My son Jeffrey will be 40 next week, to be sure of surprising him my daughter-in-law threw a surprise party for him this past Saturday at my brother's house in Brooklyn. Jeffrey thought he was going there to celebrate my niece's engagement.
A few of the party goers practice hiding in the corner. My baby bro shows us how hot the sun is when "be there in 10 minutes" turns into more than a half hour
Finally, from the other side of the house, birthday boy and his best girl arrive.
Lots of hugging
Lots of laughter from his friends
Once she got over the shock of a crowd of people yelling surprise at her and Daddy, Hope had a great time with her friends
Corn-on-the-cob was a big hit
Until cake came along. Dad got the first slice and then there was some discussion about who got the corner flowers. Hope wasn't happy for a moment but then everyone shared.
A toast to the birthday boy
Me and my sweeties
Happy Birthday to a good son, a good Dad, and a good guy
