Happy Birthday Dad!

This past weekend we celebrated my dad's 60th birthday at the beach house.  We had so much fun!!!  He was born in 1951 and graduated in 1969 so we really played up the hippie, groovy, tie dyed, generation theme.  We all wore matching tie dyed shirts.  
(yes, we got plenty of looks on the beach)  

A retro candy bouquet to bring back memories...

We grilled Psychedelic Kabobs, had "Half-Baked" Bean, Crazy Cool Cornbread, and Rad Roasted Peace Potatoes.

A groovy tie dyed surfboard cake with tie dye in the middle!!!
Thank you Allison.  You are so talented!

He got alot of great gifts and the one from all of us was a picture of all 8 grand kids together. 

How cute are they??

We love you dad!  You're the best.  Happy Birthday.


  1. Neat idea! Such a fun theme and great pics of the kiddos :)

  2. Coming from that era I gotta say...very cute idea! But ya know those "hippees" would have not had all the same colored t-shirts! Hee hee! Still, what an adventure. I'm sure your dad loved it! :-)

  3. Thanks the most memorable I ever had, or maybe I can't remember longer than 364 days
