Perry The Platypus' 50th Birthday (a little late)

My dad's name is Perry.

Sometimes we call him Perry the Platypus or Agent P. 

So of course, what 50 year old doesn't need a "Perry the Platypus" themed fiftieth birthday party, right?

A few decorations were in order:

I couldn't resist...

There were matching tags for everyone to wear for this one...

Of course, Toodles was precious. I still laugh every time Alana dresses the child in something white and she destroys it in two seconds. The kid is just like me in so many ways.

A lot of people rant and rave about how much us girls look like our mother. Well, I think Alana favors my Aunt Kathy more than anyone. Not just in looks, but in grace, kindness and love. They are the two greatest women I know.

My Uncle Gary ALWAYS loses his glasses and ALWAYS steals my Aunt Kathy's old pair. He is too dang cute. 

Sweet Per Bear. You are truly 50 years young. It was a great birthday party. Thanks for being such a great sport with my theme, associated decorations, and endless jokes all night long. 

What is that pose?

What's next year's theme?


  1. I am always fascinated with your blog. Look pretty good in them glasses!

  2. 50th birthday! Seems amazing. Thanks a ton for these brilliant photos. You know this post was way too helpful for me too because I also am planning on hosting the surprise 50th birthday for my life partner. Would be hosting this bash at one of her favorite hillside event locations near the city.
