I wanted to have some sort of surprise incorporated with his birthday, so I secretly sent a text to his friends in Tyler: Jason & Alicia and Ryan & Alicia. Ryan and Alicia were immediately in! Jason and Alicia made a last minute decision to come, but everything worked out without a hitch!
What a perfect night! We started off by meeting 3 other couples at the Pour House before dinner. I loved the 'chill' atmosphere and getting to see everyone!

|Josh and Briana|

After the Pour House we went to Pappadeaux to stuff our faces! I think we all ate light all day so that we could have empty bellies for such a delicious dinner. We are so blessed to have such amazing friends and family to celebrate the BIG things and the small things in our lives. There were 17 of us for dinner...
|Sweetest friend in the world...Camille!|
|Ashlee and Dale|

|Doug, Lindsay and Rhonda (Lindsay's Mom)|
|Aaron and Taylor|

Picture Posing Time!
|Uh...yep, that's my husband :)|
|Who knows! Obviously they're in awe of the Captain America tattoo!|

After stuffing ourselves, some of us walked over to Four Day Weekend for an improv comedy show. It is a MUST if you're in the FtW area! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time and it was well worth our money. We were a few minutes late to the show, which meant that NO seats were available in the theater for 10 late comers. Oh well! We placed our booties on the stairs and watched the show from there. The next time we will definitely be early :)

|Our sweet friends from Tyler. So blessed!|
|Large Fries and a Diet Coke...yes please! I think I might have left a |
handful for Taylor. My weakness at midnight driving home :)
Oh yeah...and my gift to Taylor...
