Blue's surprise 30th party





Since Blue turned 30 February 25th I figured it was time I surprised him (usually it's the other way around). So Saturday I told him that the kids and I were taking him to a nice little French breakfast place when really I dropped him off with his brother Dallas. I popped open the trunk and gave him his paintball gun, shabby clothes, money and sent him off for a testosterone filled morning at Tempe Paintball. He was so shocked! It was priceless. Then it was a "family dinner" at the Fish Market - his favorite restaraunt. Just us and Mom and Ross...we got there 15 minutes early so I stalled: "Oh, I don't want to take all these papers into the restaraunt," and I started taking scraps out of my purse - one by one! Then I left the light on in the car and locked it: "Oh honey, can you open the car and lock it?" While he muttered under his breath I s-l-o-w-l-y pulled on my jacket. "Wonder if Mom's here yet?" I stopped and gazed around the parking lot, then began to text her. And my final tactic was to run to the bathroom the second we got inside and demand that he wait for me. My dear patient husband. It resulted in us walking into the back room his friend Paul reserved for us and being greeted with a "surprise" from 30 people! Again, he was shocked and my stress was all worth it. We had 2 hours of laughing, weird sushi tasting, a football pinata, and vanilla icecream (that's Blue's preference) for dessert. Then we had one more surprise - a jazz night at Phx's top Jazz Lounge with a band that singled Blue out and made him dance a birthday dance (I stepped in with him to save the embarrassment). I can honestly say I was sick ALL the next day from it all, but he was SO surprised and happy about everything so it was worth it.

I'm so glad you are on here. Your profile pic looks like it was taken by the paparazzi on what otherwise would have been a quiet getaway from the demands of Hollywood life. In short, you look like movie stars.
