Saturday we celebrated my Grandpa's 80th birthday with a surprise party. If anyone deserves a great surprise party its my Grandpa! My grandma, cousin Lindsey, and I have been scheming for months to make the day special.
I think we definitely pulled it off. My Grandma, Aunt, and Uncle told him that they were taking him out to eat for his birthday. When they drive close enough to see the crowd my Grandpa said, "Someone's having a big party down there!" It took him a minute to realize that all of the people were his family and friends who had all come out to celebrate!
He got out of the car and was all smiles when we yelled "SURPRISE!"
We enjoyed a lunch of pulled pork, potato salad, slaw, baked beans, and green beans. Mmmm! And the weather was absolutely perfect.
The celebration was complete with a cake with 80 candles.
I love my family. If there is one thing that we know how to do its celebrate. And love each other.
Happy Birthday, Grandpa!!! You're one of the most amazing men I know!
