The Grand Reveal

October 11, 2011

How to tell family?  Up until this point, we had evaded interrogation about how our cruise was.  The cruise had been a big deal, because it was to be Pete’s first one, ever.  So, when Pete’s family asked about the cruise, I instead described our catamaran trip from Key West out to Dry Tortugas National Park and talked about snorkeling there, and we didn’t offer details beyond that.

For the reveal, I put together pictures, complete with captions, on Shutterfly.com and shared it with Pete’s parents and brothers’ families.  Except there were no cruise pictures…and for the last picture, I used a picture of the sonogram.  Surprise!  To my surprise, everyone looked at the photos that very day.  Maybe I’m the only one who saves up friends’ photos to look at on a rainy day.
