A surprise for Vonnie

Saturday evening we were invited to a surprise birthday party for Vonnie Smith. Vonnie is the mother of our son-in-law, Scott. Her birthday isn't until later in April. Having it early helped the surprise factor plus their daughter-in -law, Jess, is expecting a baby in 10 days. Planning the party before her day seemed smart!

Was Vonnie surprised? YOU BET!! Her guests arrived at John J. Jeffries, a favorite restaurant of Vonnies, at 6. We visited as we waited for the guest of honor to arrive. She thought they were eating with just Marcy and Scott to celebrate their birthday's. She was soooo wrong!

The meal was fantastic. The salmon was the best I ever ate. And the potatoes were out of this world good!

Not sure who is helping him.

It was a fabulous party! We had a wonderful time. Happy Birthday, Vonnie!
