Last night my family threw a surprise party for my dad's 50th birthday. I cannot tell you how many hours of sleep I have forgone thinking about this party and wondering if my dad would have a good time.
The worrying ended up being completely ridiculous because he had a blast. However, he was obviously suspicious because about 30 minutes before the party started we caught his car lurking in the next cup-de-sac over. When he saw my family's cars parked at my house, he thought he had us figured out, that we were having a party at my house.
So, to be a stinker, he took his sweet time getting here, which of course just made the party bus late.
I think he was even more surprised when we drove to the Boulevard Brewery where we had a room rented for an entire night of drinks, dinner, and fun.
My favorite part of the night was an impromptu roast, where all of us got up and told funny stories about him.
It was a good night with great people.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving - soak in every single second of that precious family time.
