Jimmy grew up not really having big birthdays and he has never asked for one since we have been married but I couldn't let his 30th Birthday pass and not do something that he would remember! So one night when he was feeling a bit pouty and was talking about not having very many friends and he said jokingly "I know, why don't you call ALL my friends and throw me a surprise party" he laughed and I laughed a little and then thought "MMM I bet he would never suspect a surprise party" so I went to work the next day at calling all the couples that we have become friends with over the years and I was so happy when most of them said they could make it! Tonight was the big night and I had done so well at not giving any hints to him about anything, he just thought we were going to my parents house for dinner with my parents (today is my Mom's birthday too). So after he got home from work we headed up to my parents and everyone was waiting! I loved watching his face as he realized that all these people were there for him, I think he was a bit mortified at first and then he was excited! We had a great night talking and laughing with everyone! Thanks to all those that made it, we know many of you live far away and we hope you know how grateful we are to have friends like you!

Sorry we had to leave early...both boys fell asleep on the way home! Thanks for inviting us, we had a good time. We need to do a double date again - it was a lot of fun last time but was way too long ago!

Oh man...I read the entry "her pain". That was so touching. I remember how I felt about my best friend at that age. What a loss. I think you were wise to snap that photo. What a moment.
