Brandon's 30th Birthday

Travis' brother, Brandon just turned 30 a couple of weeks ago and we had a great time celebrating.  My mother-in-law flew out to surprise him at the surprise party we had planned for him.  And let me tell you, there were SEVERAL times where we all almost blew it.  Unfortunately, someone did blow it that Debbie was in town, so in order to throw Brandon off we had a "fake" surprise lunch with the fam and Debbie before the actually surprise party.  

Kim had planned a day with Brandon, so he wasn't really thrown off much by the fact that she had a shirt made for him and had him blind folded throughout the day.  Here they are heading in for the "fake" surprise lunch.  He had no idea we were all standing around him taking pictures:

Entering the room for the real surprise party:

We didn't end up taking a group shot with everyone who came, but there were about 50 friends and family who all came out to celebrate Brandon's birthday.  We had such a great time!  Here is a picture of the family and a couple of the friends who helped pull off the party:

And then there is the video...
Our good friend from college, Brent plays cello for OneRepublic, he and Brandon had been working on a song.  At the time, Brandon didn't want anyone to hear the song, but Brent's intentions were to use the song for this video for his party.  
So, I give you "Party All The Time" sung by the one and only Brandon Collins and performed by the Collins' family and a few close friends:

Happy 30th Birthday Brandon!!! 
We love you!!!!
