Mother’s Day 2019

Mother’s day dawed bright and early. With my family standing over me with breakfast, flowers and present.

The plate was a flimsy paper one, so I followed the group out to the kitchen to eat. My sweet Karl got me flowers, and made this lovely breakfast.


My sweet Mirah made this for me in school. They are learning about similies. So…

Lucas’s gift, also made at school:

Even sweet Karen had a little something for me! She found these flowers on a walk in her neighborhood.


Mirah also gave me these, keepsakes from our weekend. A cup from lunch, the wristband from the hot springs, a flower from the bush outside, Rocks from the driveway…(Yeah this didn’t make it home.)

Krysta got pressed flowers from Karen, and a DVD box set of Anne of Green Gables from Zac.


Mirah and Lucas and Karen, out with the “pewers” again.

It took about an hour to get the kids dress, house ready to check out, the car packed and ready to go.

We were off to Fish Lake!

Here are the kids, making a pit stop.

We got to the Marina, and the Whitmore’s were stopped taking a picture of their feet, and Lucas wanted in, then Karl got in too.



There was still ice on the lake. Seems like the season hadn’t really started yet.



We had thought of maybe fishing…but it turned out that it was a day for skipping rocks.

Karl did some impressive skips, and Karen asked for some tips.


Lucas was just going for it.

Mirah found a tiny pink rock that looked like a heart…and gave it to me-for Mother’s Day.


“Too Sunny!”



Karen was having so much success, Mirah wanted to try and learn too.

He wasn’t really getting it.

We said goodbye to the Whitmores and then drove the 3 hours home.

When we got home, we all crashed:


Sigh, this perfect pair.

Happy Mothers Day
