It was Mom's 60th b-day, so we had to come up with something good! Mindy, Terra, and I decided to do a 2 day event here in Utah. It started on Friday morning where the girls met at Kneader's for their famous French Toast. If you haven't had this yet, you are missing out. We then headed over to the Brickhouse Day Spa and had massage or a facial and then met in a room together to get our pedicures! It was heavenly. Then it was racing to get ready and meet all of the rest of the crew at the Salt Lake Temple. We took pictures in the Joseph Smith Building, and then went thru a session. It was so neat to have all of the family in the temple together. Next it was PF Chang's for dinner, and over to the Melting Pot for dessert. Everything was perfect and we were totally exhausted by the end of the night. We were supposed to go snomobiling the next morning, but everyone decided to sleep in. Saturday the boys went off to Ruth's Diner for creme brule and chocolate malt shakes while the girls went to work on turning Mindy's downstairs into a "tent". It turned out so beautiful, and we never would have gotten it done if Wendy had not been there to supervise! We had bought white t-shirts and printed words that were important in life and also described the person wearing it. Mindy had the girls from her ward come over to "take orders, and serve dinner" to everyone. We had Cafe Rio salads. Sooooo Gooood! Okay I have to give a huge shout out to Dippidee for the cake. It was amazing. Both to look at and to eat! We played a few games and then settled in for a slide show program that featured tons of pictures and the voice recordings of each person's special message for mom. It was such a great weekend and I don't think it could have been anymore perfect. Happy 60th Mom! Hope you loved it as much as we all did.
Gabe and I were married in August of 1996, and 12 years later we're still going strong! We have 2 great boys; Michael 15 and Jordan 9. Oh yeah, and our dog Brutus. The boys love him, and I "tolerate" him.
