Love is… Surprises!

Recently our daughter went away on a vacation and while she was gone, she invited her Dad and me to spend a few days at her place.

She lives quite close to the city and she figured her parental units (as she calls us) would enjoy the chance to have some “city fun” with a crash pad nearby!

It was very thoughtful of her; we had a terrific time.


We left her house before she got back from her trip – but wanted to leave a couple of “surprises” for her to find on her return . . .

~ Her Dad mowed and trimmed her yard to perfection!

~ And because she loves her flower garden, I found some garden-y window clings to add to her kitchen door.

She was delighted to discover her surprises.

But, you know what?

I think Sir Beads and I were just as excited getting those surprises ready! 🙂

‘Til next time,


I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. You guys are just too cute! What great “parental units” you are! …My sister referred to our parents that same way. How funny is that! xoxo

  2. Mutually cool for ALL of you! What did you do while in the CITY?? or is there another fun filled post in the works. And, forgive me, WHICH big city? New York? Spill more beans!~! please.
    xx, Carol

  3. Isn’t it fun to suprise people. How nice that Sir Beads mowed and trimmed the yard. That can be a chore. I liked the window clings too.
    I too want to know where you went and what you did.
    We rode to Terra Haute, Indiana last weekend for the Harley Rally. It is only 3 hrs from the house so it is an easy ride. We saw the world’s largest wind chime and golf tee during one of the rides. The covered bridge was cute too. I took a photo of the toll sign.

  4. Sounds like lots of fun, Kelly!
    Was the wind chime actually chiming when you saw it? I’ll bet it would make a pretty powerful sound! xo

  5. Hi Paulette!
    As you probably remember – on Saturday Night Live, the Coneheads daughter used to refer to her mom and dad as “parental units”. 🙂 xo
