Red, White, and Birthday

Justin's birthday is on the 4th. Apparently he experienced a lot of patriotic parties and gifts when he was young and as an adult, he's kind of over it. If only he didn't have a wife who said -- "LOOK! Someone's setting off fireworks for your birthday!" -- every single year. This year we made plans to go to the Brewer's game on Tuesday with my brother-in-law and a friend of ours.

It started off innocently enough at a barbecue at my in-laws' house on Saturday. My brother-in-law joked "One of us should wear red, one of us wear white, and the other wear blue and see if Justin notices". Then we texted our other friend who was going with us, and he was totally on board. And it all spiraled out of control from there.

When we got to the stadium and started setting up our tailgating stuff, the boys and I brought out flag-themed napkins, plates, cups, can coolers, bubbles, necklaces, a party hat, glow flags, bandanas, and scarves. We listened to patriotic music while we had burgers and then sang happy birthday to Justin so he could blow out his red and blue candles on top of his red, white, and blue brownies. Before the game started we slipped away and made a happy birthday poster to hold up during the game.


                                    


Justin was definitely surprised and I'm pretty impressed with all of us for keeping it all a secret from him. Our seats were awesome, the game was great, the Brewers won, and aside from a red-hot sunburn on my legs I don't think the day could have gone better.
