Marty's actual birthday was two weeks after his suprise party. Another reason, he said he didn't suspect that I was up to something. We ended up having a small group of his close guy friends from "up here" out to my parents' ranch for the weekend. We shot skeet, fished, rode horses and enjoyed the country.
After the boys locked him in one of the skeet towers (behind him).
Beautiful Texas Panhandle Afternoon.
The boys decided to "chap" (beat him with a pair of chaps, typically worn when riding horseback) Marty 30 times instead of birthday spankings. We "lured" him in by telling him I wanted a group shot in front of the water tower. It took all of them to take him down.
He was so unsuspecting...
The banner made multiple appearances.
I think everyone enjoyed themselves! Hopefully, the birthday boy even though he suffered a little abuse over the weekend.
