My Mom's 50th Birthday Party

A couple of weekends ago Hadley and I made a surprise trip over to Vancouver, Washington for my mom's 50th birthday. My mom's sisters and my dad planned a huge surprise party for her, and part of the surprise was that all of her kids would be there, too! It was so much fun and she was very surprised--not only with the many people who showed up to the party, but that we got to stay a few extra days as well.

*Warning: there are a lot of photos in this post! :)

My mom and Hadley could be twins :)

It was supposed to be a 60's theme party... just in case you were wondering what these retro clothes were for!

Opening presents

Birthday cake!

My parents

Everyone had to go bowling after the party, of course!

And after that the whole group made their way to my mom's favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner

Feliz Cumpleanos!

It was an exhausting day :)

My mom and her sisters, brother, and mom

Happy Birthday, Mom!! I hope you had an amazing day. We all love you!
