mom’s night out

It’s good to be home but everyone needs a night out now and then!

My aunt’s 40th birthday was last Friday (the 9th).  I took my daughter Grace and we drove four hours “back home” (where I grew up) so we could meet Colleen and the others at the movies to watch “Mom’s Night Out”.


There were beautiful tulips in bloom outside the theatre so Mom and I had Grace take a picture of us.  Mom is Colleen’s big sister, they are 17 years apart.


Colleen has four daughters,  she brought Molly and Maddie to the movie, her two oldest girls.


Colleen had nieces, sisters, daughters, and friends join her for her birthday movie.


We sat in our big comfy seats, ate candy and popcorn, laughed and cried……the movie was awesome!

Take yourself and some friends out for a night you will remember.  I would like to see it again, so invite me, ‘K?  xo

PS. I love Trace Adkins.
