Hubbies 60th surprise party

Oh what a week and then day....
I was well ahead of planning and super organised the week before my hubbies birthday...
UNTIL.
My daughter got in her car after work one night and someone had put a pole or hammer through her side window of the car. It took 3 days to sort out. The next day my fridge stopped working on the morning of a big grocery shop. It was the time to start buying for my hubbies surprise birthday.
Well no food shopping could happen. 3 days later my fridge was fixed. With only 1 day to the party we had to shop and prepare all the food and then it needed to be hidden. What a job....
Birthday celebration morning is here. Hubby knew friends were getting together for his special race day in Broadford.. Thanks to some great organising through RED BALLOON. We had a great day..
Then home to relax. Or so he thought. NOPE, I had organised a surprise party. Everything went well and flowed beautifully.
The weather was superb....
Race day and birthday celebrations are finally here.
Jayden (new to the family), son Michael, brother Graeme,
Tony and good family friend Michael.
Here the 5 of them are ready to race.
How exciting.
Me, friend Michael, daughter Kristy, Jayden, friend Di and the racing car...
Tony all suited up.... He looks the racing driver part...
Tony fits in the car.. 
The family having some fun.
Tony with his son, daughter and her boyfriend Jayden.
Oh the city people are cold. My quilts are being put to good use... 
I have this friend down the road that made the cake I wanted. She did a great job.
 My hubby has a Harley and loves his leathers, he is 60, so this really went down well.
 It looks fabulous.

Tony having fun with his cake...,it was a hit
Thanks Keryn.. Look at this TRIFLE. They were a hit and so yummy. 
Dessert time at the party..
