It was Mother's Day - and perhaps more importantly, it was a major milestone birthday for Karen. (She doesn't look a day over 27.) She was absolutely clear about how we would celebrate: Dinner at the Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth. And we celebrated.
|Matthew and Amanda drove up from Grand Rapids to join the celebration.|
|Amanda hadn't had the Bavarian Inn's chicken dinner before, and she pronounced it delicious!|
|The Bavarian Inn provided a special Bavarian chocolate mini-birthday cake.|
|And Karen really loved the orange-and-vanilla swirl over cranberry ice cream.|
|Even the gnomes in the Royal Gift Shop wished her a happy birthday and happy Mother's Day.|
