On Saturday,Kristen and I surprised Tim and Donavon with a 30th birthday party. They were really surprised. Tim's b-day is July 9 and Donavon's is June 25. So we did it a little bit early, but K &D are moving in a week :( and we had to do it before then.
So here are some pictures of our fun. They're not great photos, but you get the idea. Kristen will probably have some way better ones.
We put up some pictures of the boys from childhood up to now. It was fun to see how far they've come.
This turned out so dark, I forgot to turn my flash on and wasn't paying attention to the pictures I was taking until it was too late. But we served burgers, hot dogs, and brats. Super delish!
These juices were a hit. The kids couldn't stay out of them. I loved these things when I was a kid. We also made felt mustaches for people to wear. Mustaches were kind of our theme for the evening, since the boys are now officially old men. Well, in the next month or so anyway.
We wrote in chalk on the pots. On one table it said "Happy 30th B-day!" and on the other it said "Donavon and Tim, Hooray!" I loved how the flower pots turned out.
I made the boys shirts to go with our mustache theme.
I love Jacob in the background. This kid was so chill all day long. I couldn't have asked him to be better.
We decided to celebrate youth by having a relay race that started off with a 3-legged race.
And ended with a massive water balloon fight. I love Tim's intensity in this photo. Water balloons are serious business.
James got soaked.
We made delicious chocolate mustaches.
We did cupcakes in a jar with a sprinkling of rock candy on top. They were a big hit and, oh-so-yummy!
Thanks to everyone that made this night a success! And thanks to the two birthday boys. We really couldn't have done it without you!
