Here are photos I took at Zak's (Andrea's oldest son) birthday party on April 5, 2008. The party was held at Andrea's house. It was a suprise party for Zak.
The party started out as a party for Andrea's friends son Jack who was turning 5. That was the excuse Andrea gave Zak why he couldn't go anywhere or do anything that day. He had to help with the party for Jack. About an hour later everyone that was coming to surprise Zak was to show up at Andrea's.
Unfortunately when we got there, Zak was in the front yard & saw us. We told him we were just in the neighborhood & thought we would stop by & say hi (we live 1 1/2 hours away). But he bought our "just in the neighborhood" excuse. It wasn't until a few minutes later when Eric's family was also "just in the neighborhood" that Zak figured out something was fishy. So the surprise was spoiled.
The 2 parties were then combined & everyone had a good time. There were 2 bouncing houses, Zak's band played, Jamey BBQ'd hamburgers and hotdogs. And there were 2 birthday cakes. One for Zak & one for Jack. My son Brandon & Eric's son Cade were not able to attend. Brandon was sick & Cade had a track meet.

Andrea. The pic is blurry but it was the only picture I took of her that day. She was always in the kitchen getting the food ready, cutting cake, dishing up ice cream, etc.
