This post is a little over due.......but then again most of mine are:) Kevin turned the big 3-0 in May and I threw him a surprise party which actually remained a surprise to him! We had it in our backyard and I got him out of the house by sending him golfing (which he thought was a birthday gift, but was actually just to get rid of him for a few hours....hehehe) and while he was out all of the decorating took place and the guests arrived. I was so occupied that I did not get a picture of the set up.....but it was a Hawaiian theme and looked so cute!
His biggest surprise was the guest list.......it included some people that he never would have guessed to be at his party. Two of his best friends from Harding who live six hours away and their wives came all the way down just for him. The look on his face was priceless and it was exactly what I was wanting:) It will forever be one of those memories that sticks with me and makes me smile.
So I thought in the spirit of thirty I would list thirty things about Kevin that you may or may not know!!
