Happy 40th!

Turning 40 is a great reason to celebrate! And that we did in Grand Fashion and it was all a surprise!  Since we had traveled to Las Vegas for Pat's dream 40th celebration with a group of 18 people I think we were able to completely surprise him on the day of his actual birthday. 

I enlisted a lot of help from family and friends.  My great next door neighbor came over to help me hang a tv up.
We met for a birthday drinks at our friend Louis Ds. Then at 6 pm I told Pat we had to go.  I had brought along a scarf to blindfold Pat since we were only traveling a block and I knew he would see everyone's vehicles but of course I couldn't find the scarf so Ellie's ski pants would have to do as a blind fold. 

 I drove and turned left and right and Pat knew just where we were so then I took a detour through the Library and rec center which really threw him off.  Eventually we ended up at the restaurant where Pat walked in to a celebration of 65 friends and family!

 The best surprise was that his Mom and Dad had driven all the way from Foam Lake and were there at the restaurant waiting.  He had no idea!

Kelly and the staff at Pic a Deli went out of their way to make a fantastic meal and make the evening very special!

 My awesome friend Kristen got the cake and made a great photo collage of Pat's bull riding in Vegas!

And what better way to end the night with a little spa pampering.  Shaving off the old Movember moustache!  It was  a night to remember.
