My sister in law is planning a 90th birthday party for her mother, my MIL. All the grandchildren are invited, some from quite far away. It will be a family dinner, on a Friday night, and then on the Saturday we will have an open invite at a local hotel for friend and neighbours to drop in and have refreshments and cake.
My daughter and family are coming on the Wednesday morning flight and will stay a week. My daughter and husband are born and raised in this town, with plenty of friends and in-laws to visit.
My daughter does not want to surprise her grand-mother. She points out that she will have to stay under the radar for 2 and a half days without her GM finding out she is in town, and will miss spending those days with her GM.
My SIL is a very organized type A person. Every detail will be taken care of.
I tend to agree with my daughter; I would rather not surprise a 90 year old quite fragile woman. She will be thrilled that her grandchildren and great-gc are coming.
I do not want to upset all the planning of my SIL though! She is already very ticked off that one grandchild is not able to come.
