Mother's Day

 I had the most delightful Mother's Day.   The children wanted to provide the Sunday meal and I suggested we eat on the side porch.   The weather was perfect for that!

 Greenwood Barbeque Chicken
Yogurt Apple Salad
Pasta Salad
Baked Beans
Mint Tea

For dessert Holly made the most delicious Angel Food cake from scratch topped with berries, lemon curds and REAL whipped cream.

After lunch there was a game of bocci ball.  Diana and I enjoyed watching from the side lines.

 Tree Climbing Dorie

 Later in the evening I took Dorie and James around the pond watching the bull frogs jump in and getting a close up look at the geese and their goslings.

The evening sun made for some great family pictures.

 What a perfect way to end this special day around the camp fire!

 Missed you Israel's and Jeremy's but was blessed by your phone calls.

Thank you to each one of you my children.  You sure made this momma of yours a Happy Mother!

Oh, Polly! I love it. I'm so glad for your happy day. the pictures are wonderful, and I do hope that you can find the time and the energy and the "want to" to blog again. There isn't a single one of us who blames you for your silence, and you've certainly been through some deep waters and heart wrenching grief. But JOY comes in the morning and your family has shown us that JOY even comes in the MOURNING. How I have been encouraged as I've watched and prayed and blessed you all. May there be many, many more golden days like this one. I surely do love you.
