I wanted to surprise-visit my brother for his 40th birthday months and months ago. Then we found out #2 was coming, and I figured I should be responsible and save the money/time off… plus, I had no idea how I would be feeling at 24 weeks pregnant. I scrapped the idea back in the summer.
Fast forward to two weeks ago: I was feeling nostalgic for my firefighting brother as Noah got to experience his first real-live, up close fire truck encounter at our preschool. I missed our family so much, and really felt pulled to try and make this surprise visit happen. So I just decided to check ticket prices and found that I actually had a free flight racked up with Delta sky miles! So in a mad rush, I booked a quick Thursday-Saturday trip to see Mike Day turn 40.
He was so glad I made the trip, and it was such a treat to spend time with him, Jennie, and my two nephews. Plus, I got to cheer on the Royals in Royals territory on Friday night (thankfully a night they won!)! We ate good food, celebrated with friends, and snagged some lovely pictures in the midst of all the activity.
So here’s my October photo: all decked out and ready to cheer on KC in my brother’s backyard!
And a few others from the weekend:
