Thanks to Nick's dad for getting this wonderful surprise party planned for Marcia(nick's mom). My mil loves to go to Shipshewana to the Blue Gate Theatre. So dad booked the hotel for a night, and got the tickets for the Home Game show and dinner. What a fun time we all had.
So us kids all drove up ahead of Gerry and Marcia. We got to the Rise n Roll Bakery about 30 minutes before they did. Sat in a back room and waited for mom to arrive. We all sang happy birthday and really surprised her. She was in tears. Then we ate an early lunch and headed on to a bit of shopping. Next we went to the Home Game show. I had never been to any of their productions, but I enjoyed it greatly and would go again easily.
Next we had a table reserved and food was brought to us. Yummy Amish home cooked food.

|Dad paid for us all and we had a horse and buggy ride. Went to see where they are kept and cared for.|
The surprise wasn't quite complete as once we got back to the hotel we had a little party for mom. Complete with cake, snacks, and drinks. I really had a blast making this cake for mom. Nothing like I had ever quite done before and used a "new" frosting to me and really enjoyed working with it. It was a White Chocolate and Raspberry 4 layered cake.
