Different eye color? Could be someone else's child?

My wife and I both have blue eyes but our son has brown eyes. Her mother has green eyes and father has blue eyes. My mother has brown eyes and father has blue eyes. Is is possible for our son to have blue eyes?

You said your son has brown eyes and then that he has blue so obviously he can have blue if you and your wife do, but if your mother has brown eyes then yes your son can have brown eyes as brown is a dominating gene.
