Birthday’s are made for surprises.
And Angel Girl is the hardest to surprise!
But this year – Pedro pulled it off!
It was the Thursday night before her birthday – and she suspecting nothing.
Pedro gathered up four cousins and they drove the two hours to our house stuffed in Pedro’s car.
They hid the car and planned the epic surprise.
Angel Girl got home from work, wondered why dad was grilling so many hamburgers, put down her water bottle in the kitchen, rounded the corner to the dining room and jumped out of her skin at the sight of Pedro and the cousins waiting for her!
They had a hilarious supper, followed by crazy dance moves in the driveway and a wild adventure to the abandoned house and low water crossing.
Poison ivy, bug bites, photo shoots, and much laughter.
They spent the night eating popcorn and rice krispie bars while watching old VHS movies that were favorites years ago.
And were up at first light to be on the road to make it back to the city to work.
A short night and a long drive.
But they had almost fourteen hours of jam-packed, fun-filled wonderfulness.
Happy 18th birthday Angel Girl!
