Oops! She Did It Again...
...and again. I have been reminded (rather politely I must add!) that I never mentioned Bill's birthday or Mother's Day! I will just add a few pictures of that weekend... On Bill's BD, we were volunteers at a Welcome Spring party for families of deployed servicemen and women. The party was held on Wright Patterson Air Force Base. My family worked with the little ones and oh, you should have seen one precious tiny girl. Brooke decided she was enamored with Bill and would not leave his side. It was so sweet. I was pretty sure I was going to be pushed straight out of the picture by this younger woman...her Mommy said Bill looked a lot like Brooke's Daddy. *Just a wee bit older*. Yes, she DID say OLDER! But heck, for an *old* man of 52, he is still kinda sexy. Of course, he is NO Brian Dennehy but who is? I doubt that even Brian himself is always *Brian Dennehy*! Just think about that now! That evening we met our friends, T & R, for dinner at Abuelo's. Great food and great conversation. A perfect combination. On Mother's Day, Mom wore the most darling rose corsage that was a gift from her oldest grandson. We went to church where the minister said to warmly greet each Mom. Now, how to tell which ones are Moms, he asked. Look around for the women who seem the most tired and bingo! You have got yourself a Mom! We then headed to my brother and sister in law's home for a cook out. Yes, it was raining but the guys were still able to grill up some tasty goodies! We had 3 kinds of salads and fruit and veggies and chips and dips and a German Chocolate cake with chocolate chip ice cream. The cake was for Bill, at his request! We all sang the standard tune as he blew out 7 candles...5 for each decade and 2 for, well, the additional 2 years of course! There were sweet gifts for Bill and for each Mother...movies to watch and dogs to cuddle and smiling children and, well, not a bad day huh?
