...and the celebration continues...

In addition to our celebration of Dad's birthday yesterday, we continued with another BIG surprise today! I dropped Charlee off at my parents house so they could "babysit" while Adam and I were supposed to go on a date. Little did Dad know that our date involved picking Andrew and Amy up from the airport to bring them back to surprise Dad with a weekend visit. Of course, we couldn't just show up at the front door without bearing a birthday dessert of some sort so my mom baked a cherry crisp (Dad's favorite) and placed it in a cooler outside complete with candles and a lighter to finish it off. We lit the candles...

... and rang the doorbell. We were greeted with a very surprised birthday boy! I believe the word coming out of his mouth at this particular moment was, "Wow!", as he took it all in.
Still not sure what to think...
A happy guy...
Explaining to him how we accomplished everything...

Ah, the beauty of a successful surprise...there's nothing better!
