If you follow me on Facebook, you probably already know I just got back from a little trip. Where to?? Well, So Dak of course!
This trip was so chock full of surprises, it's impossible to tell them all, but the Cliff's Notes version of this post is that my dad has been having a rough go after surgery, a near death experience and a cancer-is-still-in-there report when all was said and done. He's been needing some love...grandbaby love.
Now the part of the surprise that I'm at liberty to tell (some of the surprise is confidential) is that we showed up for a long weekend...just showed up! It was amazingly awesome!
Before my Aberdeen peeps get in my business about not hanging out, this was a quick trip and a family-only trip kinda trip. It was rushed, but casual still.
Movies, dogs, fields, food, grilled burgers, ticks (yes, ticks), gut laughs, group self portraits, mud, dog hair, coffee, sleeping in...that kinda weekend.
This was our first time back since October's big move. I thought the goodbyes would be more bitter, I thought more would have changed, I worried there would be awkwardness. It was decidedly opposite of all that. Some happy tears at the airport mixed with excited expectation talk of their visit to NC in a few weeks were more the topic on the floor.
So here's your Happy Day Challenge #6: Surprise Somebody!!
Send flowers to a friend, show up in the lunchroom at school for lunch, leave a little gift on your hubby's pillow (which I will not be doing because my hubby forgot everything I told him to do while I was gone...ahem), do something fun like that!
Also, a Dad note: he had appointments at his oncologist yesterday...and guess what? There's no cancer after all!!! Surprise!!!
Maybe Doc is secretly doing the Happy Day Project, ya think?? :)
So now, sweet baby girls, if you were able to check out for a bit this week and get some alone time, let us know! I'll be sharing link ups on my facebook page.
Before you go, here's a quick vid of our surprise in action. My brother was in on the jig to help me organize it. My parents were thinking they were meeting just Jesse for lunch and then we allll showed up. They're just sittin' there staring out the windows...oh, we got 'em good!
Just remember to link up your direct link, not just your blog url. Also, if you could kindly add the Happy Day button from the sidebar, I'd love you forever. Thanks! :)
