Spontaneous Surprises. They’re the best!
It all started last week. Daniel and I went for a jog at a nearby park while the older girls had their piano lesson. “Thanksgiving is next week! What should we do?” “Want to go up north?” “Yeah! Let’s go and surprise everybody!”
So, that was that. We didn’t tell the kids we were going to see Grandma and Grandpa. We didn’t tell Grandma and Grandpa we were coming. We only let my brother and his girlfriend in on the secret since Thanksgiving would be celebrated with them.
It was a short, but fun trip. Best of all, we were with family!
It was suppose to be cold and rainy. Instead, it was beautiful! Who says California doesn’t have a fall season?
There was a badminton court. Yes, my favorite sport! I was a high school badminton coach once upon a time… fun days!
Leave it to Allison to want to do a “science experiment.” She wanted to see if birdies float.
They also kept themselves entertained by going on a “nature walk” in this beautiful backyard and collecting “goodies.”
In fact, we spent most of the afternoon outside. It was fabulous!
I’m SO thankful for the wonderful family God has blessed me with!! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
