Brad turned the big 40. I asked him what he wanted to do to celebrate. Of course he said "nothing." I told him to choose between a fun trip somewhere or a party. He chose a party but said only if it is family friendly and kids can be there. The party was the celebration of Brad and his twin brother Brian's 40th. I hired a fantastic musician to play live music (he was amazing), a balloon artist for the kids, and a photographer. We had 110 people attend the party. It was amazing. Brad's aunts and uncles flew in from Colorado, Idaho, and Wisconsin. His brother Tom flew in from Africa. Tom got custom African shirts made for the birthday boys but the embroidery got lost in translation. The embroidery said "70th birthday." I will never forget the memories of the wonderful celebration.
