Guys and Ladies, I had THE best surprise ever. Today is my birthday yes, but yesterday is when I had my BIG day! When I wrote yesterday's blog and said I had to get cracking..little did I know that a couple hours later, I would get a birthday shocker a day in advance.
My youngest was coming to take me to lunch as Saturday was easier what with commitments on Sunday. So when he came in the door he said to hurry, he was hungry. I went to the car, and there was my oldest boy. Not a surprise there really as I half way expected it. So I piled into the back and off we went. When we got to the restaurant which he insisted we were going to despite my suggestions otherwise, and took my gifts in TOO..I tried to dissuade them. Seemed so unnecessary. Let's open them at home I said. As we went in..instead of waiting to be seated, the sons led the way back and I thought.."that kid looks just like my grandson! Just like him!" I was going to point that out to my youngest but he was hurtling forward at the speed of light. Then I saw cameras! That WAS my grandson and he was videotaping me and the rest of us as we steam rolled into the restaurant. There was a surprise party and even my son and grandson from Charlotte had driven all the way here to be present! I was shocked! I loved it. There was a centerpiece of, what else but Hello Kitty..and those blowy thingies that you blow into and they unroll..just a fun loud party and I was caught completely unaware. Best birthday (and shocker) I ever had..bar none. So happy birthday to me today and yesterday which was the birthday eve so to speak. My son and g-son are gone now..he's a teacher and work awaits tomorrow and lesson planning and grading all the way home (g-son doing the grading) and here I am with a big smile and a wonderful memory of the big reveal yesterday. I was shown the text messages too that flew back and forth before I got there. Cars were parked where I couldn't see to spoil the surprise before we got there.
I am blessed! Here's a few of those blowy thingies and the centerpiece and my grandson.
