Mother’s Day 2016

1 (1)My Mother’s Day celebration began on Friday, May 6, when Cerwin told me to pick out a bouquet of flowers when we were grocery shopping.

He knows I like fresh flowers in the kitchen.

3On Saturday morning, Jeff stopped in with this pretty plant. I will enjoy that all summer.

Thanks Jeff and Chris.

1eAt the end of the meal we were surprised with a 53rd Wedding Anniversary gift – which is in September.

1fOh, wow! As I looked at the date, I thought, “How can we go there? We are keeping Jere and Kristen’s three youngest boys that weekend.”

Then the lights went on!

“We aren’t keeping the boys.” They “tricked” us so we would keep that weekend open. 🙂

We love you and look forward to this weekend in mid-September – just days before our anniversary.

2 (5)Shortly after the surprise, we heard that their wild “tame” bunny was in the yard. It must have gotten away from someone, because it began showing up in their yard a few weeks ago – or someone dropped it off in the area.

2 (6)Then Jesse was able to pick it up. I’m not sure if he was able to do that before.

DSC_2042I admired the pretty flowers on the table at suppertime, then just before we went home, Allie handed me one of the bouquets. Thanks Josh and Allie.

Mother’s Day gets sweeter every year. 🙂

  1. What a wonderful Mother’s Day. I bet you will really enjoy that concert. So thoughtful of your kids to do that for you. The bunny is sweet. I’m feeling a little bit better. Hopefully I won’t need surgery. It might be diverticulitis.
