Mother’s Day Revelry…5 days late

Yeah, I know Mother’s Day was 5 days ago, but I am just now getting around to editing the pictures. And guess what?!  I’m actually in one of the photos.  Only fitting, since these pictures were taken to celebrate the joys of motherhood.  (Excluding chicken pox, head lice, and potty training of course.)

Kent is a pro when it comes to finely chopping an onion, or expertly trimming a tree, but he doesn’t seem to share the same enthusiasm as I do when handed a camera.

As a matter of fact, whenever we are on vacation and someone approaches him with a camera and a request to take their picture, he simply points to me and says “You better have her her do it or you might find yourself missing a head when you get back home.”

And look!  Kinsey and I both have our heads firmly in place, so kudos to Kent.

I should add, I don’t share his enthusiasm for cooking or gardening, so maybe we better just maintain the status quo here if that’s OK with him.


Mother’s Day was wonderful.  We walked the dogs among the still blooming wildflowers near our home, and then went on a long, leisurely bike ride throughout our neighborhood.  Capping off the day we had dinner at “Olive and June” in Austin (named after the Chef’s  grandmothers.)

Mother nature was feeling benevolent, and proffered beautiful weather as we dined al fresco, underneath the canopy of a 500+ year old Live Oak tree, sans insects.
Did I forget to mention that the food was incredible?  (Locally sourced, organic, and plentiful!)

The only thing that would have made the evening better would have been if my mom and dad, brother and sister-in-law, and two grown sons had been there to join us.

I love you mom!  Thank you for always being there for me.
