My dad hit the big 5-0 on November 8th. My mom had been trying to think of something great to do for at least a year now! AND after all that brainstorming and planning, it is safe to say it was a success!
On his actual birthday my mom took him up the coast toward Bodega Bay/Jenner. They went to the Charley Brown museum in Santa Rosa, my dad introduced all of us to Charley Brown when we were little, we always watch the holiday episodes.
My mom also threw my dad a surprise party this past weekend! She did a great job and tried her hardest to hide it from him, but my dad is pretty sneaky and knew something was going on. We threw it at my clubhouse, it was the first useful thing about paying HOA fees… So many of his friends came and I know he really enjoyed seeing everyone. My mom had Chipotle cater it, which was awesome! She hired a dealer for a Texas Holdem Tournament, the dealer wasn’t very good (Mark told me she was stinky and she probably lives out of her car, sad!) but everyone had a blast playing nonetheless.
It was a great party! It was fun to be able to be there, I’m so grateful for all my parents friends and the support they have provided each other, I know raising us 4 girls isn’t easy 🙂
Good work Mom, your party was a hit! And happy birthday Dad! I hope you had a wonderful birthday and know that we love you so much! You are the best!
