Oh what a fun weekend!!! My friend, Heather, and I planned a big surprise 30th birthday party for our husbands! (My Chris's is in March and her Chris's is in April!) We have been planning this for over a year!!! It turned out to be a gorgeous day (although almost a lil toooo the 90's!)! But they were definitely surprised!!!

Our pastor (who is Heather's dad) was the one who got them to the party....
My Chris, especially, had no clue since his birthday was a month previous!!! LOL

There were even more people than this there....

Alot of people sat behind where I took the pic where there were trees for shade! It was super hot!

I think everyone had a nice time (I got a nice tan...LOL!). We had a Steeler theme as we live in Western PA and are big Steeler fans here! :) We all cooked hotdogs and my aunt made the cake (pictured with the Chris' in the top pic). We had pop and nachos and pasta salads and meat/cheese trays!

The funniest part of the afternoon...was when Debbie (Heather's mom and our pastor's wife) did the ceremonial ooga booga initiation....(have you ever heard of this?)....

Heather and I soaked sponges while the guys were doing what Debbie told them..."ooga, booga" and such....

Then Heather slipped them in on their chairs while they were standing and when they went to sit back is the result....

It was sooooooooooooooooooooooo hilarious!!! Then, I am there taking pics and laughing and Heather's Chris goes after her with the sponge and my Chris comes after me....I started running..but I was in flip flops and gave up and he got me all wet too!!! LOL Then they both went and soaked Debbie too!!! It was so so funny and everyone was laughing!!!!!! Aren't their faces in that pic sooooooo hysterical???

We have had a beautiful weekend here in PA!!! It's been a lil warmer than I like....but it is suppose to cool down a bit later in the week. I am looking forward to it! I hate having to run fans too much! The kids have been having a blast outside riding their bikes and enjoying the sun and God's beautiful Creation! However, they are each still battling a bit of a they haven't been as fully active playing as usual!

I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing in my special weekend with me! :)
