While in Texas, the whole family got together to celebrate my sweet mother's birthday and retirement. Turns out it was a semi-retirement celebration because when she retired, they asked her to work part-time from home. Because she's just that awesome. We all met at The Monument Cafe in Georgetown, TX. If you're ever in the area, do yourself a favor and go there.

The birthday/semi-retirement girl. Can you believe she's 62?!?!
We all chipped in and got her an iPad. She was so surprised and we all cried. It was sweet. And we gave her detailed instructions to not let Daddy touch it.
The Wenzel Women. (Well, the Wenzel, Barlow, Self and Monk women.)
And those precious grandkids. This was the best I got. It'll do...
It was a special night. Spending time together, celebrating the most selfless woman I know, chasing kids around the garden. One of those moments that will forever be a snapshot in my mind.
