A 60th Birthday Surprise

On Saturday, Romeo decided to take a flight to NYC, drive over the bridge and surprise his grammy with some chocolates for her 60th birthday! Since no one knew we were coming, we placed Romeo on the front door step with a box of See’s, rang the doorbell and then hid in the bushes next to the house. When she opened the door she saw a little Romeo and got the best 60th birthday present we could give her. She burst into tears and was beyond shocked to see him… It was a huge success! We’re so excited to be here spending time with family, exploring NYC and hitting the road for a brief getaway to Cape Cod. It should be fun! xoxo


PS, Romeo was a perfect and quiet baby on his first flight! We got lucky : )
