A Trio Of Mother's Day Pleasures

This has been the best Mother's Day in a long time.

On Wednesday afternoon Son Tony flew into town for business, and Hubby Tony and I were able to meet him for lunch. It was great to see him and catch up. As we were leaving the restaurant he got an envelope out of his car and handed it to me. When I got home I opened the envelope and found a pop-up card with a heartfelt inscription from DIL Ie and some type of drawings from each of the three grands.

Friday afternoon Tony and I were getting ready to leave the condo and discovered a box outside of our door. The box held a package of chocolate truffles from Son Brian and DIL Nicole. On Saturday Brian called. It had been several weeks since we had talked and we had a nice long catch-up conversation.
Tony always cooks dinner on Sunday, but in honor of Mother's Day he made portable picnic food. We packed it up and drove to Son Donald's house, where he and his two Chihuahua-mix dogs joined us for a short ride to Forest Park. We found a table to eat, then the three of us took the dogs for a walk.

  7. Sounds like a lovely holiday. We were at church in the morning and then our son-in-law's mother, who had spent the weekend with our kids, came by on her way home to drop off tulips the kids had sent. I have not been buying flowers because the cats create such havoc around here and I was afraid of the mess they could make. I kept them on the kitchen counter during the day and then behind the closed computer room during the night. So far, they are holding up well, as is the rose they handed out to moms at church. Glad you got to see your kids for awhile over the weekend.

    1. I understand the challenge of keeping cats away from flowers :-)

  8. Nice Mother's Day celebrations from your kids! Beautiful picture of you and your Hubby!
