Mom’s Day BBQ

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there! A little over a week ago, I began racking my brain over what I could get my Mom on Mother’s Day. She is so difficult to buy for, she doesn’t like Jewelry or perfumes and her tastes are very specific otherwise. A gift certificate would seem like I didn’t even try and I wasn’t even going to try to pick any clothing out for her.

An idea finally hit me and I wrote my Sister an email asking if she would be game for a Mother’s Day BBQ. After a little back and fourth we decided that Saturday the 13th would actually fit better into everyone’s plans and the weather forecast for that day looked more appealing as well.

Everyone converged on my house yesterday afternoon and all in all, things went down very well. My Sister’s Hubby (Artie) was appointed “Grill-Master”, the boys did some swimming until their lips turned purple and teeth began to chatter and I gave A.T.V. rides up the mountain.

Here are a few pix of the occasion…

    You did not include Wendy or yourself or even Tim and Ruth Ann in your pictures, but you had that ugly one of me and dad! What am I to do with you son? But thanks for the great Mothers days my son, ever thing was perfect. Sending oceans of love, MOM

    I thought it was a nice portrait of your mom and dad, Mike. Very homey and cozy feel about it.

    Yes… I thought it was a nice picture as well Barb. My Mother however, never likes any pictures that include herself! As for the rest of the clan not being included… No pictures were taken of myself, Wendy, Tim or Ruth. I suppose nobody wanted to record our “Ugly Mugs” for posterity!

    Doesn’t the water look awesome? I love the liner we picked out. It gives the water a cool & refreshing appearance!
