A Marvelous Birthday Surprise

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook throughout the weekend you would have already figured out that the sudden vacation I revealed to you on Saturday was to Saskatchewan! :)

My Dad, Eddie, and I have been in cahoots with each other for the past couple of weeks working on a plan to surprise my Mom for her birthday. So, on Friday morning Eddie and I left London and made our way to Yorkton, Saskatchewan, where my parents live, to surprise my Mom for the weekend before her birthday.

Our 7:00 am from London took us to Calgary and then we had a three hour layover and then finally headed to Regina and arrived there just after one, but it wasn’t until we arrived to Yorkton that we were able to surprise my Mom ;)

We had the camera set up to catch her reaction on video…

And then waited for her to walk out to the backyard once she got home…

There were tears, laughs, hugs, and lots of love when she finally walked around the corner and saw us sitting there. She claims that it was “the best birthday surprise ever”

Our weekend in Saskatchewan was absolutely Marvelous!

Which is why I chose to share it with you on Marvelous Monday! :)

MiMM

Did you have a marvelous weekend? Is there anything marvelous happening in your Monday?

Love you all!

    That is too sweet! haha. I love doing that. Surprises are so fun :) Last year I traveled back to the school I transferred out of to visit my old friends and just showed up at their dorm room. THAT was hysterical. My marvelous Monday is being spent at the beach cottage house. So it is definitely marvelous!
