Now that is one surprised 9 year old boy!
Yesterday we got him good. Judson celebrated his 9th birthday on July 1st in Minnesota with family and also shared his birthday with his new sister. Needless to say, he was missing the celebration with friends. Finally, I was able to pull off a surprise party for him on short notice, via email and phone calls (getting a bit lazy with paper invites these days) and it turned out great! The day before we had been to "cookie daze" in Ripon, and he and Drew spent the night (Omie's idea!). Andy and I came home had all kinds of time to get things ready....the pool, all the balloons, etc! Even the skies opened up so we could have the pool as the center of the party!
Jud was so surprised that I think his initial response to the big "Surprise" was one of both shock and terror!
He said, " You could have killed me!" Good thing he has a young heart!
I heart faces is also having this week's challenge which happens to be "Surprise!" How perfect. This isn't a wonderful photograph technically, but I am just glad that balloon didn't land in front of his face as I took it! I captured that moment of SURPRISE!
