happy 30th, ben!

my sweet husband claims that he has never had a birthday party. at least the kind of parties that i believe to be worthy of using the term 'party.' :) i couldn't let his 30th go by without a celebration!  if you know ben, you know that this was not his cup of tea AT ALL.  i thought he was going to drive away when he realized what was going on!  :)
my theme was 'KEEP CALM AND FARM ON.' i absolutely loved it. i'm still a little obsessed with it. and that sign that chelsea and i made.  everything was green and yellow, of course.  i had little koozies made that also said keep calm and farm on for everyone to use and take home.  we had hamburgers, hotdogs, watermelon, chips, cokes, homemade ice cream, and cake!  the napkins also said keep calm and farm on, but i didn't get photos of all of that!
it was a complete surprise for him. i have never thrown a surprise party before, and let me tell you, it is HARD work. there's absolutely no way that i couldn't done it without our sweet friends and our parents! they went early and decorated, made hamburger patties, sliced tomatoes, grilled the meat, etc. etc. etc. etc.
(laura is so gonna kill me for posting that pic of her! ha!) we had such a fun time!! it was at the park, so the kids had somewhere to play, and also so that i could keep it a surprise and not have to worry about parking or anything like that in our neighborhood. our friend, mrs. lisa, made this awesome watermelon tractor!!!!
love my people!
happy birthday, babe! :)
