Mother's Day was wonderful. Simple and wonderful. E let me sleep in until 8:30 while he got up with the babe. Then we went to brunch at my Aunt Laura and Uncle Mike's house and that evening we had E's family over for dinner. It was rainy and cold all day. We had hoped to eat brunch in the garden and we also hosted E's family for a BBQ. But even with the rain, we had such a wonderful day nonetheless.
Laura's brunch was a potluck style. I offered up E's amazing biscuits. Because, well, they are amazing. He's been working on and perfecting his recipe for about five years .
We love the pouch looking over the backyard over at Laura's house. James happily visits the trees and can watch the chickens (remember the chickens?!) from his little hideout. Here he watching Laura down below collecting eggs for our breakfast. Love that smile. He loves his Auntie Laura.
I love our big family. I was a little disappointed that we didn't have a big Mother's Day Brunch last year, but this year totally made up for it.
And then late in the afternoon E's family came over. We had been playing on making them bratwurst for a year. We wanted it to be their first BBQ at our house of the season, but alas, the brats were good but nobody but E ventured out into the pouring rain.
I asked E to get a shot of James and I for Mother's Day. He was too fast for the dimly lit house. And Chelsea and Joe? Ask them to bring dessert, you will be amazed.
