Hail to the King

My Aunt Andrea is one of the most thoughtful people I know. Second only to her Savior, she loves her children more than anything in the whole world. Greg has always claimed to be her favorite. Although she denies, it is clear that he certainly holds a special place in her heart.

Yesterday Greg OFFICIALLY turned 30. Since we had already had his big shindig back in November, his mom wanted to throw him another small surprise party on his actual birthday. As many of you know, Greg is kind of tough to buy presents for. But there is one present that never fails, Costco Gift Cards. His sweet mother, knowing his love of Costco, thought it to be the most appropriate venue for his 30th Birthday party.
The big surprise!

(please watch for it in the upcoming Costco Newsletter. Apparently, its their first birthday party). Oddly, the manager did not want to be in any of the photos.

The Cake

The best birthday song ever

and Isla even hit a milestone by getting to have her first ride in the shopping cart.

Happy Birthday Uncle Greg. Your the best friend, cousin, uncle and roommate anyone could ever ask for. Hail to the King.


  1. AWESOME. Seriously. What a joyous occasion and suitable celebration location.

  2. Happy birthday to Greg and what a funny place to have it, although it sounds like the perfect place for Greg. :) Looks like you guys had a great time though. Your family is so fun! Isla looks like such a big girl in the cart. Is she really that old already??!?! Crazy how fast time goes.

  3. This is hilarious! Send our birthday wishes his way. A+ for your family's creativity!

  4. Hilarious! What a great (and obviously affordable) birthday party location!
