It was one of those glorious sunny and mildly warm days that you wish could last all year long. After church, the guys got busy fixing our lunch.
and minding the kids...
while more family and our friends, the Meybaums, arrived...
And all I had to do was sit around and enjoy them!
Everyone is still laughing about my comment when I sat down to eat the yummy grilled burger & corn on the cob: "so this is what it's like to be a man...you sit down to eat, and food suddenly appears!"
In addition to a wonderful "day off" and a fabulous cookout, I received these gifts: A book from Andy, handprints of two of the kids embroidered by Ellie, fruit of the vine from a local winery, as well as the hand made necklace & earrings (by my niece, Sarah), compliments of Sam & Joanna.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
Tomorrow: a fun day at the zoo!
