Oh no, the Big 7-0

My dad had a big day yesterday....  His 70th birthday!  I couldn't let something like this go by without a celebration, so....  we celebrated!

Since I am used to planning kid parties, this one was a bit of a challenge.  My mom entrusted me to handle the details.  I made reservations at a Bowling Alley inside a casino.  (Odd combo, I know!)  Invited all his friends and family.  Made a TON of cupcakes.  And then enjoyed the surprise.  I think we really got him!

 He thought he was going to a Mexican Restaurant with his friends.  Inside a Bowling Alley?! 

 Yes, I made every single cupcake and cupcake topper.  Not many believed me, not even my dad!

 My mom and dad and their babies.

Emma playing with Pappy's friend's granddaughters.  I grew up with their parents!

Happy Birthday, Dad.  Gotcha - surprise!  But even better than that, glad I've gotcha forever :)
