-Lago with his father, his siblings, and his children.

Alright, so Mar-A-Lago resort doesn’t exactly fit into the category of simpler things, but the photos certainly did. He shared a number of snaps of him and his father when he was just an infant, and the future POTUS was decked out in garb that was representative of the late 1970s. There were cardigan sweaters and short robes, but most importantly, it was a proud father and his baby boy.

“A lot has changed in the past 40 years. A bit of reflection on my 40th birthday from the early days,” wrote Don Jr. “I look forward to celebrating another birthday and another New Year with @realdonaldtrump and all the other Trumps tonight.”

In addition to getting all nostalgic, Don Jr. was treated to a little birthday tradition - courtesy of his daughter Chloe. She apparently likes to lay on her dad’s stomach and sing the birthday song over and over again.

“Thanks Chloe for making my 40th bday special. This is a rather unique rendition of Happy Birthday but I’ll take it,” he wrote.

He would also share some president day photos of himself and his dad, as well as some snaps of him playing golf with his children. There was also another memorable pic of himself and his sister Ivanka. For that photo, he was absolutely beaming in front of a Carvel ice cream cake that generally retails for about $20. We’re going to go out on a limb and assume the birthday boy’s cake was a special delivery to the luxury resort.

“Just hanging out with #POTUS on #NYE!!!” Trump Jr. shared. “Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous #newyear #2018.”

All in all, it looks like Don Jr. had quite the memorable day. Granted, he was at what can be best described as a luxurious resort that’s the playground of those with the means to afford it, but the biggest smiles of the day were reserved for the simpler things that came up during the day: hanging with his kids, posing with his dad, or getting ready to devour an ice cream cake. There’s a ton to be said for knowing how to enjoy life’s little pleasures, and Trump Jr. seems to have figured out that secret to success as well.
