It's a dicey prospect to go behind mom's back to plan something. However, in this case, we think mom Barbara will make an exception. Mike and Barbara moved to Minneapolis a year and a half ago, and while they've gone back to California to see relatives, it's been four months since they visited with their daughter Anna. So Mike and Anna secretly made plans to surprise Barbara. Anna was waiting outside on the porch for mom to find her.
But four months is nothing compared to four years! Texas is a pretty large place, and when Tonya moved to Purdon, it was a little too far for her son Brian to visit. Many things have gotten in the way of Brian going to visit his mom over the last four years, but since her birthday was on January 1 of this year, he knew it was time to make the trip. Based on her reaction, Tonya loved her surprise birthday visit.
