What it was really all about...

Hi y'all! So I guess you are all wondering what on earth Dad was talking about in his last, rather mysterious, post. Right? So here's the story:
At breakfast Friday morning, Dad informed us that we would be leaving Sunday morning as soon as we got done with chores to drive down to Florida. He told us that he had a meeting in Orlando Sunday night, and that we would drive over to Daytona Monday morning to have lunch with Grandma. "Pack something Church-like," he says. So we head out after milking and feeding-up, and get to Orlando in time for lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Sweet Tomatoes. Oh, it was so yummy! After that we went to the hotel to check in and get ready for the meeting. So after we all crashed on something comfortable, Dad says he needs to give us something for the meeting tonight. When he pulls out a yellow envelope marked "very important information", it suddenly dawned on me, this is a joke! So Dad pulls out tickets to...
A Tim Hawkins concert!
Needless to say we were really surprised... and I didn't wear what I had packed to wear to the meeting! We all enjoyed the show, I think he's funnier in person than on the DVD's. Anyway, he had us rolling. We ended the evening at Chipotles, my first time ever!
Monday morning found us heading out to Daytona early, trying to beat the traffic (the Daytona 500 had been postponed to Monday). We had a wonderful visit with Grandma, and a delicious lunch at Red Robin. We all agreed that the group of guys sitting behind us must have been the pit-crew for the M&M car- they all were wearing matching M&M "uniforms".
Any-hoo we had a wonderful "surprise" trip with Dad, it is such a blessing to have such a wonderful father.
On with the pictures!

How exciting! We know a few families that went to see that show!
Oh, and Chipotle has to be my favorite restaurant. Their food is so good.
Looks like y'all had a great trip! :)
