It's my party

Yesterday I turned 31.  Shaun was a busy bee on Saturday, he put together a surprise party while I was getting a massage (his gift to me) Saturday afternoon.   When I came home, I was greeted by a decorated patio, friends, and my mom's famous sangria! 
 
Baggo was set up in the backyard...
And my dad got to play with our mosquito fogger.  Thankfully, all the plants survived.   
Earlier Saturday, we had put out some lanterns and other patio decor because of the beautiful weather.  I had no idea they would be put to use that night for a surprise party!
Everything looked perfect, but the highlight of the night was definitely Shaun's winning keg stand. 
We know how to party around here.  Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with me!
