Mom Q's 50th Birthday Camp-out

The Birthday Girl had no idea what was in store for her on her 50th Birthday. We tried to keep the element of surprise up by inviting all of her family and friends to our camp-out without her knowing. All she knew was we were camping by the lake. It was so awesome to see the surprise on her face when she returned from a tour around the lake, to see all the decorations and friends and family arriving.
