This week I have been enjoying a last-minute trip to Michigan.
My niece was graduating high school, and I couldn't stand the idea of missing it. So last Monday, I left Spokane for a week in Saugatuck.
I didn't tell any of my family I was coming, and I enjoyed surprising them one by one.
Monday night, my friend Tanya picked me up in Chicago. At 2:30 a.m. I knocked on my mother's door. And, after about fifteen minutes of her looking through the blinds and yelling "who is it," she finally opened it.
After we chatted for a while, she said she was afraid to go to sleep because it might be a dream.
The next day, Breanna, the graduate, had the best reaction: instant tears.
My sister was mostly confused:
|"What is happening"|
Grandma stayed calm and collected as always:
I didn't get any other shots of the surprises, but it was great to pop in on everyone and watch it take a few seconds for them to realize who exactly they were looking at.
I've been loving my time here--and how green everything is! I've got lots of pictures to share, but now I've got to go to bed so I can enjoy my last day in Michigan tomorrow.
