With only a few more days before the special family surprise, Ardie tries everything he can think of to keep the secret. Unfortunately, even his most creative diversions seem to backfire. Finally, with some advice from his favorite teacher, he comes up with the perfect plan. Now, the toughest part is working around his two very observant and increasingly suspicious parents. Plus, to make things worse, he must prevent his big mouthed little brother from finding out and ruining everything. Piece of cake.
