Jim's 60th Birthday Surprise Party
Brian's dad, Jim, is set to turn 60 years old on January 11, 2009. The family decided to throw him a surprise party and so we held it today, a couple of weeks early. The boys (Jim, Brian, Greg, Sean, Alex, and Kale) all headed out to a movie (they saw Valkyrie) while the girls set up for the party and welcomed the guests. The weather didn't really cooperate (it was freezing rain), but that didn't stop Jim's good friends from coming to celebrate with him. Here is a video of Jim entering the house and being surprised... and we really do think he was surprised!
Here are a couple of other pictures from the evening... The first photo is of the cake that Jenny decorated with such care. As you can probably tell, it was a Harley Davidson theme, as that is Jim's current obsession. Then, there's a picture of Larkin with the birthday boy, and then Larkin with our good friend Robin. As you can see, Larkin loved Robin... she couldn't stop staring at her, and she sat in Robin's lap for quite some time while a large group of us played Catch Phrase!
