Birthday Party

This past weekend was my dad's 60th surprise party. My sister, mom, and I have been working many months to plan this party. We had every detail planned! Blogger World, I wish you could have attended. Not only was my dad completely surprised, he was speechless; which is no small task. The man always has something to say!

My sisters, mom, and I had a lot of fun planning the party.  My dad works hard for his family, and it was nice to throw a party in his honor. He deserved the party for sure...even if he'd already thrown his own party last month. *INSERT EYE ROLL HERE*

When he entered the room everyone screamed Happy Birthday. He thought he was attending a Back to School dinner for my mom's school, so a party never ever crossed his mind.  

Like I said...he was speechless. All he could do was laugh and smile. 

 Happy Birthday cake and 60 candles. 
Two weeks ago, Sister #1's BFF had a surprise party for her mom. At their party they had 60 candles in a block of wood. After my mom witness this she told Sister #1's BFF we needed to borrow the wood candle holder for my dad's party. 

Almost all my dad's siblings made it to the party. One sister was unable to attend. My dad was so proud to have his siblings at the party. He enjoyed introducing each of them to his friends and coworkers.

A picture of my dad with his brothers. These guys are like a bunch of women. They are constantly talking on the phone to each other. I'm not exaggerating. It's ridiculous! 

Here are a few pictures of some cousins. Not only did my dad's siblings attend, their families came too. It was like a mini reunion; which was very fun!

My family

This is one of my aunts. She loves taking pictures. Truth be told, you want her to take your picture. She's good at making you look slim and hot in a photograph! 

 Two of our aunts volunteered to be the bartenders at the party. 
They were really good, and they were free. 

Ok, I'm sure everyone is bored with family pictures. I'll wrap up this post. 
It was a great weekend...maybe the best of the summer.

My parents both turn 60 in October... 3 days apart ... but they're divorced ... we've been talking about parties there... we could never do a surprise party for my dad as he drives semi... I'm using ... a lot because there is too much to say :) I'm stressed about the whole thing if you can't figure that out...
