Happy Mother's Day

My Mother's Day started with church. The Young Women were in charge of a brunch for all the mothers in our congregation. We had chicken salad on rolls with some fruit and for dessert a scoop of ice cream with a cookie. It turned out really lovely and I am extremely proud of the job the Young Women. I also want to send a thank you to Sis. Jarvis (the younger) and the Faith in God for Girls as well as Sis. Shaw and the Primary. The tables and centerpieces were not only delicious to the eyes but also to the taste!! (Pictures to come)

After church my family headed to the beach to meet up with my parents and brother. We went to my Uncle's property on a private road. The road has a pool and is beach front.

This was the beginning of our adventure. You can see the dock to the beach in the background.

As soon as I gave the go ahead the boy was off! He left us all in the dust. By the time we got down to the beach this is what I saw....

It was at this point that I realized with my unexplainable and very real fear of fish, I haven't taken that boy to the beach since he was 6. So I've never gone over beach safety! I started screaming for him and waving for him to come back to shore so I could go over it and calm my troubled heart. As I'm screaming and waving for him I remember the kid wears glasses AND hearing aids. So he ain't seeing or hearing nothing! Luckily my brother was there and swam out to get him.

Georgia had never been to the beach. She hated the walk through the sand. What I didn't get on camera (besides was her walk through the sand. She was holding Daddy's finger and when she wouldn't move I said "Hold Mommy's hand." So she grabbed my finger and then hung from our fingers refusing to put her feet on the sand. It was really funny. She did, however, warm up to the beach. (More than I might like.)

I love this picture. The happiness on my boy's face and then my Daddy, aka Popeye, in the background.

I hope your Mother's Day was filled with everything that makes your life wonderful. Mine certainly was!

Happy Mother's Day!
