I just have to tell you all about my surprise weekend. Two weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 25 wedding anniversary. We are not ones to have a whole lot of hoopla about anniversaries and birthdays, so we exchanged cards and he promised to take me out to dinner this past Friday. Now why it was two weeks after our day did not even factor in. We have to arrange baby sitters and such and plus we are just so busy at work during the week we have very little time to think. My middle son texted me on Thursday that he was coming home for the weekend, not odd for him but odd in the fact it was just a week before his spring break. I was thrilled to see him regardless. The Aunts were scheduled to pick up Little Buddy at 5:30 Friday night for an adventure so we could go out to dinner. Well the surprise was on me. When we got to the restaurant I saw my three SIL's a dear friend, all of my sons including my oldest straight from Ohio, and my eldest sons two best friends that I feel are part mine. I cried my eyes out. Here we are, and no my sons are not 7 feet tall they are standing on a step. My husband really pulled this huge surprise off!
Here I am with all my boys, which is exactly what I call them all, my boys. I am so blessed that my husband thought to surprise me this way. Bringing those I care about so much together to celebrate with us. My sister Claudia and Don were also invited but could not attend due to her work schedule on the broadway show Anastasia. We had such a lovely time, the food was delicious and being with those I love was such a great gift to me. My oldest was here for less than 48 hours. He is still job hunting and now is thinking of returning to Florida to job search. We will see what happens in that department as his serious girlfriend is in Columbus.
Little Buddy was so happy to have both of his brothers at home. He pointed to them several times saying, "You are my brother and you are my brother." Here he is with Mr. 19.
He got to play with them and just be near them, that is a real treat these days when we are all so far apart. Even Max had a wonderful time with all of us home even for just over a day.
Here I am friends, wrinkles and all squeezing my precious boy.
He had Dr. Seuss Day this week at school to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. Little Buddy loves a good hat and he has worn this one all over the place.
But as they say all good things must come to an end. This one woke up this morning feeling ill. He was complaining about, "A frog in my froat." And then he got the, "Frow ups." Now that is serious!!! Mr. 23 is already back in Ohio, and Mr. 19 is heading back to Orlando tomorrow. Still I am blessed to have these amazing memories of my surprise weekend.
