Our micro-preemie son's journey

That Big Pop!

We were out and about Friday before Cayden’s party getting supplies, food, and running errands. It had been a pretty long day and we were ready to just go home and relax some.

We pull into the driveway after and this white car whips in behind us. Nate had his hand on his gun, ready to pull it if needed, as he cautiously approached the car.

I could only see a big guy with salt and pepper hair from where I was at. I kept thinking, “Why is my dad driving a rental car when he has his own truck?”. Right about that time, I hear Nate talking to someone in a completely shocked voice. I round the back of the car and realize that it’s BIG POP!!!!

Yes, Big Pop flew in from Ohio, rented a car, and did not tell any of us!!

Nope, not a single person knew, including his wife, Gamma. She didn’t believe us until she saw him for herself…hehe.

I quickly grabbed Cayden out of the car, well as quick as you can when you have to unbuckle a car seat, and excitedly told him that Big Pop was here to see him. He wasn’t sure what I was talking about until he got to see his Big Pop.

To say we were all shocked was an understatement. I told Cayden that he didn’t know it now, but one day, he would realize just how much he is loved. His Big Pop came all the way out here to be with him for a weekend because he loves him and misses him SO much.

Nate and I couldn’t be more touched that Big Pop pulled the ultimate surprise just for our little boy. It’s certainly something we’ll always remember. We sure love you Big Pop!

Yes, he sure does love and miss Cayden. And that was “THEE SURPRISE” of the century!
