What a nice day it was!

It was a nice day yesterday. A perfect day for my planned surprise birthday party for my Sweetest. It supposed to be a surprise but apparently, his radar is too strong to keep it a secret so he knows what's gonna happen except for some cute details.

The Gregoires, so happy to see them together in one picture.

Well, it was a nice day yesterday and the day before that. Oh I am so loving the weather up here in Maine. Can't complain. So there I was crunch on precious time to get my act together and had successfully delivered a lobster cookout birthday party for my Sweetest complete with party favors. If I didn't forget the party hats it would have been perfect. hahaha.
My Veggie/Fruit Salad Bar with blue and green color scheme.
It was indeed a nice day yesterday but then, I can't brag about it all by myself because my step-daughters did an amazing job in helping out too.
I call this, The Sweet Bar which the girls helped me put up.
 The Birthday Boy, blowing his candles.
It was just a nice day yesterday and the girls did great cakes for their father and they too shared the joy they brought to their father.
 Heather's yummy triple berries cheesecake.
 Steff's Boston Cream cake specially made for Dad.
 And the Birthday cupcakes.

And on a nice day such as yesterday it was indeed a great day for a cookout. Thanks for my Father-in-Law who loves grilling. We all enjoyed the chicken wings while waiting for the lobstah and corns to cook.
 The sweet corn.
 Another famous Maine's pride - the steamers.
 And of course, Maine's pride - the LOBSTAH!

Yes, it was a nice day yesterday to celebrate my Sweetest special day with our closest friends and family.
 Digging in with a smile.
 Enjoying the feast with closest friends and family.
 Advance Happy Birthday, Lover Boy. I love you.
My Sweetest.
