Friday Fun (VIII) - Double Shot for Dad's 60th! (and a mini-update)

Happy Friday everyone! I'm in Phoenix this weekend with my family, and some of my dad's family (three sisters and a brother-in-law). I was a surprise guest for the weekend - my dad's two youngest sisters paid for my flight to come out for the weekend. Yesterday, I went to a baseball game with all of them and my mom (my dad didn't know I was in town yet) - it was so fun to see the Mariners play and get a suntan while I was at it! ALSO - I got to see Ken Griffey Jr play again in an M's jersey and it was great! The final score: M's 18, Padres 3! WOOHOO!

Then, last night we all met up for dinner at a great Mexican restaurant in town (Macayo) and I surprised my dad by approaching the table as a waitress. "Hi, I'm Tiffani and I'll be your waitress tonight. Would anyone like anything to drink?" My dad looked over and was about to say, "My daughter's name is Tiffani" to the waitress... when he realized it was me! :) It was a fun surprise and a really fun evening.

I've been doing homework nonstop (mostly) today and at 5 am stopping to let the b-day festivities continue. We are having everyone over for a BBQ on the patio and some hilarious birthday shenanigans that my aunts have cooked up.

In honor of my dad's upcoming 60th bday, I decided to post TWO fun friday videos today!

The first is one I just discovered today - but since I love 1) public dancing, 2) the sound of music, and 3) coordinated dance numbers - this was a perfect one to post. Also, my dad and his family (and my family ) all love musicals, so in honor of the Riggers clan.... enjoy.

The second video is an oldie (from last year) but a goodie and is a video of over 200 improv actors all freezing in place at the same time one day in Grand Central Station, NY. Its a pretty cool prank!
