Know what's a total bummer...to take about 100 pictures and find that only half of them came out. I don't know what was going on with my camera (or the operator) but a lot of the pictures I took at hubby's surprise party were horrible! His sister took a bunch of pictures too and I'm really hoping hers turned out better than mine.
But...I did find a few that were worth sharing.
Shoot...even the goods ones are harder to see once uploaded. Well, here's what I got. This button says: "I'm not old I'm a recycled teenager"
The wind decided to blow on Saturday...and I do mean blow! I don't know how hard it was actually blowing, but it had been forecast to be out of the west at 25. The kids, however, weren't the least bit deterred by the whitecaps pounding them and they stayed in the water all afternoon. (Just as a point of reference - the river is about three miles wide where our house is located so it actually seems more like a lake than a river)
I really wish you could see this picture better. Each of these guys has three beers. Craig, on the left, has them all in one hand. And I don't think they were getting them for anyone other than themselves! LOL
Our oldest son Dusty (on the left) went all out on wrapping his present. First, he wrapped it in the Target bag he carried it out of the store in. Then, he wrapped it in two sweatshirts! But he tried and that's what counts.
I really wish I'd had a picture of hubby's face when he looked across the kitchen and saw our oldest son standing there. He lives in Raleigh and we don't get to see him nearly as much as we'd like (I think this is the 3rd time we've seen him since Christmas). He was scheduled to work but on Friday night was able to get someone to cover for him so he could come to the party. That was gift enough for hubby!
So tell me, have you ever planned a surprise party? Did you pull it off? Was it worth all the effort? LOL
Have a fantastic day!!
Peace and Love,
