Surprise Florida Trip

Well, I'm starting off out of order, but these are the pictures I have ready to share.
Despite my thinking it was impossible, we actually surprised my mother-in-law, Shauna, for her 50th birthday by showing up unannounced.  Her husband, Ron, had also coordinated to have all of Curt's siblings there and her parents and her brother, Brent.
Now we've discussed how I don't personally like surprises, but I know others do (Shauna being one), so I was ecstatic that it went off without a hitch.

Curt and I flew in to Orlando Friday night and stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Hogie, then drove down to Curt's parent's home on Saturday morning.
We all coordinated and then showed up at the house while she was out grocery shopping...
And this was her face as she came in the door....priceless.

We had good family trash talk time and good phase 10 playing.

After church on Sunday we took the opportunity to take some family pictures.
Me, Curt, Katherine, Uncle Brent, Megan, Grandpa, Grandma, Shauna, Ron, Alison, Andrew, Jeff

It cracks me up how Grandpa is attacking Andrew here...

...and then acts all serious and stern in the very next frame.
The girls.

Jeepers, Curt, your little brother is huge! I met both your brothers briefly in Miami when I flew in from Valencia, but he was about two feet shorter then. You guys all look great.
