Mother's Day Photos

Here are some photos from Mother's Day. The day started out with Lexi helping me to make blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs. I let her do most of the work, but guided her. The pancakes were awesome. That was a nice Mother's Day gift from her. After breakfast, we headed to Moss Beach. We probably should have started our travels much earlier, because everyone else had the same idea. We met my son Ryan and his girlfriend, Katie at the beach. They showed up with sandwiches from a gourmet deli. I had the "The Thanksgiving Sandwich" It was yummy. The weather was a little breezy, but we snuggled up with blankets and kept warm. We enjoyed watching the Pelicans fly over us. I tried so hard to get a good picture of them, but I just couldn't get it. We also saw sea lions. It was so cute to watch their little heads pop up every once in a while. Now, I will describe who is who in the pictures.
This is my daughter, Jennifer and her daughter, Lexi.


This is me with my little sweetie.

This is my handsome son, Ryan.


Here is a picture of me and Bill. Not such a good photo with the wind blowing us, but that's the way we looked.

Now, here's a nice picture. This is my son's new girlfriend, Katie. She is such a sweetie. And, speaking of "sweetie" she is a Pastry Chef and graduated from the CA. Culinary Acedemy with Ryan.

And, here is the yummy dessert that she made for us. Strawberry shortcake.

Now for the good part, Ryan gave me a big bouquet of flowers, Jennifer gave me some beautiful tops from the womens clothing store that she manages, Lexi gave me an ornament that says "BFF", because that's what we are. And, Bill gave me a gift that I have wanted for so long...A nice camera!!! I have always had a point and shoot camera and have wanted to make the move up, so he bought me what I wanted. It won't arrive until tomorrow, but that's okay. I can wait for my Cannon Rebel Xsi. Now next time we go to the beach, maybe I can get a better picture of the Pelicans :)

Lori, I think it is illegal to have children the age of yours and look younger than them. Everytime I see your blog photo I think you must just be out of college.
Glad you had a great mother's day, wind and all.
