Details about my Mother's Day

Well, better late than never, but here's the details about my Mother's Day.

First off, I think this picture of my nephew is hillarious. Doesn't he looks like Yoda here?

Maybe its just me....

Mother's Day morning we went to church. I haven't been able to go that often lately because the music is really loud, there's a lot of people, and if I have a migraine or am starting to get one its not the place for me.

So I was really glad that I was feeling good, 100%, and I got to go. That was nice.

After we got home I had a little more housework to do, not too much, and my daughter really helped a lot.

In the late afternoon, my parents and brother's family came over for a little BBQ. I had made potato salad and deviled eggs the day before, so no cooking for me!

My sister-in-law had been out of town, so she brought the chicken. My hubby BBQ'd it on our brick outdoor BBQ. He used wood from an apple tree that we had cut down a few years ago, so it had a good smokey flavor.

My Mom brought some veggies, her famous Baked Beans and a homemade cherry pie. The family's fabulous cherry pie recipe is in the archives somewhere around Feb. 23rd 2006.

I got some great presents. A new bike from my hubby that I tried out yesterday. Fabulous! Now I can ride bikes with the kids when we go camping. And, maybe start getting some exercise!

My daughter made me a bracelet at school, TSE made me a card and Max-Ay made me a keychain out of beads. Lovely!

The best way to end a fantastic Mother's Day is to have the Survivor Finale. Oh man, we were so bummed when Terry didn't win that last challenge. Of course, we weren't too terribly surprised he didn't win. He's just too successful of a guy, most people hate that!

But Aras? Yikes! I can't imagine what he's going to do with a million bucks!

It was a great day, sunny and unseasonably warm for May in SW Washington. Yesterday evening I even had to turn on the air conditioning!

Hope your Mother's Days were great as well....

Oh! Please watch the slideshow of my Mother's Day photos.

LOVE the Yoda piccy! I discovered yer stuff from WriterMom's blog. I am a HUGE fan of 'real life' pictures, and you are THE QUEEN! I never thought about scanning my old pictures (or, maybe I should say that I wasn't motivated). These pics are great, thanks for sharing.

That photo is too funny! "There is no try. Do or do not." He he.

I could use a new bike. Mine I bought in 1988 when I graduated high school. It's not really roadworthy anymore.
