Thankful Thursday

I am thankful my surprise went off without too many problems. Well, no problem with the surprising-my-sister-part when I KNOCKED ON HER DOOR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT to show her Kev and I had secretly flown to Maine.

But there were many problems with storms in Newark, seats in the emergency aisle (I hate the ones that don't recline, but these were ok), gate changes we didn't know about and general airport chaos.

The point is though, my sister didn't really know we were coming. I sent her a picture message from my phone of a sign in the Portland airport, and she said she was confused but that she figured it would all be revealed next week. Then I sent her another picture message of me and Kev standing in front of a "Welcome to Portland" sign at baggage claim. Sly.

She wrote me a text that she was so confused and having anxiety attacks, blah blah blah so I didn't even write her back. Mwa hahaha.

30 minutes later I showed up at her bedroom door after creeping stealthily up the stairs around the dogs. It was perfection. Even if she had an inkling of what was going on, I'm still thrilled that Sophia's bday surprise was successful overall.

The other surprises include, but are not limited to: a trip to Quebec for adventures in the wild on a zip line, beaches in Maine, shopping in Freeport, walking doggies (princess Baci and semi-princess Zoe as I like to call them), family fun time and so much more. It is SO good to be in Maine for a summer trip. I haven't been back in the summer for years and years, and Kev has only been to Maine in the winter.

And since I'm in Maine, blogging with be super sporadic. I know I have lots of Pink House photos to upload, and as soon as Kev and I get our hands on a camera we'll have lots of Maine/Canada photos to upload... so there will be lots of photos and snippets later.
For now, I'm signing off until whenever I feel like returning because this is my one and only vacation this summer and Kev and I need to squeeze all the fun out of it that we can!!
