Imagine My Surprise!!!

I had the surprise of my life last weekend!! My son decided to make the very long trip from Alabama to Texas unannounced.

This is something that I would never expect my son to do. He's not a surprise kinda guy so you can only imagine both mine and Summer's reaction when we saw him peering through the front foyer window!!

Yes, we were very excited, happy, blubbering idiots. I have never been so happy to see an unexpected guest.

I have always heard that absence makes the heart grow fonder but I have found the longer I live away from my son the more I think it's very unnatural for us all to live so far apart. After all, there is not many of us...we need to stick together as much as possible.

Lucas brought his new mountain bike to test out on the trails here. We also spent our weekend hanging out swimming, watching the night sky through the telescope, and of course eating.

Although it was Father's Day Weekend I think I got the gift.♥

We are hoping to see him back 4th of July weekend. Hopefully his recent long trip didn't discourage him from wanting to come back so soon...we will see.

  1. What a wonderful surprise! Two years ago, right after my last granddaughter was born, my daughter-in-law decided to send my son and the 5 week old baby to see me! He arrived on Sat. before Fathers Day and went back on Monday. She knew my arms were aching to hold that precious bundle ............ otherwise I wouldn't have seen her until she was 6 months old! I love surprises!
