Surprise Party!

My wife surprised me with a Birthday Party today! She told me we were going on a picnic, but when she made me blind-fold to the park, I knew something was going on! When we arrived to the pavilion, I had some of my closest friends and family in attendance. Even my mom came in from Nashville. The weather finally cooperated and was perfect for an outdoor event. While I knew that "something" was going on, I was quite surprised to see everyone there. My sister made some shirts for the occasion (to embarrass me). My baby picture was on the front as you can see here...
And an extremely dorky 5th grade picture was on the back! One of my friends said it should read "My First Mullet" !!! The realization that I turned 30 is starting to set in now! My wife had pictures on every table from the old days. Baby pictures, school pictures, college pictures, and even prom pictures. It was very entertaining to reminisce on the old days.

I hope all of you had a great day, too!

PS- Someone gave me a "certificate" for a one year subscription to the Blytheville Newspaper. Very funny and fake....

That 5th grade photo is first in line for the Region-8 Doppler Ball!

- It's nice that everything worked out for your party -- that looked like it took some behind-the-scenes magic! :D
