I wanted to do something special for my Mom for her birthday, so I invited a bunch of her friends and our family to surprise her for lunch at Tagaris Winery in Richland. I’ve been there a few times now and it always seems like a chic, classy place – like you’re not even in the Tri-Cities anymore!

I think she was pretty surprised! We had a fantastic lunch with some really special friends. Karen was gracious enough to take some pictures of everyone in front of this really awesome extra-large frame that was on the wall!



Mom with two of her dearest friends from high school – Brenda & Jerelyn.


Bonnie – a wonderful friend to our whole family and Mom’s co-worker.


The beautiful Baumann/Johnson gals – Kate, Kamryn, & Karen.


Kate & I – love her!


Kamryn kept us giggling the whole time, as usual! She loved to twirl around, climb on the chairs, and tease us! She wasn’t totally sure about everyone, but warmed up to us before too long. I think whenever she sees Mom & I, she thinks we’re going to take her or Kate is going to leave her with us!


Mom & Grandma – Grandma was so thrilled to help surprise Mom. So cute!


I love this picture of Mom & I!


Kate, me, Amber, & Kim


Kamryn LOVED Amber…adored her! It was so cute!


Happy 60th Birthday Mom – so glad to get to celebrate with you for two weeks! I’m glad some of your dearest friends could come help us celebrate today too! Love you!
