Happy Birthday Darlene!

The family of my dear friend, Darlene, recently pulled off the best surprise party I've ever seen. Her children and grandchildren came from Illinois and California, her mother and brother also came from California, and her friends came from all over to celebrate her birthday with her - and she had NO idea any of this was going to happen. It was so much fun to see her reaction. They even planned it so she would be surprised in phases.  She first saw lots of close friends there and went around hugging everyone.

AND THEN...this is Darlene's face when her adorable grandchildren came from behind the door.  Talk about moments that take your breath away... I'm pretty sure there weren't very many dry eyes in the room at this moment.

Curt, you did a GREAT job!  What a sweet thing to do for your wife!

 Darlene's grandbabies were so cute, but they didn't really care to stop and pose for me.

The little man.  Love that face.

And this is just one of those moments that you can't get ready or set up for - you just have to snap it.  The kids did one of their impromptu dance performances for me.  I love these precious snippets of everyday life!
