Luckily, Sea Tac had a play area, and Sam was able to sleep really well in his stroller.
Saturday afternoon we headed into Chandler for my Grandpa's surprise party. Sam and I were a little late, so we just walked up to Papa while he was eating and stood next to him until he realized who we were. He was so thrilled to see us. It was so fun.
Family flew in from Utah, Pennsylvania, California, Seattle and Florida just for Grandpa. It was so much fun to see everyone and catch up. I love my family.
Aunt Monica and Uncle Randy.
Celeste, Freddy and Sam.
Britt, Grandpa, Me and Nikki.
Sam loved meeting and playing with all his new cousins.
Maddie and Delaney. I got to sleep on Delaney's "Hannah Montana" bed while we stayed with her family.
Dustin, Britt, Monica and Glen checking out Grandpa's book.
Chad and Stephanie. They let me stay in their house, eat their food and drive their car. My family really is better than yours. :)
Maddie loved Danny's funny faces.
Grandpa reminiscing with some friends visiting from California.

The family sent in pictures from Grandpa's life to create this awesome book. He loved it.
Loni is mature.
Sam and cake.
Jaxson and cake. They didn't get along too well. When Jax dropped his first plate, the heartbreak was totally picture worthy.
Mike, Dana, Speedy and Dylan. They might be laughing at Jaxson.
Maddie and Loni
Sam and I had a great time. I realize that its not every family that gets together to dance to the "Casper Slide" and throw surprise parties that include a bonfire level of candles. But I feel really lucky that I belong to one crazy, fun and extremely spontaneous group.
After the festivities Sam and I were able to visit Grandpa at his house. He lives in a beautiful area called "The Islands" and it is a tropical paradise in the middle of the desert. He has a little boat and beautiful property and it felt like we were in the Caribbean.
Sam loves him. Its so great to see them play together.
We also got to see more of the family for a pizza lunch at a park near my Aunts house.
Sam was again attached to Lexi's hip. These two were so funny together.
That night we all got together again at Chad and Stephanie's house for Karaoke. See, I told you were are one crazy bunch!
Monica, Randy and Dena.
Danny singing "Vanilla Ice."
Stephanie. God gave her a lovely, caring, sweet and friendly personality, beauty and style but forgot to give her singing talent. She rocked out anyway! Got to love her!
Sam tried coke. And oops, he loved it. Good thing we were up partying the night away anyway.
Monica serenading Randy and Dena.
Nikki, Maddie and Brit. We have pretty genes in the Bailey family.
If I were to title this picture, it would be blank. "__________"Just a blank, silent stare.
Chad, the Karaoke Master.
I cant tell you how much fun we had with the Bailey family.
