Surprise Party

This past week, my super thoughtful sister-in-law, Amber, arranged for Ryan, Liam and I to surprise Daniel (my brother) on his birthday since he was at a conference in Salt Lake. We got to his hotel about 10 minutes before he arrived and picked up the cake Amber ordered and had delivered. On a whim, I asked the front desk if we could surprise him in his room. They said YES! We went to his room and waited. Watch the video to see what happened...

Daniel opened the door to his room.  The room was dark except for a dim glow coming from under the drawn curtains.  There in the darkness was the silhouette of a small child. Was he imagining things? His immediate reaction was that the room had somehow been double booked and someone had left their child there.  He quickly shut the door and told some other conference attendees in the hallway that there was a small boy in his room.  One jokingly responded, "Oh, you can't do that..."  For liability reasons, Daniel determined that he couldn't reenter the room and proceeded to the front desk.  He slid his key to the man at the desk and explained the situation.  The man (knowing our surprise) told him everything was fine.  He confirmed that the room wasn't double booked and tried to reassure Daniel, pushing his key back to him.   Daniel, however, was NOT going back in that room. He began questioning his sanity and if he was seeing things.  Eventually, the manager had to come out and explain the situation. Daniel finally came back and we all laughed and ate cake.  We had no idea just how shocking our little surprise party would be!
