So we went home to visit fam and friends. It was wonderful to see everyone. We had the large Collins party and after wards we had a smaller intimate gift giving with Brian's family. Poor Randy (our brother in law) was in the other room handling a water leak unfortunately the whole time. We waited for Brian to open his gift until the end. From his mother he got round trip fare to London to Fright Fest and from his sister Kristine he got the money for his passport! He reverted to a five year old, jumping up and down. It was so great to see him so excited and be taken by surprise. I actually had tears in my eyes. So glad that we could help to make his dream come true.
Check out the picture with Brian's sister, mother, and him. He's so excited!
