Stevo’s Surprise Party!

**Don’t forget my Sonic Gift Card Giveaway… just click HERE to leave a comment and be entered to win!**

Stevo turned the big 3-0 on August 9th!!!  His mom and I had been planning a surprise party for him for several weeks, and we pulled it off successfully.  It was SO much fun to plan and it was really hard for me to keep quiet – but he was definitely surprised (more like shocked) and we all had a blast.

We had the party on the day before his birthday, on Sunday the 8th.  His mom had told him that she wanted to grill for his birthday with Gina and Richie, some friends of ours, but when Stephen and I walked in, there were lots of decorations, balloons, and 14 of our closest friends and family yelling “Surprise!” and blowing kazoos. I had SO much fun decorating.  I tried to do a blue and white/silver theme. (Cowboys Colors)  I bought paper streamers that Britney and I put up in the kitchen (I don’t have a good picture of those) and LOTS of ballons, a 30th birthday banner, and plastic blue curly-Q streamers that we hung from the living room ceiling.

We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and had cupcakes and went swimming – it was a really fun afternoon.  I was so glad when it was over so that I could finally talk to Stephen about all the planning I had done and how hard it had been for me to keep my mouth shut!

These are all the pictures I took, and they’re not the best.  I didn’t really think to take pictures until everybody had left, and I didn’t even get good ones of all my decorations.  :(  Oh well – we had a great time!
