The Big Three Oh

30thbirthday-3181  30thbirthday-3332 

On Saturday, Dave and Ewa hosted a birthday bash for Eric with about 50 of our friends and family. I can’t think of a better way to ring in a 30th birthday celebration. We all had a blast.

I managed to lug around my DSLR for the entire day, despite my best efforts to spill drinks on it, smash it with a volleyball, and abandon it next to large fire pits. Check out the album below for my favourite pictures of the celebration.

Aww, what a fun time! I’m partial to the pooch lying there all calm…waiting…”I KNOW they’ll drop something off their plates and when they do, I’ll be here!” Since to see lots of people got “lei’d”! (Seriously, someone was going to say it, why not me?)

Happy belated Birthday Eric!

Hi Angie – this whole blog thing is so strange! I have your blog as my homepage and look at it daily – love your recipes and photography. Although I have never spoken to you, I have this strange emotional attachment to you and Eric as a result and got a little teary eyed at the birthday pictures! I know that sounds really weird. Anyways – thanks for your blog. Angie


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 13, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Aw that’s sweet! I know what you mean, I feel that way with many of the blogs I read too. :)

Happy Belated Bday to Eric and looks like FUN! Can’t believe he’s such a young’en :) Not sure what his actual bday was but if it was Friday, that was Natl Smores Day here in the US. A great day to be born, I’d say!

Looks like you guys had an awesome time!! Kevin just turned 30 last month… it was so hard for him. I think the best way to get over it all is just have a huge celebration!

Happy Birthday to Eric!!


Sara August 14, 2012 at 9:35 am

I love the one of you painting your toenails. It’s such a humanizing shot, something we all do, and yet it’s so rare to have it captured like that. It reminds me that you’re a person too, Angela (even though you’re more like a superhero).

Food looks amazing as always.


Helen August 14, 2012 at 11:40 am

Happy belated birthday, Eric!

Looks like you all had a blast!


brianna August 14, 2012 at 1:41 pm
