Surprise Surprise Surprise


I had a Big birthday coming up, and thought I would just go out to lunch with a few girl friends.  So I organised this for the day of my birthday.  BUT my family was organising something much bigger behind my back. This is very unusual for Matt, as he is not into anything like this. So as I organised, my daughter was un-organising my plans.  Matt told me he was taking me out for a romantic dinner for 2.  I laughed and said, " you never do that", he said, " I thought we would give it a try".
We arrived at the Tooleybuc Sporting Club to a room, few of family and friends. It was amazing that they could pull this off, because I am usually the organiser. I had a wonderful night, with everyone and would like to thank my wonderful family very very much.

This is the group that I walked into, what a Surprise.

The night came to an end, and we all went home.  The next day was actually my birthday.  So there was more Surprises. They had continued to organise something more.  Matt told me to pakc a bag for a few days.  We left for our road trip.  We travelled to Echuca, had lunch, then onto Moama and beyond.  We arrived at a lovely place called Deep Creek Mariner Resort.  This was amazing.  On the banks of the Murry River, with wonderful accommodation.  Then as the day went on , the whole family started to arrive.  This was fantastic.  We all stayed here for the long weekend.
