Shhhhh.....Surpise 30th Birthday Party!!!!!

My bestie has been planning a surprise 30th Birthday Party for her husband, Andy, for almost a year now!  The party not only had ALL of his favorites, but remained a surprise until he walked through the double doors!!!!
All those who know Andy know he loves football, food, ketchup, Diet Dr Pepper, golf, spending time with friends and family and more ketchup!  Rachel did an amazing job incorporating all of these and more in the party...

Rachel had a game called "30 Things to know about Andy and 1982".  The answer to the last question was another surprise gift to play golf at one of Andy's favorite courses!
Andy is loved by many and so many people flew and drove from all over to be here in honor of his 30th Birthday...
A huge hit was the cardboard cut outs of Andy:)  We had a blast taking these pics...

We ended the night with Andy's favorite Ice Cream which Rachel had flown in as yet another surprise!
Happy 30th Andy!

Sunset Beach 2012

We spent the 4th of July week at Sunset Beach with our favorite family friends.  I have been going to Sunset with the Lippard girls and George since 1994.  Our group is growing every year, but I will always cherish the years of the just the 4 of us "originals".
Most of our time was spent on the beach....playing in the sand, riding waves, dancing, playing bocce and reading:)

Happy 4th!  We held our annual Corn Hole Tournament and Cookout!

The girls love the Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream...

Ryan and Andy love building HUGE sandwiches.....they could barely get their mouths around this thing!
The last day we took a picture of the entire gang....
Hope everyone had a great 4th week.  Can't wait until we get to do it all over again next year:)
