and surprisingly enough, we pulled it off. brian was in charge of getting them there...he told them i wanted him to stop at the church to see if they had a bathtub we could borrow for Will while we were in town (his mom is the church secretary). all of the grandkids were waiting when they got there to escort them into the party (which was surprise enough for nana). they were totally shocked! it was an awesome evening of good food and fellowship.
the only thing we dropped the ball on was PICTURES! i took some before, but once the party started, we were all so busy visiting that we didn't get pictures of the lovebirds together (AH!) or a family picture (double AH!). but this is what i did get...including a video of the big surprise (although it's pretty terrible....bad idea letting the crybaby of the bunch record the big surprise!). we'll hire a photographer for the 50th anniversary party...or just plan a family trip to hawaii!!!
Happy Anniversary, Nana and Pawpaw!
