Beach Bash

My BIL hit the big 3-0 this week. Man, he's getting old. What's funny is I've known him since he was 14. I have literally known him half his life. And he's been married to my sister just about as long. Just kidding, but it sure seems that way.

My sister, being party planner extraordinaire planned him an AWESOME surprise party. The them was a 50's Beach Bash. The BIL had no idea. My hubby took him for an overnight fishing trip and brought him back to a huge waterslide in his yard, an outdoor theater, hamburgers and hotdogs, 50 people dressed up like a blast from the past and some really short shorts for him to wear.
It was such a fun day. There was a watermelon eating contest for the guys and a hula hoop contest for the girls. For prizes you could choose from Silly Putty, Fireballs, Bubble Gum, polka-dot sunglasses for the girls and fake Raybans for the guys. They also set up a volleyball court and a badminton court. When it got dark we all watched movies outside. They set up a sheet on the side of the garage and had a projector. So much fun! Happy birthday to my old BIL!

Your sister should open her own party planning business...seriously. She comes up with the best ideas.
