Mother's Day SIMC

We all gathered at my Mother-in-law's house 
to celebrate Mother's Day.

I made lasagna, and we had salad, texas toast 
and three yummy desserts; 
pineapple upside down cake and 
chocolate delight from my mom,
and Shelbie made monkey bread.

Heather & Hayleigh

Heather and Hayleigh,
and behind them,
my mom and sister.
4 generations!
My mom & me

After dinner was eaten and gifts were opened, 
we all headed out to the pool.

Hayleigh loved splashing in the water!

Elayna taking a break
(yes, those are my toes.
I mostly soaked up the sun.
The water is still a LITTLE chilly for me!)

Elayna cheesin'

Tim trickling water over Hay-bug's head.
It made her giggle!

The Mamas: mine on the left and Byron's on the right.

MIL has two armadillos living under her deck.
They came out to play today.

MIL's dogs let them know
that they were NOT welcome there.

We all had a lovely Mother's Day.  
The card my son gave me got me all choked up.  
The gift from my girls will be here later this month.
OH and my wonderful Mother-in-Law
 gave me a firepit like hers for my birthday!  I LOVE IT.
I was asking where she got hers
 and mentioned that I'd always wanted one,
and BAM now I have one!

I'm feeling very blessed!
Hope you all had a wonderful day too.

At what temperature do ya'll get into the pool? It's been in the low 80's, but I thought it might still be too cool. Love the pictures! Sounds like a wonderful Mother's Day!

Glad you had a wonderful day. We were by the water too this weekend and like you, I stayed out. Too chilly!

Well that looks like a perfect Mother's Day! So nice! I can tell ya we definitely were not swimming outside on Mother's Day. The high was 46 degrees! I'm just a tad jealous. ;)
Happy Mother's Day!
