April 9th is Al's birthday and I was determined to give him the greatest surprise he has ever had. The reason I decided to do that was first, because seriously every gift I have given to him thus far he has known about, and second, I figured that if I did something really great that I would be off the hook and back to my unsprising ways in no time! Great idea. Right? Well anyways, my dad ended up getting us free ticket {three rows from the bottom} on April 6th. That week I pulled so many strings and schemed up all sorts of stuff to keep him from knowing what was going on. I had to email two of his teachers and talk them into letting him take the tests the following week, which they surprisingly agreed to. I had to request work off for him, but have them still write his name on the schedule and give him fake shifts so that he wouldn't think there was anything up! On Thursday morning I went to his house and packed up all his stuff while he went to class and work and the luckiest part was that he never went home! After work he went straight to the gym and then straight to our 8:00-10:30 humanities class! I was ecstatic about that because if he would have gone home he would have noticed his toothbrush, deodorant, and half his closet missing. Then when I arrived to class I told him my sisters needed to borrow my car for the night so I needed to put all my stuff in his car so they could come get it. This is when I secretly loaded all of our bags into his car. I never gave his keys back and I hoped he wouldn't ask for them back, and as we were walking out of class I was like I think I will drive tonight as I ran to the car. When we got in I said in my most serious voice, "Al we need to go on a little drive, we need to talk." HA. I was trying so hard to not laugh my head off while I was saying this and Alex thought I was crying. {he later told me he thought I was breaking up with him, poor guy.} Well after we were safely on the freeway and he was freaking out, I said, "What if I told you I got you out of your two tests this week and you could take them next week, I got you out of work for the weekend, all of our stuff is packed for the weekend in the truck, we are headed up to Heidi's to spend a few days, and WE HAVE THIRD ROW TICKETS TO THE JAZZ GAME TOMORROW NIGHT. well, I must say I was expecting a little bit different reaction. He just sat there. He was trying to think if I had covered everything and by the time we arrived in Hurricane he was as giddy as could be, and made me pull over so he could drive the rest of the way. It was one of my favorite trips ever, he didn't have a clue in the world, and we had such a fun time! I love this boy more than anything in the world! Happy Birthday Al, I love you so dang much:)

{sorry about the blur, but this was hilarious! While we were at Tucanos for dinner I mouthed to the waiter that it was his birthday and Alex never saw, so when they came out singing he thought it was for someone else and I think he about died when he realized it was for him I was laughing so hard and he was bright red}
