Mom's Birthday Weekend

My Mom had one surprise after another this year for her birthday, and she definitely deserved it.  First, some of the ladies in the church put together a Birthday brunch at The Egg Cafe.  Mary An did such a good job with the decorations and games.  It was super cute with a tea room theme, the food was great,  and the company was better-- it's always nice to have a girl's day.  

 Mary An made the cake herself.  I was pretty impressed.
 Some of the girls...

 We played a game where you had to put the pictures in chronological order.   My Dad donated all the photos. The one on the right cracked us all up because it's of my Mom on a date with one of her old boyfriends.  We all wondered if my Dad really thought it was him.  :)

My Mom's actual Birthday was on Easter weekend which gave us the perfect opportunity to surprise her again!  My sister flew in and my Grandparents drove up to surprise her at Food Glorious Food (oh, this place is so good) for her birthday dinner.  I don't think she suspected a thing.  It was so fun to see her expression as she walked in with my Dad, and we were already seated at their table.  :) 

After dinner we headed back to my parent's house for dessert and gifts.

It was a busy weekend that went by way too fast.  I was scheduled to work most of the weekend, so for Easter dinner we all got together one more time at my favorite restaurant, MoMo's.  It was wonderful having the entire family together to celebrate with Mom.

And I just had to add these photos of my sister gracefully climbing into the jeep.  :D
