The Big 5-0 in Style

As most of you know my dear, sweet, wonderful husband turned 50 last Friday. He requested a birthday party in Disneyland and we were very happy to comply. We arrived at the Happiest Place on Earth on Wednesday and partied hard for 3 days and nights. We dragged our tired butts home on Saturday afternoon after a wild birthday party on Friday.

Our first stop on Friday morning was the City Hall on Main Street. Dave was given a lovely pin to wear and he wore it all day. Everyone told him "Happy Birthday" all day long. It was wonderful, he loved all the attention and I loved him having it. He was having a ball!!

Look how happy he looks....what more could a 50 year old birthday boy want...two beautiful children, a wonderful wife and a birthday party in Disneyland!!
Of course a birthday kiss from Minnie was the icing on the cake!!
Aladdin even wished Dave happy blessings.
A birthday cupcake with one candle....just perfect for Dave. When you are 50 your lung power is greatly diminished!!
We went all out for Dave's birthday....we ordered the works and Disneyland did not disappoint. They put on a huge, gorgeous fireworks display just for Dave's 50th birthday!!The sky was alight with sparklers.

The celebration was spectacular. The party was unforgettable.

The kids had a wonderful time....they wanted to party all night. Unfortunately the birthday boy was up way past his bedtime (look at that huge yawn in the background!!)
We got back to our hotel around midnight that night. The party had started at 7 that morning. It was the best birthday party I have ever gone to!!!

Happy Birthday, Dave. What a great post. Looks as if everyone had a wonderful time.

how fun! Happy Birthday and you guys really know how to do it right!

I wanted to say your dh has the most inviting warm and kind face I have ever seen. He just exudes happiness, but then again, look who he's married to and where he's celebrating.
but seriously, just by looking at him he looks like he's a happy man. I would pick him out of a crowd and ask him for anything, could I borrow a quarter, do you mind jumping my car battery, could you hold this! For realz!

All those photos just radiate love and fun and happiness...Happy Birthday David, from the real CRUELLA.

All the photos are fabulous, but the one with the castle and the fireworks around it is spectacular. I can never get night shots like that. How'd you dodat?

What fun!! It looks like everybody enjoyed his birthday as much as he did - I will never for the life of me understand why some people don't like birthdays just because they are getting older :D

Y'all know how to birthday!

Happy Birthday Dave!
