What's in a surprise anyway?

So I being the greatest wife ever(o.k. well maybe only I think so), I love to try to create great, big, huge, surprises for my hubby!! But not matter how hard I try or how sneaky I think I am being, he ALWAYS finds out!!!!AARGH!!!!
Example 1: When were were dating I planned a fun filled day for his birthday, and some how he knew exactly what we were doing the entire day!!! Going to the zoo, then eating at hooters! Ha ha yeah I really did take him to hooters, and you should see what they do for birthdays!!! He was totally blushing, but in heaven at the same time!!
Example 2: For our 5 year anniversary I decided to fly us out to where it all started VIVA LAS VEGAS BABY!! (I being married to him for 5 years now knew that he would try to find out what present he was getting , where we were going etc.) So I was very sneaky and bought the plane tickets on our American Express Making sure that the last statement already came, and that there were no purchases on our card, that would make him check our statement! Anyways long story short, He just randomly got online and checked the bill(remind you there were NO purchases on there)and of course found the plane tickets!!!!
Example 3: For Christmas I bought him a new GPS system, and I even created a new account on the computer, when buying it!! But of course he randomly just happens to find the web site I was on and my account popped up, once again he just had to find out and spoiled yet another surprise!!!
Example 4: (This just happened yesterday hence the reason for the post)
He has had is eye on a remote control airplane, so I (best wife) decide to get him one for fathers day!! But as most of you probably don't know they are expensive little buggers!!!
So I checked EBay, Craigslist, and low and behold on KSL, I found one!!! Hooray!! The only thing, I have to pick it up. Once agian I try to be sneaky, and wait until I knew he would be gone, and arrange a pick up via text messaging just in case!! So The morning after I got it, Craig wakes me up by saying, "Who can't make it tonight" half asleep I say "What" He replies "He will not be able to meet you tonight, But I can meet you after work" AARGh !!! He read my text messages With Mr. Secret Airplane man, and once again ruined the surprise!!! So After 8 years I still have to say no matter how sneaky I think I am, Craig is so much more, and will always find out!!! AARGH!!!!

Do any of you have people in your lives you cannot surprise no matter how hard you try?
