In order to continue the family’s tradition of “breakfast in bed” for Mom, her family celebrated on Saturday morning. They had the usual pancakes, eggs, bacon, and lots of flowers and cards. It was an enjoyable morning, but little did Judy know, it was just the beginning of a Mother’s Day celebration!

After Judy left early Sunday morning for work, her family went to work on a her Mother’s Day Surprise Dinner.
