Happy Mother's Day to all! We had a great day Saturday, the whole family and the grandkids joined us at Stoney Creek Metropark for a family picnic. It was a little cool in the morning, but then it turned pretty nice and sunny after about 11 a.m. We brought hamburgers, hot dogs and corn on the cob, and Caroline helped with making our favorite potatoe salad. Grandpa and the boys, Darin and Matthew, kept a bonfire going in one of the parks grills to keep warm, and the girls, Sarah and Amber, got to ride bikes around the picnic grounds. My girls, Caroline and Wendy gave me a big Mother's day kiss! It was a grand day for all.
Well, this has been a busy month, on May 1st we celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary. It seems sometimes like yesterday, but so many things have filled the time, children and now grandchildren. What an experience it has been. AND now on Monday, May 7th was my 58th Birthday and if it wasn't for the aching bones and muscles, my mind still feels like in my 30's. My kids gave me cards and we did the little picnic to celebrate all of it, including Mother's day. Boy! How time flies when your having fun!........

How nice to have a picnic where the park is not-too-crowded! I can't remember the last time that happened with us. Well, ever since the pool area got re-modeled, so that would be about 8 years ago now.
Or maybe the cool weather kept away mere mortals...

Happy Birthday and Mother's Day all in one!
We have that around here also. Husband (the 9th)and Oldest Son (the 10th) and only Nephew (the 11th) always have their birthdays the same week we figure in time for mothers. Makes for a whole bunch of cards and phone calls.

Yumm, it has been a long time since I've had potato salad. A diet with the idea of getting slimmer leaves off spuds. Maybe a treat for a picnic can't be all bad, tho.
