Honey's Big Surprise!

 We had to keep a huge secret for WAY too long!! Our sweet Honey turned the big 6-0 this past weekend and Wendi and Georgia were coming into surprise her! Wendi and I planned her birthday weekend months ago and it seemed like April 15th would never get here! We picked up the two travelers on Wednesday afternoon while avoiding phone calls from Mom.  We could hardly contain ourselves knowing she was only 20 minutes away and knew nothing of our visitors. 

 So glad to be with their cousin, just missing the other two so much!!

 Thursday morning, the plan was for Wendi and Georgia to go to school with us and we would surprise her during her staff meeting before school. We wanted a dramatic moment and we got one!! 

 Papa met us at school too and was in on the surprise! The four Watkins went to lunch later to add to the celebration of Honey.
 I had a dr. appt and was so glad W&G accompanied me. We were hoping Baby Boone would be born while they were here, but he just needed to cook a little longer. boo!

 After school, playing at Honey's.

 Friday we spent all day at Honey's soaking up every minute with them! Saturday morning Wendi, Mom and I headed to our girls getaway! Huge thanks to Papa for keeping little Georgia and Dave for keeping our two so we could spend some time with the girlies! We went to lunch in Grapevine and then to the Gaylord. 

 A little spa treatment!

 The front desk sent Honey cake balls. Not sure if any of us tried them, though. We ate so much good food all weekend and didn't have room!
 We chuckled at several prom groups that were there to take pics.
 Saturday night we went to Fort Worth to my new favorite restaurant, Reata!!!
 Downtown FW is awesome!

 Reata has an amazing menu!! We ordered way to much food, but enjoyed every bite!!
 Jalenpeno, Bacon Mac n Cheese! Ummm, yes!!!! (We shared this:)
 Sirloin tamales!

 Sunday morning, we headed to another amazing restaurant, the Old West Cafe! Funny how the weekend was planned around some great meals! Such a special, memorable time celebrating our sweet Mama!!
