Mothers Day 2013

Special meal

Kiah and Anna made scrambled eggs and whole wheat waffles with sliced strawberries, stewed apples, whipped cream, or a combination thereof.

Beautiful, colorful flowers that I don't have to worry about watering.
Afternoon hike

In keeping with our semi-annual tradition, I used my Mother's Day leverage to request a family hike at beautiful Houghton Falls. Blue skies but only around 50 degrees.

Snowball fight

It's not every year you can throw snowballs on Mother's Day.

Walking on the beach

By Lake Superior near Bayfield, WI. Sand wasn't cold, but the water was. Anna said, "It's almost swimmable." Maybe if you're a penguin. Be at least another month before this Mama ventures into the water.

Catan game

Anna won, the stinker. Seems like they should let Mom win on Mother's Day.

Evening lake walk to watch the sunset.
Dairy Queen ice cream cones
Caught Dad eating ice cream while we were gone


Phone call from my son Andrew

Evening debrief on Mom and Dad's bed

Hugs all around.
Full emotional tanks.
I had a nice day.
Thanks girls.


  1. Thanks for this glimpse into how your family treated you like a Queen.

  2. Dairy Queen for dessert! Yes!

  3. Sweet, glad you had a good Mother's Day!

  4. That was a day of love to remember! The snowball fight picture reminded me of a time when we discovered patches snow on shaded ground in the woods as late as June. That brought back a good memory for me. I love how your children came together to talk on the bed. Such closeness is rare in some families. Happy Mother's Day Angie!

  5. Sweet!! Guess what? I got to go on a hike for Mother's Day too. :-)
    Next time you are here in Cameron, I will take you. You will love it.

  6. What fullness of blessing! Looks like a day full of memories in the making. Congrats on a beautiful Mother's Day
