Emma's Birthday

Emma turned 30 this year. She received 30 gifts of 30 from her mother which the kids had a blast opening. She also went out to dinner with Rob which is a rare occurance these days with double doctoral programs going on in the family and soccer and theater and and and...

Emma admitted that she was a little bummed that there was not more tah dah for her big three ohhh. Rob had been planning a surprise party for weeks. He intentionally down played the whole birthday thing. He even got her best friends involved. Rob invited over a dozen of her closest friends (with the help of April Clayson) and all their children. He secured  a BEAUTIFUL cake, supplies and soda. Each of her friends brought a side dish for the party. Emma had no idea what she was stepping into when she got a text from April telling her she needs to come over and see what April got in the mail that day. Rob told Emma he wanted to go see too. So the whole family went and Emma was elated that she was not forgotten during this special time. Unfortunately with all the planning and cloak and dagger secrets Rob forgot to take pictures.
