A few weeks back, we were invited to attend a birthday party down in Orange County. When I looked at the address, I noticed it was just 2 miles from where my husband works. So, I decided not to tell him about the party, and to take the kids to surprise him afterwards.
I knew that it was a little risky; after all, he could be on a call! But he would eventually get back, so we would wait… and boy did we wait! After an hour, I finally got a hold of him on the phone only to discover he was at a different station that day! So we drove another half hour to the next station.
Long story short, we ended up seeing him first at the grocery store, so we bought lunch together then headed to the station for a short but fun afternoon visit.
This was really Malachi’s first visit that he remembers. I wish we lived closer, (but not enough to move, Honey — sorry!) The kids had a blast and we took way too many pictures!
I promise these were just a handful of the shots we took that day. Despite the setbacks, we may try to pull another surprise visit in the future!
