Papa's Birthday Party

My Father's Name is Rick, he is a very important part of my life. One of my few best friends in life. He's an incredibly talented human being. He is compassionate and very giving to his family. It truly means the world to me that he is helping to raise my children. We are all incredibly blessed to have him as the Papa in our family.

Every year now it is tradition that my 3 kids have each of their birthday parties at his and my Mom's house. It is our kids favorite place to go and so there is no real other logical place to hold a birthday party.
This year it just so happened that we were doing some upgrades to our home and wanted the whole family to come over and see the new carpet and decor. I scheduled it for the last week of July. My Dad knew that my brother and his family would be coming along as well but had no idea that we had all pitched in to throw him a little surprise birthday party as his birthday is July 31st.

I decorated with gold and red balloons to match his Guitar themed gift packaging. One of his many many talents is being a musician.
My Mom and Dad spend so much time on us kids and our families throughout the year that they don't get much pampering for themselves so together we gave them a gift certificate to a beautiful spa to get a couples massage.

We had pizza and cookie cake so no one had to cook and clean up. The kids ran around the house and had so much fun being together.
Days like this make life so joyful~!
Happy Birthday Daddy! We hope you had a good one!
