Forever's Gonna Start Tonight

Last Saturday the Morris Family got down! That's right. We totally partied. All because Dale's brother Ken turned 40.

It was actually a surprise party that his wife Phoebe planned for him. Ken likes to sing in a band and he thought he and the band were singing for somebody else's party. When the curtains opened, there we were, his whole family yelling "SURPRISE!" He totally didn't see it coming.
Here's the birthday boy singing some rad tunes:

When they were done the D.J. took over. Let's just say certain members of the family have some dance moves that can't be replicated nor duplicated.

My favorite part of the night came when Rob and Ken blessed us all with an amazing rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart. A song which should only be attempted by professionals and sung in all seriousness.

I also took video footage of it but it's like 9 minutes long and I can't figure out how to edit it so I will try to convey the essence of the powerful moment through pictures and lyrics.

"Turnaround, every now and then I get a
little bit lonely and you're never coming around "
"And I need you now tonight"
"I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks"
"I really need you tonight!!!"
"Forever's gonna start tonight!!!"

This is so awesome. Thanks sooooo much for your the use of your wonderful photographic talents! You are AMAZING! Love you!

Wow, your pictures put mine to shame. But, what do you expect from a $100 camera and an inexperienced photographer, right? I'm sure we can come up with lots of things to celebrate so we have another excuse to get down...good times.

That is so funny! I love the photo with the blonde in the background....she needs a lighter to hold up and it would be perfect. Fun family
