My Mom's 50th Birthday Party

My dad threw a big surprise party for my mom on her 50th birthday, Valentine's Day. It was so fun to pull one over on her. She was shocked. It was at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake and about 90 family members and friends came. People came because they love my mom and wanted her to have a good time. She is constantly doing for others and forgetting herself, so it was so great to work so hard planning something for her. My sister Maggie did most of the work, and my dad. They really did a great job. Mags should be a party planner!

Rach- It's Heid. I found your blog through Sarah's. You need to get Abby to update her blog every once in a while. Anyway, my parents went to this party and said it was super classy (of course).

It is fun to see your little fam!
