A Mother's Day Visit With My Youngest Daughter and Her Kids

I am late doing Wednesday's Walk today, because I have been out running errands with my friend. Most of you have already linked your posts, but if not, just click on the button below and after writing your post, link up with Mr. Linky on Lynnette's blog

I had a very nice Mother's Day this year. On Saturday my middle daughter, Lynnette asked me to go to lunch with her and then go on to a huge Antique Mall. We took over two hours browsing through the mall and had a great time talking. This was a rare treat to get to spend time alone with her since she has 6 kids and she keeps busy homeschooling, and being a wife and mother. I don't have pictures, but she took some and she posted them on her blog, (Dancing Barefoot...button on my sidebar).

Then on Sunday, my oldest daughter Lisa asked us to come over for lunch. She is a very good cook, and she made us green chili shredded beef tacos, homemade salsa, salad, chips and iced tea. It was so good we all had to have seconds. For dessert we had ice cream with toppings. Then I got a nice pair of silver and howlite earrings. They were from "Inspiranza Designs", and I love them! Lisa sells this jewelry, and it is really nice! We enjoyed an afternoon of visiting and it was really nice! We took several pictures with Lisa and Brad and their daughter Bailey with Lisa's camera and so she is going to post them sometime soon on her blog. (Uniquely Us...button on my sidebar)

After we got home, our youngest daughter Lonna and her four kids came over to visit for awhile too. Lonna is a single mom and she works full time and the four kids go to school and are involved in several activities, so we don't get to see them a lot. They live about 30 minutes away too, so it isn't easy to just stop by,... anyway, I was appreciative and happy to see her and the kids on Mother's Day. I took some pictures and so I am posting them today.

I am so blessed to have my husband, my daughters, my son-in-laws and my 11 grand kids in my life. I thank God for all of them!

I was finally able to sit and read some more Wednesday Walks -Your post made me think of the verse that says "her children will rise and call her blessed!".. what a special weekend you had.. you deserve this..I Was also admiring the shelf behind your pictures... with some spice holders, etc. That is FABULOUS!! Do you use it for real spices, or collections? I loved it!!!
Ok-- I am coveting,, uh-oh!

I'm so glad that you had such a lovely weekend with all of us girls. I know I enjoyed my time out with you VERY much and I'm sure that Lisa and Lonna were blessed to be able to spend time with you too.

I'm not used to seeing Lonna with glasses. Are they new? The kids are growing up so much. We saw William walking with some friends at the Valley Center city wides but didn't realize it was him until we were passed so we didn't get to wave or anything.

Love you.
