MEMPHIS, Tenn. — While many special events have been canceled because of COVID-19 some people have discovered unique ways to celebrate safely.
Three siblings, who happen to be triplets, got to celebrate their Sweet Sixteen in a unique way.
Kelsey, Caleb and Cameron Morgan celebrated their birthday over the weekend.
"Cherish the moments you have,” Cameron Morgan said. “You never know what is going to happen. Like this coronavirus. We didn't know this was going to happen."
As the triplets saw schools and businesses across the country close because of COVID-19, the last thing on their minds was a birthday bash.
"We just came through the front, and I was like oh, my goodness,” Kelsey Morgan said. “The whole day was a surprise."
“Having my friends over,” Caleb Morgan said. “I want to see them, but I can’t. It’s crazy.”
But their mother, Candace Morgan, made their birthday one to remember by throwing a social distancing party Saturday and encouraging friends and family to send videos wishing the triplets a happy birthday.
"Happy birthday,” said the triplets. “I love you guys. I’m a proud father. Yay."
"We probably did more than what we usually would,” Candace Morgan said. “Everything from an obstacle course, fashion show, karaoke."
Guests came over in shifts throughout the day, each person required to wear a mask, get their temperature checked and get screened for COVID-19 symptoms.
