Surprise!

My parents celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary on June 30th. Jake, Melissa, Jodi, David, Joel, and I pulled off a surprise party for them on Saturday, August 1st. Thank you to everyone that kept it a secret...you did a great job! Mom and Dad were down the alley at Dan & Deb's house for the afternoon at a birthday party. Jodi, David, Joel, and I just took turns going down there and making sure they were well entertained. When we had a crowd at our house we told them that we had a surprise for them and they had to wear blind folds to walk down the alley (otherwise they would see all the cars at our house!)


They were SO surprised when we took the blind folds off and there were about 60 of their friends and family members shouting, "Surprise! Happy 30th Anniversary!" I'm pretty sure mom cried.


Jodi took care of ordering the cake...


I caught dad visiting with his groomsmen...



David and Jake were busy giving Joel a hard time for not wearing a Cub's shirt...


Evan was excited to see Cameron for the day...

But most importantly I think Mom and Dad enjoyed having all their kids together for the afternoon...


We love you mom and dad and hope that you enjoyed your party and we wish you the best for the next 30 years!
