A surprise for Kait!

Emma pulled off a BIG SURPRISE last Thursday for her best friend, Kaitlyn. Kait thought she was invited to go out to breakfast and go shopping for her birthday with her Mom, Emma and I. Instead, Emma had arranged for a group of her 7 dearest friends to surprise her with a day at Disneyland! The girls all arrived here early at 8:00 am and hid in the trailer outside. When Kait arrived, I told her that Emma was in the trailer (putting some "stuff" inside for their sleepover). When Kait opened the trailer door she heard a resounding "SURPRISE!!!!" It was absolutely adorable - she was simply shocked. After lots of hugs, we all piled into the Brooks' van (that Diane graciously let us borrow for the day -it seats 11). After a fun filled day at the Happiest Place on Earth, we ran through In-n-Out Burger for: 1 grilled cheese with grilled onions, lettuce and tomato, 1 hamburger with pickles and no onion, 2 cheeseburgers with no onion, 1 plain cheeseburger, 1 hamburger with no tomato or onion, 1 cheeseburger with grilled onions and no tomato, and 1 plain grilled cheese, 6 orders of fries, 7 waters and a diet coke. Funny! I have to hand it to the good folks at In-n-Out - they got the order exactly right! But wait - the evening wasn't over yet! The girls all sang Happy Birthday over Angel Face cake (actually Angel Food Cake but Kait named it that when she was little) with fresh berries and whipped cream. Then came presents. Then came a movie and sleepover in the trailer. In the morning, after breakfast it was time to return all the girls and Diane's van. A fun and memorable time was had by all! More pics are on Emma's blog.

I tell you, this has to be one of the biggest perks of being home schooled! But I'm sure it was hard after all that fun to hit the books again on Friday!


and after!!
