Birthday surprise

Last Friday was, quite possibly, the happiest birthday I have ever had! Just after breakfast, hubby loaded me in the car and drove me to the airport, where this sweet girl arrived from New York! What a delightful surprise. It had been several months since we had seen Leigh Anne and having three full days to just hang out with her was an awesome treat!
The day was filled with greetings from dear friends and family and phone calls from Steve and Ally to wish Mom a happy birthday. These beautiful flowers from Ally were delivered later in the day too.

In addition to wonderful meals all weekend (breakfast tacos, gluten free french toast, omelets, I could go on and on!) hubby, Leigh Anne & I decided to check out the Perot museum of nature and science on Saturday. It was fun to wander into Dallas for the day and explore! 

 The museum was lots of fun, lots of interactive displays and interesting exhibits.
Throw in some shopping, church, and just some downtime, it was a fabulous weekend and it went way too fast! Luckily we'll be seeing Leigh Anne again next month.
