The summer is flying by!
We spent the weekend in Austin celebrating my oldest daughter's 40th birthday (yikes!). The family surprised her on Friday night - my son flew in from San Francisco; my youngest daughter and her boyfriend came from Chicago; another daughter, her husband and 2-yr old Drew came from Albuquerque and we drove down. The ruse was that my husband and I were taking her to dinner but everyone (including two friends and their husbands) met her there. She had no idea anyone was in town and I think she was truly surprised.
On Saturday we surprised her again with a "Duck Tour." She has always dissed this and said she would never be caught dead doing it. She thought we were meeting for brunch and was not a happy camper when she found out the truth. But she was a good sport and, I think, had fun. The grand boys had a blast, especially with the "quackers" handed out.
The rest of the weekend was laid back, hanging out at Kelly's house and just enjoying being together.
It was a great weekend and, as always, fun to have the entire family together.
