Matt's "Surprise" 30th Birthday Party!!!

I threw Matt a "Surprise" 30th birthday party this past Friday evening. We had it at Firestone Restaurant on the Riverfront in Wilmington, DE. Matt and I LOVE this place. It is on the water, offers a nice relaxed atmosphere, serves delicious food, and has live music every night!! So, I knew this would be the perfect place to have his party!

I know Matt and I had a GREAT time celebrating. We were so thankful that many of our friends were able to join us in celebrating MATT!!! Our friends are AWESOME and we are BLESSED to have them in our life!!

Me, Mandi, and Faith!! It was awesome having Faith and Shane come up from Dover (technically, south Smyrna)!! We haven't seen them all summer!!

Here is the cake!!! Our friend, Karrie, made this AMAZING cake for Matt!! She ROCKED it and the cake was truly PERFECT for Matt's party!! Karrie designed it herself...I thought it was super special that Karrie thought to incorporate Matt's business, 2 Fish, into the design by using the logo colors and even the Fish too!!! See the little green guy?!! There were more fish randomly placed around the cake!! Everyone was blown away by the cake!!! Karrie, you are AWESOME! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

P.S. The cake was delicious too!! And the number 30 up top...that was made out of white chocolate!! Matt REALLY enjoyed eating them!!

Everyone chatted, ate, and chilled together. It was great! Our friends are awesome and we love them all!

More chatting ; )

Here is a shot of some of the party singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Matt!!

I know Matt was really touched to have his friends and family together to celebrate with him!!

Blowing out the candles....see some more Fish??!!!

I just LOVE him so much!!!

The rest of the shots are of our friends chatting and having a good time!!

What a night!!! We didn't get back home until 1:00 am!!! THANKS, Aunt Judy for watching our girls!! You are awesome! We ate, talked, danced, walked the riverfront, and all in all had an awesome time!

P.S. To all our friends....Thanks for dancing with us!!! I know it isn't everyone's thing, but it was great having you come out and dance anyway since you all know how much we love too! We appreciated that! And you all held your own out there too ; )

Happy 30th, Bunny!! You are loved by many!!!
