A Surprise 80th Birthday and A Baby Shower = A Busy Weekend!

Happy Monday Readers!! I hope you all had a fun weekend, I know I did! This will be a very long post so buckle up! This weekend was a fun packed non-stop two days! On Saturday my husband's family gave his Grandpa a surprise 80th Birthday party! It was a wonderful party with good family, friends and food! It was so nice to see my husband's Aunts, Uncles and cousins as well as the look on his Grandpa's face when the big surprise was unveiled! People flew in from all around the country! :) Here are some pictures from the evening's festivities!

It was at a beautiful venue called the Walker House in San Dimas Ca. the home was originally built in the 1800's.

I will be adding more pictures as soon as I receive them. Rich's Aunt took some wonderful photos of all the guests in attendance. Stay tuned!

Here is the cake they had made for me.

Here are some of my gifts.

It was such a blustery, rainy day!
Most unusual weather for Southern California.
Rich's family must truly care for you Sarah; to have such happy faces, and to have driven their long drive in that weather just to celebrate You and baby Robert!
I thank God that you are so well received by your other family!
You have been showered with so much love, sunshine, and generosity.
I can't wait to see Renee's pictures.
The fun and food was just delightful.
Thank you Carla,Renee, and Christine.
