Over the weekend my superhero of a Dad surprised my Mom for her 50th birthday by flying the entire family out to Las Vegas! (And really, my Mom looks like she's 25 doesn't she?) It's been so sad lately having my sister live in California and my family nearly 2 hours away, so coming together (even if it only was for a short time) was such a great surprise for everyone!
Thursday night, only my Dad and Mom went together to Vegas as her "first" surprise. Then on Friday, my youngest thirteen year old sister and my grandparents surprised them in the morning- my Mom couldn't even believe it! Thinking she was done with surprises, my Dad hits her two more times with Erick and I, then shortly followed with my middle sister, Becca.
All in all it was a fantastic weekend taking in as many sights, sounds, and experiences we could together while still managing to have a few relaxing hours in the amazing pools of the Cesar's Palace hotel. I'm sure it will be something my Mom will remember forever, and for someone who usually sucks at surprises... my Dad rocked this.
