Two weekends ago, we had the pleasure of throwing me dad a super 60th birthday bash for all of his friends at our house. Lots of preparation getting the house ready (and painted), tables & chair rented, decorations bought & hung, cake designed and ordered, food & alcohol purchased.
Although it was a rainy Saturday night, over 30 of his lifelong friends came out to celebrate & reminisce as they brought old photos & many great stories about my dad. Many of the guys he works with (and that worked on my house!), as well as childhood friends & hunting/fishing buddies made it out to the party.
By request, we had a BBQ diner from his favorite local place(s) & then some delicious cake before opening up some hilarious gifts.
Both Brenda & his best friend gave a touching tribute to him that often elicited many howls of laughter from the crowd.
Lots of funny cards & hysterical gag gifts, but many friends knew that liquor was the best gift of all. We spent time looking at all the old photos & sharing some memories of all the amazing adventures that my dad has survived.
All in all, it was a wonderful evening for my father & we were so happy to be able to do something like this for him to make 6 amazing decades.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Last night without hubby- he’s on the red eye home from Hawaii.
