Surprise!

We managed to pull off a surprise party for Mom's 82nd birthday today.  It was awesome.  One sister drove in from Colorado and they had the hard part:  how to get my parents to my brother's home 70 miles away.  They succeeded. I took the day off so I picked up my other sister from the airport this afternoon, prepared food and we all met together at my brother's house.  He recently had knee surgery and isn't traveling very well yet so it was easier for him to host even though I was cooking.
It was a glorious success.  The look on Mom's face when she realized all of us were there was absolutely priceless. We see each other but it seems difficult to get us all in the same place at the same time.
Here's the whole gang!  A grand time was had by all!

    1. Even Dad didn't know about it. It is nearly impossible to tell him without Mom finding out. You can't call just him, they share an email account, etc.
