Happy 65th Birthday Dad!

My dad turned 65 on September 5th but we didn't celebrate till September 12th. The day started off great because I had the day off to spend with my dad. I took him to Cafe Rio for lunch and then he showed me all 571 pictures of his vacation in St Lucia. What a fun time! Also, we were able to go to Nielsen's Frozen Custard Ice-cream shop which is our favorite. It didn't matter that we went three different times. The lady knew us by the time we left.

Also, my creative mom put together a surprise birthday bash at our local dollar theater. While I took my dad out, my mom and sister Tiffany got the cupcakes and any other last minute surprises. Later that night, my mom and I pretended that we were going to see Indiana Jones with Jason, Emily and the kids. Well, my dad was in for a big surprise. My mom rented out a movie theater for friends and family. There were a few people we didn't know. They must have snuck in. Oh well! We ended up seeing Indiana Jones so that wasn't a lie but we also got to see a slide show of Ronald Hal Roberts. It was perfect! And yes, Josh-it made me get a little teary eyed to see my dad all happy at his very own surprise party. Josh will now have something else to tease me about. Lucky me! Well, I wanted to wish my dad a happy birthday and hope he enjoyed the perfect day cause I sure did. Thanks Dad! And thanks mom for going to So Cupcake with me the next day. That was a lot of fun. Let's do it again next time! Love you.

How fun! Did you get to go home to California, or was this in Utah? What a fun thing to do though! And what a fun family!
