Caroline and John's faces were a picture of surprise    :blush :blush
on Saturday night. Jeanette was in a panic trying to get them
to the hotel on time without giving the game away.
Well done Jeanette. It was a great night.

A bit hungover on sunday but a trek up the knockmealdown mountains
to look for some old vans blew the cobwebs away.
Of course we found nothing!!!
 :duh :duh :duh

Had a great night at the surprise party! Here's a glimpse of the celebrations.

Some of the laydees await the happy couple

Shirley made this beautiful bouquet and button hole

Sam and Shirley hiding from the couple!

"What's going on?"

The happy couple arrive! Mr. and Mrs. Cowen!

Sam and Lorcan (ignore Uncle Liamy!)

The cakes!

Did anyone get a picture of that?

Who can't wait...

...until it's her turn?

The wedding cars - Gus, Sandy and Ozzy!

Always looking on the bright side of life

It was a brilliant night, and I just can't thank you all enough! 

Thank you guys for organising it, and thank you guys for coming along.

It was such a total suprise you rendered me utterly speechless...and you all know that's rare for me  :D :D :D

I really don't know how you all kept it such a secret...truly I don't, even after a few sherries at the T2i Laydees Hen Party last weekend....not even a hint slipped'd all make wonderful spies :ninja :ninja :ninja  :D :D :D

The pics are brilliant :clap

Once more, on behalf of both of us, thank you :group

Dont know how we managed to keep it a surprise.  Am glad you enjoyed yourself, and yes was great to you speechless for once in your life.  Hope your Mam enjoyed her stay over the past few weeks and made it home safely today.

I so enjoyed my stay, I can't tell you. I'm having withdrawal symptoms from Ireland and all you people.
I do need a holiday though , to get over my holiday!
It was all wonderful, from the hen/birthday onwards, and culminating with that great surprise party. Their faces were a picture weren't they? Well worth all the secrets and lies!! Really well done girls, you're all such a thoughtful bunch of people and I love your company.
The flowers, by the way, made it back safely and look great on my table.
Thanks once again for everything, see you at Camp!
