Happy Mother's Day to Me!!!

I think the best part about Mother's Day is Birch getting to spend it with the family!  Any Sunday that starts and ends with my Lover is a GREAT day!
 The Hen and her Chicks
Our dinner was super tasty but our dessert was even more memorable.  Birch had been told about these apple apricot roses.  Not only are these remarkable in their looks but they were super tasty!  Let me just remind you that Birch cooks grilled cheese sandwiches a few times a year and occasionally pancakes from a box.  I'm thinking the man might have a talent he is hiding under a bushel. 
Sure do love my kiddos!!!

Family...it's what it is about

Uncle Lyle and my dad decided it was time for some brother bonding time.  We were the lucky ones to get to spend a little time together while they were on their way to Diamond Lake for a few days of fishing and staying at a cabin from their childhood.
 Uncle Lyle has always been a favorite of mine!  He always makes you feel like a million bucks.

My dad may be older but Uncle Lyle beats him in height!  Perhaps this is where Alex gets his height from?  We're looking forward to future visits!
