Luke's Rock'en 30th Part II

The day after the fabulous party at Zaza, I met with Luke and Faith again for a photo shoot with him and his military friends on the McKinney Square.
Such a crazy fun group!!    

First, we needed a cup of coffee and maybe some ice cream :)

Then to select a wall for our first pose...This one was the winner.

I kept telling them to scatter, and they they kept going in clusters!  I learned the correct term is disperse.

Some of his friends with Luke when they first met.

But in no time at all, they came to realize what an amazing person this Luke guy is!

 Apparently, this is a reenactment to an older photo/joke (don't try this at home)

Marching off into the Sunset

And I'll end with this shot of Luke with his wonderful wife, Faith :).  Thanks again for making me a part of your birthday!

Luke's Rock'en 30th Part I

Luke has turned the big 3-0.
And everyone is very happy and excited about this, not only because Luke is a great guy, but because he is such a wonderful and talented friend, son, brother, and husband that survived a horrific accident only a handful of years ago.  As the toasts were given before the cake, I was struck by all the love that Luke has given and in this moment was receiving back.  I knew Luke myself when we were kids.  I didn't talk to him much, mostly 'cause he was older than me...and I thought he seemed a little...different.  I was not alone in thinking so!  Luke is very different!  Luke is and has always been an incredibly amazing artist (who is being published!), a computer genius, the kind of guy who never gets angry at a person, and is just the best kind of friend a person can have.
Faith, his wife, was especially happy for the day!  Which is why she put together this fabulous Asian style party at the hotel Zaza!!!

I was amazed to find a huge bucket of fortune cookies all including a little fact about the birthday boy inside.

This cake is extra cool!  On top are two characters from Luke's comic, Seven Percent.  And the logo is on all the cupcakes :D.

Luke really loved his cake!

Really loved it!!
