I called the family together and booked a weekend away.
Harrison Hot Springs Resort is one of the beautiful places to visit in British Columbia.
Big Pools, and little pools. . . wonderful for the very old. . .and very young.
My beloved is not much for attention or huge gala events directed in his honour.
So . . .we surprised him with a non party.
He thought I was acting a wee bit odd.
We arrived at the resort alone, and nearing dinner time I received a phone call letting me know that the rest had arrived.
"Stuart's calling". . .I said.
How nice of him to call and wish us a wonderful mini vacation.
"let's go for a bit of a walk before dinner". . .I said
"should we go to the room and drop off our towels and get my wallet?" he said
"um, no let's just throw them on our patio". . (ground level by the pool). . I said.
He's thinking this rather strange, since we had talked of going for a nice long walk, picking up some dinner and having it in the gardens at the hotel. It is a bit hard to buy dinner without a wallet. . but he's a good egg and doesn't argue.
So. . we leave the resort. . .I see the kids all walking across the road along side the lake where we will be walking. . .so I look the opposite direction perplexed so that he will look the opposite direction as well. It worked.
We walk along the sidewalk towards the kids. . .he looks right at them. . no recognition.
He's thinking. . .they couldn't be here since Stuart just called on his way home from work. . .
But then. . . .he spots the babies. . .
(he recognizes the ones who are most recent to join the family). . .
And . . .he smiles..
"surprise" . . .I said. . . ."I invited the kids to come join us on our romantic getaway"
"Awesome". . .he says
"I told them it would be your treat" . . .I said
"Awesome" . .he says .. .
And that is where we all were this last weekend .. .
Tomorrow on his birthday, he'll get a proper birthday post.
Have a wonderful day my friends.
