One of the most exciting news to break to family is baby news. Since both my parents, and Arthur’s parents do not have any grandkids, this is a very special announcement to both parents.
We had thought over and over again as to how we would break the news. The traditional ultrasound picture, little baby bottle gifts to the parents, and even the baby bibs for the grandparents, but they just weren’t “us”.
Arthur has really grown a passion for the quad-copters, and is getting pretty good at controlling the copter in mid air. We decided we would make a movie type of announcement. We started by filming the scenery in Los Angeles, along with the trees, sky, and the park. Very slowly, the copter lowers down and in the middle of the screen, we are standing with a poster that reads, “GUESS WHAT”.
We leave the the “guess what” part of the poster showing for about 5 seconds, and then I turn it around to read “WE’RE PREGNANT”.
It took several seconds to click with our family members… but once everyone realized this was not a joke, and we were serious about our news, everyone started to applaud, cheer, and run to us and give us a squeezing hug.
After all our planning, we can both proudly say we had a great and successful announcement for both our parents.
