BIRTHDAY SURPRISE!

This past weekend there was a surprise birthday for my friend, Mary. She literally had no idea what was going on, so when she got to the park (thinking she was meeting up with her husband and kids), she was in shock to see her friends there. It was cute because FOR ONCE, she was speechless.

I think this picture totally captures how overwhelmed she was.

They had games, like, "How well do you know Mary." I tied with another gal, but we both won movie tickets! And since they had extra prizes, I also got a Starbucks giftcard! How awesome is that.

Look at this cake! It was so delicious! This particular bakery is known for their burnt almond cake. It was so moist, and literally about 3 inches thick! And yes, I ate it!

I had to get a picture of the "tweens" who were always off in their own world!

I have no idea what kind of flower/plant this is. I just love it when my daughter takes great pictures!

We surprised my dad for his 50th and he was cover head to toe in dirt. He was so shocked and we even had it in his own shop. He had no clue. It was great.
