Jeremy's Big 3-0! (and a recap)

We celebrated my husband's 30th birthday on Saturday night. The theme was Vintage 1982.

I found all sorts of things that happened, cost, and were popular in 1982 and made little sheets and pasted them to newspaper for people to read. Then I hung them on my cabinets, it was the perfect place for them. I also cut out some pacman figurines, put them face down on some tape and then just attached put the tape along the bottom of my cabinets too. 

Then I made these rad neon tape banners by printing and cutting out the tapes and then sewing them together. I've gotten pretty good with my sewing machine and I've discovered that sewing paper is pretty easy!

The cake was German Chocolate, although I was told by almost everyone that it tasted more like a Mounds or Almond Joy. Either way, it was a huge hit and there was none left at the end of the evening. I will have to share the recipe sometime, it's not hard to make!

We mostly hung out in the backyard around the fire-pit, so I put together a tray for smores, made a huge pot of hot chocolate and then had Bailey's close by for a little bit of kick for those who wanted it. ;)

Henry and his cousins on the back of the firetruck!

The party was great, but it didn't start until 7 so I worked all day. But for once work was really just another fun-filled day. We had our annual Safety Awareness Day. 

There were fireman, police men, police dogs, all sorts of vehicles, food, a jump house and the highlight - care-flight.

Henry mostly loved the dalmatians.

The next morning I got the privilege of photographing one of my best friends, her husband and their little girl. Henry and Layla are only a month apart and Jessica and I try to get together about once a week. They are such a gorgeous family and we all had a great time. I just thought I would share a couple of photos from their session as well!

It was a busy and good weekend, and although it's Wednesday - I thought I'd share anyway!
