On May 12th, my Mother celebrated her

70th birthday. 

My sisters and I had Mom and Carl fly up to Chicago a couple days before the big day. We held a surprise party for her on the Friday night of her birthday week at Kemper Lakes Golf Club. Prior to the party the whole family had photos taken on the beautiful grounds there.

At the party all her children's families were there, along with Ray Bristow, Aunt Joyce & Uncle Jim, and the Barb & Randy Gray family. Additionally, Carl's son Mark & Alvin and daughter Deb's family attended as well. It was a great time.
