The twin went creative with Mountain Man's 30th birthday party--she celebrated his new decade a month late. He never saw it coming and truly was very surprised. We celebrated in style at Buca di Beppo which was an hilarious venue. I'd never eaten there before but it was a lot of fun (it's owned by Planet Hollywood so think gobs of chachka)
the baby grandbabies hung out on Poppy's knee while we waited
they eat each other up--it's so fun to watch!
Little Miss was very excited to surprise her daddy
but first she had to wait for him to arrive! we passed the time by mowing on the awesome Halloween-inspired trail mix that Aunty made (candy corn, raisins, sunflower seeds, and Os)
all the kids ate it up!
Big Cousin L and Little Cousin S partied with us
finally, the Superman himself* arrived
(*note: said Superman is not in this picture, just his comic representation)
lots of friends celebrated the start of Mountain Man's new decade of life!
he had to work for his dessert by lighting his own candles:
but Little Miss and Cutie Face were more than happy to help him sing "Happy Birthday" and blow out the candles!
Here's to another wonderful 30 years, Mountain Man! We love you!
