On January 8th, we (my Mom,brothers, Aunt Mary and Uncle Larry, Chris and I) threw my dad a "surprise" party to celebrate his 50th birthday. We spent weeks coming up with a guest list, menu, getting the word out and asking everyone to keep it a secret :) We invited about 350 of his family and friends to help him celebrate. Well, he wasn't surprised by the party but he WAS surprised at the attendance :) Apparently, we aren't too good at keeping secrets! Anyways, it was a great party and we truly enjoyed being able to celebrate with him! Here's to 50 more years!
