.celebrating my Mom.

Warning: Lots of pictures ahead!!

Yesterday was my Mom’s 59th birthday! To celebrate, Melissa organized a fun day doing something Mom has wanted to do for a LONG time! Melissa rented a limo bus, invited a bunch of girls, and we went wine tasting in the Ki-Be area. It was a fun day and I think Mom really enjoyed it!

Melissa did a great job planning everything  - great friends, good snacks, and lots of laughing!

These are at the last winery  we went to – Fidelitas

They were having a member Harvest Party – so there were tons of people there…a very fun atmosphere. There was a garage door that opened onto a patio with a beautiful view.

After dinner, Mom, Amy, and I (Dad waited in the car) went to Craft Warehouse to take advantage of their Moonlight Madness sale (of course!).
I think Mom had a great day. I am so thankful that we could celebrate another birthday with her! Hoping to celebrate BIG time next year – this was just a practice round!!
