Mother's Day

Sunday, May 9, 2010

So what do you do when it's Mother's Day and your
hubby is halfway around the world?
You make reservations at a really nice luncheon buffet and invite your mother, your cousin visiting from Germany and of course the children.

Here's a picture of the restaurant...

The fountains around the restaurant...

The only person missing was the Colonel!

Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!

  6. Morning Sunshine,
    Looks like a very lovely restaurant.
    That was a great idea to take your Mom and family there. When hubby isn't around you have to improvise,
    and that was a great way to do it.
    Hope the day was lovely in every way. Such a nice pic of you with the family too! Loved seeing the pics of the restaurant as well, it is really apretty place. So now, tell me what did you have to eat there, and how was the food!
    As good as the place looks I hope!!
    You have a great week Sweetie,
    Happy Mother's day (just a bit belated) lol
    Blessings and love, Nellie

  8. Sweet, sweet photos of you, your Mom, Ellie and your children! What a lovely place to share Mother's Day together. Hoping the time passes quickly until the return of your dear husband!

    Kindly, ldh

  9. Looks like you celebrated your day in style. Beautiful place! Last year, we treated our loved ones to a swanky restaurant for Mother's Day Brunch and (unbeknownst to us) it was $50 per person, which cost us $250 for a brunch! The sad thing is, the food was blah and the atmosphere was like a graduation banquet! Horrible experience, but we were with people we loved. Glad you enjoyed your day, with the Colonel in your heart.
