Dad's Surprise 60th Birthday Party

On Saturday, October 17, we had a surprise party for dad's 60th birthday. The party was held at Pizzeria Uno, then an after party was at The Water Tower to see Scattertrain. Scattertrain is a band we started following in 2011 after seeing posters around. They disbanded in May 2012, shockingly. Mom announced a few weeks before the party that they reformed, but with some new members, they would be playing again and we would see them after dad's surprise party. It was a fun night and it was nice seeing some of the family from dad's side. I haven't seen them since Nan's funeral.

Dad really enjoyed his surprise party. Dad enjoyed his birthday this year. :)

  1. Happy belated birthday to your dad, Jessica Marie! He's a few years younger than old Shady here and he looks great. I'll bet he laughed like crazy when he first laid eyes on that Holy Crap toilet tissue cake. I never saw anything so comical! It looks like a great time was had by all at the pizza shop and at The Water Tower where Scattertrain was playing.

    Thanks for showing us the highlights of this happy occasion, dear friend Jessica!

    1. Hi Shady!

      Yes, Dad LOVED that cake and he gave a big chuckle. My aunt finds a lot of creative things and recreates it. She's an awesome baker.

      Everyone had a great time. He was so happy to see some of his family that he hasn't seen in three years. His cousin told both him and I to stop by and visit some time.

      When we saw Scattertrain, the lead singer saw me and gave me a big hug. When I used to use Facebook, we were friends. He asked what happened to my Facebook and I told him I deleted it in June 2014. When I still had Facebook, I used to post a lot of the band pictures I took - I also corresponded a lot with all of the bands I followed. It was nice seeing them again and hearing them play.

      You're welcome, Shady! I will be posting another happy occasion tonight. Have a great day, dear friend!
