In December, we weren’t sure if dad would see his 55th birthday. The surgeon had us worried that he might not come out of surgery. It was the realistic way of looking at it. Sure there was hope and prayers but in all honesty, we were SCARED.
But here he is, thriving and doing awesome. Oh and turning fifty-freaking-five!
So what did we do to celebrate?
Chris and I took my Mom & Dad out for lunch out in a little well established Fish House on the water. It was perfect! At the time both my Mom & Dad had NO clue about our news.
So what did we do?
I gave my Dad his birthday card and watched him get all excited over his Walgreen gift card I got him. HE LOVES WALGREENS. Mom was laughing when he opened it. Then he saw IT.
I wish I could have gotten the SURPRISE FACE. The 2nd picture he was looking at my Mom for the OMG response, but the funny thing is, she had NO CLUE. She just thought he was excited over his damn Walgreens gift card.
So I told him to give Mom the card so she could read it and that was the end. Tears, hugs and TONS of excitement. It was SO much fun to tell them this way and for them to be here in person. They were over the phone last time when we announced we were pregnant before while they watched a slideshow.
This was just perfect.
So Happy Belated Birthday Dad. I wish I could have posted this in my busy week post, didn’t want you to think I forgot about you. I just had to tell the story as a whole because it’s that much fun!
