Mother's Day Weekend

Pond
Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had company Friday evening and then had a very relaxing Mother's Day celebration on Sunday. We went to Nana and Papa's house where my Father-in-law grilled a delicious lunch, along with baked sweet potatoes, green beans and an ice cream cake.

They have a beautiful backyard with a koi pond...

And Hydrangeas. My favorite thing about Mother's Day are the three special someones who make this celebration possible...

Amen about the three special someones are your favorite part of Mother's Day! I kept hugging my little fellows yesterday, and thinking "this is my favorite part of being a Mother."
