Mother's Day

I had a very enjoyable Mother's Day on Sunday. The children all made cards, and a banner, and after church we had family and friends here to celebrate. Emily did the hosting and cooked an amazing meal.

The feast:
Everything was delicious -- especially the deluxe burgers with all the toppings. We also had some amazing drinks, which shall appear this summer on The Cooks Next Door.

The two Lauras:
The "boys" playing: check out how they color-coordinated!

Andrew designed this lego project for me:

Our meal ended with strawberry shortcake:

Only two more days of school! It's getting exciting to think about a bit more free time. Well, free time to do more housework, etc......
