Mom's 60th Birthday Celebra[tion]

Because of conflicts with schedule, we had the party a week early, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to post on her actual birthday!

The party was a complete surprise, so we started the day with manicures and pedicures... Allison, Mom, me, and even Ellie! Then Brad came to get Ellie and the rest of us headed to the mall for lunch and shopping. Allison and I tried to come up with every excuse we could think of to head home, but Mom insisted that we visit 'one more store'.

So thereby we were late for the party, but I don't think anyone cared! Besides it was only family, so they entertained themselves! Aunts, uncles, & cousins were all there, and we had bbq & other yummy food that everyone chipped in on, and the guys did a great job of decorating per the instructions that we left them! We also had cake, lots of cake! A blizzard ice cream cake for Mom & another one for Allison, since it was actually her birthday! There was also cornhole that was fun for all, and even a little fishing. All in all, it was a great afternoon!

There was even coloring!
