For Mother's Day, we went to visit J's mom in Soda. J's brother and his sister and their families also came. We pretty much just hung out, visited, and ate lots of yummy food.
Here is Laura, Patrick, Me, and Steven hanging out watching a movie. Laura looks SO thrilled to be getting her picture taken. ;-)
Here is Grandma Sugar, P, and his cousin. We were trying to get him to say cheese but he was totally looking the wrong way!
Now he is looking the right way!
So, my mother-in-law is a huge fan of old horror films from the 50's, 60's, and even 70's. She found out that I hadn't seen hardly any of these films and so she made me watch one this weekend. As you can see, we watched THEM. Pretty nerdy if you ask me! It is about these ants that are huge (due to radiation exposure after a nuclear bomb had been tested) and these ants start attacking people in the city. It is really cheesy but I managed to sit through it. Just so you know, I love you to bits Mom! I wouldn't sit through that "torture" for just anybody! ;-)
After the movie, we ate lunch and just hung out outside in the beautiful weather. We all got a little sunburn from it but that is okay! I'm so happy to not have to wear my jacket!
Here is P with his cousin. P followed him around everywhere and they had a blast together. At one time, they were wrestling and it was pretty cute. I wish I had had my camera handy!
Here is Steven posing with his Mother's Day present. WHAT?!?!?! How rude! Uncle Bruce gave him this table saw and all I got was a hug? Oh well, life goes on! ;-)
Afterward, we came home and made a quick visit to my parents to give my my mom her Mother's Day cards. All in all, it was a great day. I love being close to family and getting to spend time with them. I hope all of you mothers, mothers-to-be, and surrogate moms had a great day. I know I did!
