Two days after Mother's Day was my 34th Birthday, Tuesday, May 10! My parents came from Oregon to be here for my birthday this year, which made it extremely special to me, they even took me to my favorite place to eat, Trio's! They also wanted to celebrate Beatrice's birthday, May 20, and Nathan's birthday, May 22, so we just had a huge celebration! We had church on the evening of the 10th so after church we went to my in-laws to eat and they surprised me with this beautiful cake!
For my birthday I received $$$ and my dear husband is taking me to NYC!!!!!!!! (So I will be posting pics of our trip)

Mother's Day-the day we set aside to honor our Mothers! When I was growing up I didn't have a clue how important this day was, I didn't have a clue just what responsibility and duty fell on the shoulders of a Mother, but first and foremost I want to say how much my Mother means to me and how I love her! She has truly been an amazing example in my life! She is precious to me!
