Mammaw's 80th B-Day
This week, my grandmother (Mammaw) turns 80 year old. I can hardly believe it - she's as feisty and full of spunk as ever - it's really hard to believe she's 80. To celebrate the big day and honor her, my mother and aunt (her daughters) flew her all the way from Arkansas out to the pacific NW. This was only the second time she's ever flown and it's the first time she's ever been to my home. They were here for 5 days and we all had an amazing time - in fact I think we all had one of the best times of our lives. Truly special memories were made and I will never as long as I live forget her visit.
Here is a list of some of the awesome things we got to do together: they watched me teach (which seems to be a pretty cool thing!), we made meals together, visited Multnomah Falls, spent a day at the Oregon coast/Cannon Beach, toured the Rose Garden, and had all sorts of birthday treats.
Mammaw I love you more than any words can ever say. You are an amazing woman and I thank you for all that you have taught me about life, love, and the importance of family and God. You are a treasure! I LOVE YOU - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
