I had a MARVELOUS day!
Have I ever mentioned that my family is a wee...high strung? Irish you know!
I probably should have written something about Mother's Day on Monday..but I really didn't have all that many pictures to post..as I had, as usual simply forgotten about picture taking.
I had a really nice day..starting with breakfast with my Granddaughter. And it went beautifully from there. You see all the daughters are in Florida on vacation together. The sons and grandchildren are here..so we all got together..
This is just a shot of three of my 18 Grandchildren. Eian, Ireland and Joey on the far right. Me in the middle. The sun was blinding as you can see. We had a cookout by the pool and the menu was extensive as my wonderful daughter in law and son did the cooking..and they own Jammin'Bread Bakery and restaurant.
Me in all my wrinkled glory...like I said...I was short on pictures.
Ok...now you do see the look on numbathreeson's handsome face...right?? Well..you see, he bought me a card. One of those that you can record your message and then the recipient plays it back. There is a tiny button..anyway...it didn't work. We pushed and pulled tabs and pushed some more..nothing. Numbathreeson was getting more and more impatient and..yes..disappointed as he had spent lots of time composing just the right sentiment..for me..his beloved Mother! Everyone was talking at once..
Dan was beginning to use language that should not be used in front of children..oh..I forgot I guess they are all adults now.
Anyway..the card became more battered...and ragged as everyone attempted to help..
FINALLY...without Dan knowing..it recorded..and here is what he played back for me.
Sorry..but I'm truthful on this blog. "She just doesn't know how hard I worked on this. I just wanted to do this one (explitive) thing right!!"
So..you see..he was NOT a happy camper. Now me...I treasure this card..it is Dan in all his Duffy glory! I love that young man. Oh..I forgot again! Dan is 48 but he will ALWAYS be my baby boy!
You really MUST enlarge this photo of these HUGE delicious cupcakes! We had these and tall glasses of ice tea and everything was back to normal! I had a most Happy Mother's Day this year. One I will remember but I missed my daughters!
P.S. Dan looks EXACTLY like his Dad in that picture! Yep! EXACTLY!
