Tonight we had a surprise party for one of our friends. It was just a little get together with only a small group of people but the birthday guy was definitely surprised.
It was one of our friend's hubby's birthday coming up next week and she wanted to throw him a big surprise party but ended up just doing a little one because she thought he'd enjoy it more with fewer people.
Our friend told her hubby that we were coming over for supper. I think she made it sound like it would be a play date for our daughters who are practically the same age.
Their nephew and his family had stopped by. The birthday guy had commented that the nephew and his family should stay for supper too but he figured they probably already had plans. Little did he know their plans were to stay.
Our friend had already planned to pretend she forgot something at the store to get her hubby out of the house but it turns out, she really DID forget something so off to the store he went. Great how that worked out, huh?
While he was at the store we arrived and got some streamers hung up and some balloons blown up. There were also a few birthday signs hung on the front of the house that he would see as soon as he pulled in the driveway.
I didn't see his face when he got back, but apparently he was smiling. He didn't have a clue as to what was going on so it was definitely a surprise! I think he enjoyed the evening!
