Birthday Away and Birthday with Friends!

Part of our plan for months was to take mom away for a little time by ourselves.  So our amazing one-of-a-kind Papa kept Georgia for us to spend some time at the Gaylord Texan.  What an awesome place.  Before we landed at the Gaylor we stopped in downtown Grapevine for delish Mexican you sense my south of the border pattern?  
I believe we had a stuffed fried avocado from Esparzas...go now!

On our way to spend our afternoon at the spa
 Heading to dinner in Fort Worth
 Why haven't we always spend some QT in Fort Worth...such a great city and downtown is so fun.  Definitely different than the Big D scene!
We dined at the ever so famous Reata! HOLY MOLY! Somebody's been holdin' out on us!  INcredible!  Here's Ash with the jalapeno mac and cheese! Yes please!
 These were the beef tenderloin tamales!  Not pictured are the coma inducing cheese grits! 
Here we are rolling out with our take away box! 
 So after we stuffed our faces to celebrate mom's birthday we decided to go all out and hit up OldWest Cafe.  What Ash is carrying in this picture is whats left of the banana nut pancakes with peanut butter syrup.  UH HUH!  See ya this summer!
We finally relieved Dad and Dave of baby duty and returned home after a great night sleep and a few pounds heavier!  

 Until Georgia and I made an appearance, Mom thought they were planning to spend the weekend away with a little group at their friend's farm.  
So our last little surprise was a birthday dinner with a few of mom and dad's dearest and oldest friends who they were planning to spend their weekend with
 Happiest Birthday to my Mama! What an incredible weekend with memories that will last forever!  After a lot of brainstorming I sure am glad this is how we decided to do 60!! What a fun surprise that blessed me more than it did you.  I promise!  And what a fun few days Georgia got to spend with her Papa!  There is something very special those two share and watching them gives me just a little idea of what it must have looked like to see a certain daddy with his daughters 30 plus years ago.  I love you both so much I can't describe it!
