“The Surprise” Highlight Reel

  Meet Dad & Drea: 


  As I mentioned in an earlier post, they arrived Friday, and surprised me with a random, totally un-expected, appearance from far-away Florida. 

  We have enjoyed 6 fun-filled days with them, just hanging out and catching up.  It’s nice to have guests that “get” the difficulty of hauling around little ones.  They were so respectful of our daily routine, being content just to hang out at home, and do whatever they could to help us stay on a normal schedule during their days here.

  They are on their way to Arizona for 2 weeks of biking (not the pedal kind) in the mountains and desserts of the southwest. 


We are trying to convince them to stop back through “on the way” back home, but I am not sure we have succeeded yet.  🙂

  Without further ado, here is the Highlight Reel of an amazing week:


New bunks for the boy’s room brought from Florida…..

A new to me dining set, again from Dad & Drea’s furniture store.  Happy Early 30th Birthday to me! I’m in LOVE!


Fun in the sun!

  Thanks for coming to see us, Papa & Drea! You guys always bless us with your generosity, laughter and fun-loving spirits.  We miss you already!!!!!

Safe travels & all our love,

  3. You have one beautiful family, Tonya! It looks like y’all really, really enjoyed your time together. I know how special it is to be able to spend a big(ish) chunk of time with family when you live hundreds of miles apart. And that new dining table is gorgeous!!

    • Thanks, Nikki! It was AMAZING! The hardest part was saying good-bye. 😦 My 7 year old sobbed her eyes out. Heart-wrenching to say the least! Anyhow, everytime I go into my kitchen I have to grin at my new table. They could not have picked a better surprise for my early 30th b-day present!!!!
