big important event

I was a bit AWOL yesterday from the blogging world, because it was a big day for my mom.

A day for three daughters to take their mom to a fancy downtown restaurant.



A day to pick out a perfect meal (mom had quinoa for the first time)



A day to laugh and reminisce with sisters.



A day for mom to truck around the florist where she grew up. The same paths where she rode her tricycle as a little girl. Pretending to go to far away places. Many of those places she did visit while travelling around the world with my dad 



a day for a special birthday treat. 



After all turning ninety is a pretty big occasion. So mom says she is milking it for all it is worth. We are taking her to Berea for lunch today. It will be her third birthday lunch and tomorrow we are having her party. My daughters and grandchildren are coming up and will be here for a week. (I may be a little scarce for the next week)

Happy ninetieth birthday mom. I hope you have many more. We love you.
