It seems we’ve had way more surprises in Baby Gray’s life than I’ve had in quite some while. Last week was Annie’s retirement party; T-Paw, Baby Gray, Aunt Cookie, and I pulled a little covert operation to make it special.
T-Paw and I loaded up about 6:00 last Wednesday morning and took a little road trip!
Aunt Cookie headed in first, with T-Paw, Baby Gray, and I still out in the hall. Our plan was to send Baby Gray toddling in on his own as the initial surprise. He started off being pretty clingy, and I didn’t think he was going to go for it. Finally, I planted him in the doorway, and off he went to Annie!
It was priceless!
I managed to position my lens right in the door frame so I could get some photos without totally blowing our cover at first. Some of the shots were a little shaky, but I think these captured the moment.
It was a long trip, but Baby Gray was a star traveler, and it was absolutely worth it! On the way home, he made a little “caw” noise about four times, and that was the extent of anything like fussing or being unhappy. He’s a superstar!
