Hello, I'm 30 and here's how it went down. I told Erica a month or so ago that I wanted to have a big 30th birthday party. Erica said, "Shouldn't it be the spouse that plans the party?" It probably should, but I'm not normal and I know what I want. So I told her this is what I want:
1. I want an awesome cake-like an Ace of Cakes-type cake, and I wanted it to be blue and some how incorporate candy.
2. I wanted a candy bar, not one one single candy bar, but a bar full of candy
3.I wanted my dad to make his amazing street tacos and have a full Mexican station of food.
4. I had this crazy obsession with building a jousting platform over the pool and do some American Gladiator-style jousting
5. I wanted games
6. I wanted all my friends to be there
At this point I left it up to my wife--she's the most amazing wife in the entire world, and I had the best party anyone could ever ask for. I also want to let my friends know how much I love them. When I say I love my friends, I really mean I love my friends. Some of them even came from out of state and way out of town to make it and it meant so much to me-it wouldn't have been a party without them. Please enjoy these ridiculous pictures.
Cake compliments of Amy Welch and Erica's "sweet" eye for design
The best candy bar ever, all of my favorites (yes, blue gummy sharks are on the list)
The Beverage Bar... Mormon style
My sexy sister in law (I'm allowed to say that) that sacrificed the opening performance of her concert to come to the fiesta.
Meet the Foulgers-two of the best people I've ever met in my life (and best looking). You'll see a lot more of them on blogs to come-we're so happy they are here.
I think I prayed this couple back into CA. Jenny and I went to Torrey Pines together and not only does she have the best smile and personality, but she married the coolest guy. They make any party entertaining
Matt and Alia my buddy and boss from work-I invited him so he wouldn't fire me. Just kidding, he's one of the coolest guys I know and they are just rad.
We still have so much candy, please come over and eat some.
One of the first minute to win it games. Using only your nose and transferring as many cotton balls from one bowl to another with only vaseline...
I won-eight in a minute-beat that
Game 2-using only your mouth and keeping both feet on the ground, you had to transfer the descending sized bags from the ground to the table. Jenny wasn't the best and her husband showed her up.
Kirby (almost 5 months pregnant) almost showed everyone up. Check out the dedication in her stance.
Mia struggled to even get three, but she did look stylish trying
Please don't try this at home...actually please do-it's real funny. Way to go Erica
I put this picture in here to show you that Tim actually does look normal because in Game 3-only using your face muscles to transfer two cookies from your forehead to your mouth-well see for yourself...
My wife dies laughing every time she sees these pics
Check out the concentration...
I'm sure Kirby will hate that I used this picture, but you can see how cute she is below
The Fish's, expecting a baby boy and traveling all the way from AZ to the party. I love these guys like family
The famous Jousting...no one could beat Scott, maybe because his legs come up to everyones shoulders. Note to husbands-if your wives keep looking at this blog it's not because they are interested-Scott is in shape , we all know it so quit staring-personality counts too right Erica?
