Happy Birthday Mom!
Today is a special day. Today, some -- years ago, my mother was born. So, today Blake, Avery and I decided we should take our mother (and moe) out for lunch at the place of her choosing.

We ended up at the Old Fashioned Soda Fountain. It's a little place, where burgers take time, the crinkle fries are crispy, and the hot fudge melts the ice cream just a little. Our waitress even sang "Happy Birthday" as the rest of the patrons looked on, sang along and applauded.
Mom even got to blow out a candle!
So, Happy Birthday to my beautiful, wonderful mother. I am forever grateful that I was chosen to be your daughter. You've taught me through example what it is to be a mother, and I'm thankful I'm able to pass along this love to my daughter.
