Mother's Day

Yeah, it was a while ago. We met up with extended family in Dundee for an afternoon of food and fun. Willem was coming down with something and was having no part of the fun until well into the afternoon.

Shaun's Uncle Mark planned the whole deal and grilled up a storm, including chicken satay with peanut sauce. Nice! When Shaun asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day, it took me about 2 seconds to ask for a box of these caramels (sold at our Whole Foods.) They are my new favorite treat in all the land.

We had some built-in entertainment on hand...outgoing toddler learning to walk is always a family crowd-pleaser.

I love these two in these tiny chairs. As you can see from Willem's expression, even unprecedented permission to drink an entire can of root beer wasn't improving his mood.

May birthdays were celebrated with strawberry pie.

It was especially fun to be on hand to celebrate a first Mother's Day for cousins Amy and Jared with their daughter Sunita. If this face doesn't say "Happy Mother's Day," nothing does.

Thanks for posting those... I absolutely love the one of Willem and Sunita - so cute. They look like an old married couple.

They totally do, Amy! We'll have to get you the rest of these. We had a lot of great ones of Sunita.
