Yesterday Tricia and I (and Erik and David too!) hosted a surprise party for my parents 30th wedding anniversary. Since my parents were in Ireland for the past 3 weeks we were able to do all the planning without making them suspicious so things worked out perfectly and we were able to totally shock them!!
It was so fun to surprise them with a re-creation of their wedding cake from Borrachini’s. In the background we had a picture blown up from their wedding along with a recent one from a photo session last summer.
My best attempt at making a cake topper out of flowers. It actually resembled theirs fairly well :)
Everyone was surprised when my dad’s sister Diana (next to my dad in the purple shirt) and her husband Carl (in the striped shirt) walked in. They live in Metlakatla, Alaska so we definitely didn’t expect them to make it!!
We were also able to surprise them with a visit from my dad’s sister Donna (in the striped shirt) and her husband Tom (in the blue) who came over from Twisp, WA. In the end, all my dad’s brothers and sisters were here except for Donald who lives in Montana. Tricia and David
A huge thanks to everyone who came and made the day so much fun! Also, thanks to Erik who put together a fabulous slideshow of pictures from the past 30 years. I think we’ll be watching that at family functions for many years to come :)
Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad! We love you both very much!!
