Yesterday- as the day went on I had to keep my thoughts tame...what could the big surprise be...
my imagination went places i shouldn't have...maybe it was the slight fever...finally i asked Kristen so who planned all this Dad or you? She said then I knew it wouldn't be a new car...or Scott winning the lottery. I even caught Jennifer who was planning to go to a friends house so how "big is this surprise"...she said "well it's a nice surprise mom" but not BIG!

Anticipation mounted as Scott called and said he would be late...I just wanted to get in bed! About four he called and I finally got to speak to him...he asked if I know what's going on and if I was up to it...I said all I know is that you and I are going out...If your taking me to dinner I can handle that!

Well it is dinner and more if you think you can handle it...then he said I'm make sure you get rest. Once he was home Jessica, Kristen's friend came over and they said "Dad you guys can go".

We left and he said do you want some crab? Yes, and some hot soup!" I didn't see that they had put a bag of clothes in the back of his van...We went to Lumiere Place and ate all the crab you can eat...then checked in the hotel where I had a long undisturbed bath then sleep.

When I woke this morning room service had eggs, hash browns, bacon and toast. It was all such a nice surprise...but I wondered why and when I got home they said "because we love you and wanted you to rest"

Aren't they the sweetest!
