    We pulled it off!!! My son, Anthony flew in late Thurs night. I told DH Firday night we were having dinner with Dan & Joe (other sons) on Joe's boat. He thought that was awesome...little did he know, we got on the boat and my son Anthony came up from the closed cabin and DH CRIED!!!! He couldn't believe he was here. Sat morning Anthony and his best friend took DH golfing while we finished the set up for his Birthday Party. They brought him back and it was Awesome!! We had a week-end full of memories and laughter. It felt like the old days when all my boys lived home and hung out with all their friends. As the Mom it was "priceless" seeing them all here again. I don't know when it will ever happen again so i hold these memories dear in my Heart. I am sure you guys know what i mean. Here are some pics.....

    I am so happy for you. I know that feeling so well. It is so seldom I get all four together. Usually, when one of them gets married. You will re-live each moment so often. God bless you and yours.

    Surprises are always nice. We pulled one over on my father in law. We bought a house about 15 miles from him after living two hours away for several years. We kept it a secret and got my brother in law to take him for a drive and stop at this house 'cause he thought he knew someone who lived here. My FIL was so surprised and pleased to have us closer - he is 86 years old.

    Wow, your faces say it all! I am so happy for you. I managed to get all 5 of our kids home to surprise my late husband on his 50th, and I remember how great it was to see his face. Good move, Mom!

    Its just a MOM thing having everyone together ! LOVE it . So glad you could pull it off. Our children did that to ME; the one who knows everything going on and I almost fell over !!!!!! Even had lunch with a friend that day and she didn't even peep !
    Kids still laugh about it today.
