Alvan's Birthday

I decided Alvan's not the only one who can come up with great surprises. I had been planning on seeing Phantom of the Opera at the end of March with a bunch of sisters from Relief Society. Alvan had asked if he could come too.... I told him no "it's a girl's thing". But secretly I pulled out of the sisters activity, and bought us new tickets for the show. Preferred seating even, we will be in the stalls about 12 rows from the front in the middle!! I kept it as a surprise (which is much harder than you'd think). We don't actually go until April 16th (that was the earliest I could get with the good seats). But the anticipation makes it even more fun I think. He also got 2 surfing lessons paid for by Elly & Rick & Jaime, which he was sooo excited about. He had the first lesson last Saturday, and now he can't wait to get back out there again. It was the best weather we've had all year, so he had a great day for it.

I saw the video on Ellyns blog, nice job Dad. The kids thought it was so cool and really want to go to the beach and surf now.
