bestest birthday ever

this is the place that we my wife she and i had our best
birthday celebration we have ever had

my birthday is in march and hers is 3 days after mine
so we usually will do our birthdays celebration together
you know like when your birthday comes near christmas
so you celebrate your birthday and christmas together
and you sort of get screwed in the deal but not really
as every one celebrates as your birthday arrives

so over all its probably a good deal for everyone

so it is and was with our birthdays over the years and
weve enjoyed it this way every year

this year we were blindsided both of us by a surprise
birthday party that was kept secret by a lot of people
who usually cant always keep secrets
(still cant believe there wasnt a leak somewhere)

ive had surprise parties before but you know its coming
as there are whispers and goings on that you recognize as
being different

well this one was masterfully done by my sons my smiley
sweet daughterinlaw and others
including the infamous wet suitcase sisterinlaw of mine
yes masterfully done up to that moment of surprise when
we walked into one of our favorite places to eat in the
austin area
ok it was ztejas

i would show the picture of my wife she  and of myself at the
moment of full impact of the surprise expertly captured on
but if i did my wife she would probably kill me as the photos
will have to be photo shopped some before they can be
one person was real worried my wife she would pass out
from the shock
if you saw that picture of her at the impact moment you
would have too
she looked like she would explode all over

lets just say that they definitely showed the degree of surprise
at its highest level

now this birthday for one of us is not one that when you reach
it you want to celebrate and definitely not celebrate with a large
well my wife she has reached one of those and i had planned no
such celebration as i had warned her that i 110% did not want
one for myself that year
if she did i would get up and walk away
she agreed and i agreed not to do it to her

well it happened anyway but the fact that it was for both of us
diffused that bad year celebration away for her

it was celebrated with a group of friends and family members that
we would have wanted together at a party at our house


it was the bestest birthday ever
