A Mother's Day

Here is a picture of my mom and I on Mother's Day. We could be twins! Today Adam and I spent Mother's Day with both our Mothers. First we went to the Lilac Festival with Bob and Joanne and Adam's brother Andy. We walked around, smelled some flowers, traversed the traffic and ongoing stream of people and then we left. It was fun. Then we went to a little Tex-Mex eatery where they chowed down and Adam and I had soda and/or dessert. We had already eaten before the Lilac Festival. We had gone to our favorite place called Billy's Homestead. This time, though, we did not sit alone. There was this little old lady who came in after us who was going to sit alone. I thought to myself, "It's no fun to sit alone. Especially on Mother's Day. Maybe she would like to sit with us." So we asked her and she gladly obliged. Her name was Helen and she comes to Billy's often. We had a nice chat and I think it was a good lunch/breakfast for all of us. She even invited me to stop by if I ever wanted any flowers because she has spare flowers growing in her gardens. Sweet lady she was.
Anyway, after the Lilac Festival we went to my Grandparents house where my side of the family was. My aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, cousins and parents had all gathered for a picnic earlier (to which we did not attend) and we came to also join the company. Most of the festivities were already over and a lot of us were tired. So we just relaxed, did crosswords, chatted a bit, ate Dave and Leta's fruit salad and hung out. I had bought Mom a lovely hanging basket plant... but I'm not sure what it is... I think she liked it. I did not get any Mother's Day presents because I'm not a mother yet. Leta wishes she was... Maybe someday we can be Mommies together? Anyway... Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mom out there! I love you 'specially mom!!!

I love you too. I hope you and Leta can be mommies together someday. That would be fun.

PS. The plant is beautiful and I love it. (But not as much as I love you.)

That's both sweet and cool. I have never lived in the same area as all my relatives, so the only conventions with family I have been to are in Texas, like the wedding, or a few Cristmases. Every time though it is a treat. Talk to you later.

Wow! You two really do look alike! That was very nice what you did for Helen.

Hey, where's my comment? Did you reject it?

Shelly said...

What a good daughter you are!

I don't think I rejected any comments... You'll have to comment again!

I just said that you and your mom look a lot alike, and I've been told that I also look like you guys. It's neat to resemble eachother!
