The Old Man and Lauren's Birthday Party

Monday, April 7, 2014

Two weekends ago, we all got together to celebrate the 30th birthdays of my dear old husband and one of my best friends Lauren. It was a night we all won't soon forget, filled with food, fun, embarrassing stories, late night bar dance parties, and pictures to last a lifetime. Here is a fun little recap:
