Steph's surprise party

Thanks to some special blogger buddies, we managed to surprise Steph with a Birthday lunch at Don Pablo's restaurant yesterday. Ivy was in on the conversation. Crooked Eyebrow took these fabulous pictures. Check out other photos on her blog. Beth got the news out to all who wanted to join us for the surprise. I was able to meet sweet Erin, school teacher by day, and her sweet little baby bump. Sarah was there with Ivy's heart-throb, baby Asher. They were flashing baby blues at one another. Lisa also stopped by, even though she was busy with her own daughter's golden birthday. I think the snow storm we had come through kept some people away, but we had a great time. We had our own private room, which was so nice. Steph was escorted to the main dining room before she ate her fried ice cream and everyone said Happy Birthday to her, while she wore the famous red sombrero. It was a great afternoon!
Today is another day of celebration with family. After lunch, we are all going bowling! Pictures to follow!

That's a great picture of Steph and Ivy! You know what it reminds me of? It looks like she's a movie star on a talk show. Great shot! I'm glad I made it just in time. It was nice chatting with you. We should do that more often.
