Mason planned a surprise birthday party at Hunter & Elise's place for Katie last night and it was oh so fun! Katie was surprised for real, the food was fantastic, and it was great fun to hang out with friends in the grass all evening.
We prepared food... then we waited.
And as they walked up the drive we all crammed into a tiny corner.
We were going to sing "surprise" in harmony but when push came to shove and the excitement began, temporary confusion set in and everyone just screamed whatever they could think of at her... "Surprise!" "Happy Birthday!" "Happy Surprise!" "Birthday!" "Katie!" "Boo!"
(something weird happened to this photo!)
Then we feasted!
All the fresh veggies from Pop's house were soooo tasty! I wish I had a garden!
Finally we took to the outdoors where we could chat and lounge for hours and hours.
