May I know which one is correct, "Our family got a surprised time" or "Our family got a surprising time" or Our family got a surprise time"? Thank you so much.
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

None of the three are correct.
"Our family got a surprised time" incorrectly suggests that the time itself was surprised.
"Our family got a surprise time" is grammatically incorrect as "surprise" is a noun and therefore cannot describe "time" (although nouns are often used in conversational speech to describe another noun, it is technically incorrect and does not work well in this situation).
"Our family got a surprising time" is grammatically correct, but the use of "got" is awkward in typical situations unless you meant to say that your family actually received a surprising time. However, even if that was the case, I would advise against using "got."
"Our family had a surprising time" would be the correct way of saying what I assume you wish to say.
