The Best Friend Surprise

He didn’t know I’d secretly contacted his best friend’s mom to invite his best friend to the water park with us. He didn’t know that, while I was finishing up the AdventureCon conference, his best friend was being driven to the park.  He didn’t know that I was done at my conference, and that I […]
