Jodi's Surprise Birthday Party!

.... It worked! Jodi was totally and completely surprised! This was a huge accomplishment in itself because she tends to be very suspicious about this kind of stuff and always knows if something is going on! =) We were thrilled to have finally got one over on her. It was a wonderful evening, with good friends and amazing food!

Sarah's already beautiful screened in porch was even more pretty for the party

Drinks

Kacey, Tiff, Wendi, Andrea

Pretty sitting area and view off the patio

Jodi's friends had just sent her a fun 30th birthday shirt that was perfect for the party!

Singing "Happy Birthday" (not our best performance ever)

Jodi and her cake

A few people left a little before 10, and the rest of us hung around for a while, and played several rounds of a fun game called, Whoonu. I didn't get home until 12:15! Keenan had no mercy and was still up before six though... =)
