Surprise Birthday Visit

Thursday after the park party hubs made me stay up and play rummy with him, then he made tea, and kept making me play cards and said I couldn't go to bed. He also said he couldn't tell me my birthday surprise yet, and he had promised to...then our buzzer rang and MY PARENTS CAME IN!!!! I cried, got mascara on my mom's shirt and hugged them for way too long! It was the PERFECT surprise! I've been feeling so so homesick for my family lately and it was just what I needed!
So sneaky too Joshua kept throwing me off the path, my parents scheduled a skype date on my birthday, my sister asked if her gift had come in the mail yet-- tricky people!

Then!!! They said we were going to San Juan Island for the weekend!
