Dylan Dreyer knows the importance of family, and this weekend she and her sister-in-law went out of their way to arrange a family get-together with her brother, James, that was “three months in the making.”
The NBC News meteorologist pulled off an epic surprise by showing up with her family on her brother’s family vacation in Oregon without him having a clue!
On Saturday Dreyer posted a happy, smiling group selfie to Instagram, showing her family reunited in the winter resort town of Sunriver.
“A surprise 3 months in the making!!!” she captioned the photo. “I haven’t seen my brother and his family in nearly 2 years but my sister-in-law and I planned the ultimate surprise…showing up unexpected on their Oregon vacation!!” Dreyer added the hashtags #maketimeforfamily #gocalgo #happybirthdayjame to her post.
Dreyer later posted a video of the surprise!
In 2017, the family reunited for Calvin’s baptism, and Dylan shared photos from that special occasion with TODAY viewers.
Dreyer’s other brother, Mike, an Air Force veteran, plays baseball with the Wounded Warriors amputee team and Dylan proudly covered his journey of playing in the tournament with his heroes and realizing his dream to play ball again after losing his right leg.
It looks like Dylan and her family will be getting up to some fun in the snow and lots of quality family time this weekend. We’re sure she’ll also be inspiring viewers to “pop up” on their own family members in the coming months, reminding us that no matter the distance, family really does come first!
