Mother's Day . . .

The view from the deck of the Canterbury Brook Inn.

A fantastic old street light in front of the restaurant.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day.  In fact, it was the first sunny day we've had since last Sunday.  We met my sister and niece and nephew for Mother's Day lunch at our favorite local spot, The Canterbury Brook Inn.  On Saturday night we still weren't sure if we were all going to be able to go due to Megan still not feeling well but her fever finally broke for good after five full days of having one.  On top of the virus, she started to complain that her ear was hurting her.  When we took her to the doctor, she had a full blown ear infection in one ear and the start of one in the other ear.  She's much better now, thankfully.  I gave her one more day at home today and we're shooting for tomorrow for her to return to school. Fingers crossed!!

Walking back to the car after lunch.

This red headed son of mine cracks me up.  Seriously.  : )

Two of my loves headed home for dessert.  We took separate cars in case Megan started feeling sick again.
We came home for dessert which consisted of fresh strawberries, pound cake and homemade whipped cream.  Once you've had homemade whipped cream it's tough to go back to the store bought stuff and it's so easy to make!! Jim worked Saturday night and woke up so he could have lunch with us and then came home and went back to bed for a couple of hours before having to go to work again.  I honestly don't know how he does it. 

Gathered 'round the table for dessert.

Son #1 who made me a first time mom 23 years ago.  So hard to believe. 

Son #3 who would not stop flaring his nostrils when I tried to take his picture so I told him I was gonna take it anyway.  And I did.  : )

My nephew Tristan who graduates from high school this year.

My niece Annie who absolutely hates having her picture taken. 

I actually caught her smiling but her eyes were half closed.  Haha!!
