Mothers Day Weekend

It was a busy weekend for us.  It was my weekend to work, and we had things going on every night.  Here's a brief recap.

Tom, Mom, Bob

 On Friday night, Bob and I along with his brother Tom and wife Bonnie, took his Mom and step-dad out for supper and went back to their home for awhile to celebrate Mothers day.  As always, we had a nice time together.



On Saturday evening, my side of the family gathered to celebrate my niece Arianna's graduation from high school.  The whole family was able to be there, except of course Andy in Kentucky.  As you can see, everyone is having a good time - good food and lots of laughs!


Here's my step-mom Ann with a flower arrangement we had for her for Mothers Day.


Sunday evening, Heather and Andrew, and Laura and Aaron and girls came over.  Here are the girls having fun sitting with Grandpa.


Aaron had smoked some pork for pulled pork sandwiches, and it was delicious!

 Heather made these little pies.  They were caramel apple, and so cute!



 Speaking of cute - here is Ruby enjoying her pie.



 After supper, we wandered around outside for a while.  Who needs a merry-go-round, when you have an Uncle Andrew?



Here's the pretty gift I got from my kids.  The top of it, on the left was decorated by Alaina, the bottom by Ruby!


And inside was a DNA kit!  I had given Bob one for Christmas, and it's very interesting to see the results.  It takes a while to get back, but I'll let you know what I find out with my results.

What a nice weekend!  Hope you enjoyed yours too.

Your DNA kit will reveal that you are a total gem, from a long line of gems! Also I want one of those little pies. xoxo

I thought you probably had to work this weekend, but it looks as if it didn't stop you from having fun. Glad your weekend evenings were special. The caramel apple pies your daughter made are so pretty and I'm certain from the look on Ruby's face that they were just as yummy. :)

I just bought the DNA kits for my hubby and I and am waiting for the results. Glad you know you felt it was worthwhile.

I love the picture of the Uncle Andrew and the girls - so funny! Between Andrew and Grandpa the girls have their own playground. :)

Can't wait to see your DNA results!

Heather's caramelized apple pies are art forms! She is amazing! Ruby, on the other hand, has proven that they are not just pretty but scrumptious as well! Have fun with your DNA kit!

That caramel & apple pie looks delicious! Joe and I did the Ancestry DNA a couple of years ago when it first came out (right after the BETA testing). The more people who join in, the better the results get. I love following it! All your celebrations look like so much fun. I love that your big family gets together so often to celebrate life! Such a blessing!

Sounds like you had a memorable Mother's Day! The photos tell all! Those grand kids of yours are so cute! My daughter just lost her MIL and she gave one of those DNA kits to her husband to cheer him. I will be interested to hear what yours says!
