Happy Birthday Gran!!

This weekend we celebrated Gran's 60th birthday by taking a trip to one of her very favorite places, Jefferson, Texas. For over 20 years, Judy and her best friends have made the trek to this East Texas city  the week after Thanksgiving for shopping, home touring and lots of laughter. So for her big birthday, she wanted all of our family to take a trip so that she could show us where they stay and what they do. We left early Saturday morning and took 2 cars. Gran drove me and the boys in our SUV while Norman drove David & James in theirs. We stayed at the Faded Rose ,the Bed & Breakfast where they've stayed for almost every one of their trips. The owner is practically family and it was nice to finally meet the woman that we've heard so much about all these years. We hit the historic downtown area and visited shops like Beauty & the Book, Blessings, Jefferson General Store, lots and lots of antique stores. The little Reed boys had a blast and even the big ones seemed to enjoy themselves too.

We gave the birthday girl a tiara and a special birthday button that read: 60 and Sensational! She wore it with pride and got lots of birthday wishes from complete strangers. On Sunday, she even had a woman who was a professional singer sing Happy Birthday to her during lunch! And when we woke up on Sunday, her actual birthday, there was snow flying around. It was a GREAT weekend and a fun way to wrap up our Spring Break.
