The BIG 3-0

Today we celebrated our favorite guy!  I have been waiting for this day to arrive for what feels like months.  I wanted to do something extra special for Tyson.  He does so much for our little family day in and day out.  I decided a few months back that I would get in contact with thirty of his closest friends and family and ask them to say a few words about him.  As each letter came trickling into my email, I became more and more overwhelmed with emotion.  Each letter was perfect, describing all of the wonderful memories and characteristics that have touched so many peoples lives.  I felt humbled just reading each one.  I could hardly sleep last night, knowing he would finally be able to read them for himself.

With the help of Cara and my mother-in-law, we were able to sneak in and decorate his office last night.  We had so much fun!

This morning, Tyson of all days decided to wake up super early.  I was trying to stall time all morning long, so that he wouldn't beat me to his office.  I went about my morning dressed as if I was going to teach Zumba.  He had no idea I was freaking out inside.  Luckily I was able to beat him out the door and arrive at his office just in time, to witness the surprise.

Seeing the expression on his face made all the stressing worth it!

 ^^^ P was of course, obsessed with the balloons. ^^^

^^^ Grandma Betty even made it for the surprise. ^^^

Tyson's mom was sweet enough to wake up at 5:00 AM to make Tyson and his co-workers his favorite blueberry scones.  They were delish!

 ^^^ P loved being able to go visit her daddy at work. ^^^

^^^ Added bonus is seeing grandpa each time we go visit. ^^^

It ended up being the perfect morning.  I loved seeing Tyson open each letter from past coaches, parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, friends, and teammates.  He really is so special to me and everyone he comes in contact with.
