For weeks, our sister-in-law Allison has been planning a big surprise party for Tom’s 25th birthday and for weeks we’ve been hiding it from him. He’s never had a “real” party before and Allison deserves an Oscar for her portrayal of a wife who nearly forgot to even celebrate her husband’s birthday at all. He was so upset Friday night, asking her if she was going to make him a cake or at least go out to eat. She played it off so well, telling him they’d go eat at Hinkle Creek Cafe Saturday night for his birthday. We made the 4 hour drive and set up the party with his friends and in-laws at the restaurant for this:
Happy birthday ole buddy ole pal!
