we hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. we must say we had a GREAT weekend. it all started with creating a big surprise a few months ago with the older sisters and mom. we wanted to surprise our dad and this past weekend it happened. and it went perfectly!!!!
have you ever surprised a family member?
we are all amazed that we were able to pull if off. our dad still does not know how we did it
mission accomplished we would say!
even little joy was able to make the trip! she loves her grandpa!
after the big surprise to our father he showed us around Purdue some before heading off to dinner
First – Purdue is huge.
Second it was also Purdue’s Homecoming weekend, which was one reason why our parents were there
after a quick tour, we were off to dinner
nothing like celebrating with margaritas!!
Don Pablos does have a gluten-free menu…we got a simple shrimp salad with some roasted veggies and avocado.
and of course we enjoyed some dessert…thanks to Twin Cakes
the next morning we met the parents on Purdue’s campus for breakfast and coffee
we always travel with food, so never a shortage of goodies
we walked around Purdue some more, and boy did we have beautiful weather! the sun was out, a little chilly, but just perfect
yep our dad was an aeronautical engineer…too bad none of us girls got those genes, haha
the reason we made the trip and surprise was to honor our dad as he was receiving -
Outstanding Aerospace Engineer Award
in a room filled with amazing, inspiring individuals
we have more pics to come of our weekend at Purdue University
Twins Question: Have you been to your parents alma mater? Are you from a Big 10 school family? Do you go back for your school’s homecoming weekend?
till next time,
