What a weekend full of surprises for my Mom. It was a good thing her 60th birthday finally rolled around because I was about to burst with all the secrets I have been keeping this year. Especially my Dad's gift, but more on that later...
My family met at the lake for some fun and relaxation. I met Garrett my new and only nephew for the first time! What a cutie.
Allie skiing for the first time ever. She did great!
Bo & Abby
We also went to my parent's house to continue the birthday fun, which of course includes taking family pictures!
My "little" family
Mom & Dad with their FIVE grandchildren. Hard to believe!
Mary Afton, Zach, Garrett, Allie, and Abby
Next came the birthday gifts.
Surprise #1 The Jag
My Mom's dream car has always been a silver blue jaguar. My Dad has been scheming for about a year to pull this surprise off for her birthday. She was absolutely SHOCKED! I was so nervous and excited for her and loved seeing how happy my Dad was when he gave it to her.
My Mom's grandma name is Bunny, so my Dad ordered this license tag for her. Icing on the cake!
Monday on my Mom's birthday, Meredith, Mandy and I took my Mom to lunch at Ashley's downtown. Surprise #2 was that we also invited 11 of her closest friends to be there to surprise her. Again, she was shocked!
I am worn out. ; ) This weekend could not have been more perfect for my Mom, and she deserved every bit of it!
