Celebrating Mother's Day

Gord and I drove to his sister, Judy's, for a Mother's Day celebration. Judy and her husband, Doug, live about 2.5 hours NE of us.

Gord's mom and stepdad, Minnie and Keith, live in the same town as Judy and Doug and came over for supper, as did Judy and Doug's son, Kyle, his wife, Kerri, and their kids, Madison and Colton.

Doug and Judy made a delicious meal of roast beef, venison (I passed), humungous baked potatoes, biscuits, cheese, salad and pies (lemon meringue and blueberry).  Minnie brought deviled eggs.

I was feeling really stuffed up and drowsy (a cold coming on?) so had a nap for a couple hours after supper.  Gord woke me up when Minnie and Keith were leaving to say good-bye.  So alas, I didn't get any pictures of them.

took it over when he went to the bathroom
When Gord came back, he knew who was boss!

We are spending the night at Judy and Doug's and will head home tomorrow.

As always, it was fun to get together and see everyone!

Happy Mother's Day to Minnie, Judy and Kerri!

There's nothing like a low key celebration with the family to show each other love and appreciation :)
