Father’s Day Surprise!

My Father’s Day tradition is to have my family over to my house and cook a fabulous brunch. This year was no exception. Dad was packing for a fishing trip to Colorado, Mom was packing for a girls get-away to Santa Fe, and Will was off to basketball camp. Translation; my family was way to busy with their own schedules to have any clue that this Father’s Day was going to be one to remember!  I was about to tell my parents that their wish had finally come true…that they are going to be Grandparents!

I was so anxious to share the good news, I started waking up about every 30 minutes, starting around 3:30am, to look at the clock and mentally calculate the hours left, until my parents would be arriving. I was such an emotional basket case, Chris actually sent me to pick up dry cleaning at 8:00am, just to get me out of the house! Since Chris is had cooked this recipe before, he was in charge of making the waffle batter and blueberry sauce. I made sure the table was set, the gifts were wrapped and everything was ready.

Mom & Dad arrived at 9:00am, and it nearly killed me to make small talk. Chris had just installed wood floors in our dining room, so while I was showing them off to my parents, he got a head start on the waffles.  Chris plated the food shortly thereafter, and I was finally able to tell Dad, “time to open your card!”  I nonchalantly reached for the video camera…and you can view the video below to get the rest of the story!

    • Thanks! I think it’s my favorite thing EVER! I knew Dad would be excited and cry, but I loved Mom’s reaction! 😉 She is so excited; it’s really cute!! I’m trying to hold her off on buying gender neutral baby clothes!! When do you find out the sex??? I don’t want to wait until my next sonogram….which is 10 weeks away.
