We had great friends and family that were gracious enough to help celebrate this milestone. Joel was completely surprised - no clue anything was being planned.
Here are some pictures from the fun night.
Joel's first view of the party attenders - while they were yelling surprise.
Sanders saying something like: We got you :)
Joel's 30" party pizza for his 30th birthday. This came from a local pizza place (our favorite). Since Joel saw one when we first moved here he has wanted to get one. It's not everyday that a 30" pizza is doable, so I thought this would be the perfect occasion!
Here you can get a good idea of just how large the pizza actually is.
Uncle Joel and Harris - Harris' first trip to GA.
Blowing out his candles!
The Oakley clan that was in attendance. We are very blessed with a great family. I was thrilled to find out that his family would be able to make the long drive to make this night even more special.
