I mentioned last week on my FB wall that I was sneaking around, participating in the planning of a super-duper fun surprise. Now I can finally reveal what the surprise was :o)
Grandpa Rolfe (Kev's dad) and I conspired together for the kid's BIG Christmas gift this year... a few months early. We decided it would be super-awesome to a.) get them all brand new bikes (which none of them have ever had before) and b. give them to them now, rather than at Christmas time when they can't really use them. We decided to be sneaky and give them to them today, on the last day of school. That part was a little tricky so the bikes were purchased and parked in daughter #3's dining room in town for the last week, and I brought them home today while Kev took Ruth out for lunch. I hid them in the garage and when the kids got home from school, Kev took them all out for ice cream to celebrate the last day of school, while I attached the giant gift tags and lined them up in the driveway.
