On Spetember 24th Ryan turned a big 3-0! I know that this is a big deal so I thought I would throw him a surprise birthday partay. I was so excited to do this because Ryan hates surprises, and I thought it would be so fun for him to be surprised. I thought that the only way to keep it a surprise was to let everyone know via phone. I text everyone, and called everyone that doesn't text. I would then erase all the texts so there was no proof. Well unfortunately I was too slow at erasing some texts. One Sunday morning I received a text while getting ready for church. Ryan was curious to see who was texting me, so he opened my phone and saw who it was from, then it made him even more curious what she had to say to me, so he opened it and all it said was "I'm sorry, Ryan and I can't make it". So that made Ryan even MORE curious, and he went to my sent texts and found the one I sent to everyone about the surprise party.
My bad! It was still so much fun though! Luckily he didn't tell me he knew about it until we pulled into the house. I thought I was doing so good, I even had him reading me an email from his phone when we pulled into the neighborhood so he wouldn't see any of the cars.
I feel like we had a great turnout! Lots of friends and family came to celebrate. We ate food, hung out, roasted marsh mellows, and had fun!
I'm sad though that I didn't get my camera out til the very end, so I wasn't able to capture ALL the fun that was happening.
