My Suprise Visit Back Home to Orange County, CA

My mom's 60th birthday party was vastly approaching and I still didn't know if I'd be able to get the time off of work to fly home to Orange County, CA and enoy the festivities with my family. Then... I got an e-mail from my boss that said that family is our companies number 1 priority... so off I flew.
From Detroit to Orange County.
I was going home to suprise my mom for her 60th birthday party.
I flew home on Friday and back to Detroit on Sunday, and with the little time that I had back home, I used up every second of it.
My mom was in pure shock when she saw me at the door -- instant tears ran down her stunned face.
It was an incredible 48 hours and only could I say it was perfect had Bryan been there with me.
My cousin, Alicia, and I at Lake Mission Viejo. The neighborhood in the bacground is the neighborhood I grew up in and where my parents still live.
