Happy birthday mama Abo!

Last weekend Geoff, Michelle (sis), Shawn (her BF) and I flew to Seattle to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday! We had a fantastic weekend! Mom had no idea that dad had organized a party for her on Friday night at the Crow restaurant in Queen Anne. I actually was a little worried she was going to pass out when she saw us all there... but she managed, after many tears, to keep herself composed! We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with family and seeing my friends. The weather was decent (not too rainy) and the family time was just perfect. Sunday morning Piper and JJ prepared a lovely (5 course!) brunch and we spent the morning celebrating mom!

We wrote a song to sing to mom to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine." She cried the whole time!

With the "boys" from high school! It's always so great to see them.

Okay, your family is so cute! I love that you would all sing to your mom! Did you get my message that I called you parents again last week. It was precious talking to your dad. Love you guys.

I can't believe you ended up pulling this off!!!! And the tears were an honest sign she was truly suprised. You guys are so fabulous.
