We surprised my mother for her 60th birthday this weekend. We drove Wednesday night and got to my parents at 1:00 AM! We snuck into the house really quiet as to not wake up my mother. My dad and brother knew we were coming so it wasn't a total surprise to them. The next morning, Thursday, was my mother's birthday. She came downstairs and didn't see my children on the couch and they went up to her and gave her a big hug. Scared her a little bit but she was so surprised. Then on friday my brother, John, and his daughter Naomi flew in from San Francisco. I told my mom we needed to get my friend Katie from the airport. She was so shocked to see my brother standing on the curb. It was such a great surprise! Then to top it off we had a surprise party for her Friday night. It has been a great weekend. The cousins have played together and we have gone swimming, even though the pool is a little CHILLY! Home tomorrow to get back into the busy routine we have.
