mY 1st mOmMa's DaY

Mothers Day was wonderful, what can I say! The joys of being a mom are infinite! It's such a blessing to be a mom and have a wonderful husband; I thank my Heavenly Father daily for such wonderful gifts.
My mom and I went to lunch on Sat. and did a little bit of shopping!
Then Josh and I had a bunch of people over on Sunday for a Mother's Day BBQ! Oh it was fun to get everyone together. We had our neighbors, Walt & Gene, then our Friends Tom & Joy, Pat and my parents as well as Scotty one of Josh's co-workers. We had hamburgers, polish sausages, my dad made the marvelous Hug Hess salad, Joy brought potato salad, and we had chips and lemonade. For desert we had Marie Callender's pies. A peach lattice with vanilla ice cream and a Razzelberry Satin thaw and serve. Oh yummy yummy.

Not everyone was in the picture, some people had left.

This is Grandpa Pat ( he's not really his grandpa but we call him that)! He hasn't held a little one since his kids were little 40+ years ago

Josh totally surprised me with an amazing gift-- I couldn't believe it. We had needed a case for our super nice Olympus camera ( only downfall to the camera is it wont take B&W pics). A while back I was pestering Josh to let me get a cannon powershot that has some freaking awesome features. But he talked some sense into me and said that we had a perfectly good, if not great camera that was not even a year old. So after 15-20 minutes of pestering I gave up and had kind of given up on the idea. Well Josh brings the old camera out and a cute little case and I thought oh awesome we've needed one of these. So I open the case to put the camera in and found the Cannon Powershot that I had wanted!! I was so excited I couldn't stop thanking and kissing him!!!

These are some of the millions of pic I took messing around with the settings....I isolated the green in his blanket.
This one is obviously got the blue isolated! It's so fun stay tuned for more crazy pics!

YAY Leslie! I'm glad you got that camera. We have loved ours so far. You'll have a lot of fun with it!
That barbecue really looks like so much fun. I'm curious about your dad's hug hess salad. What is it? Has he made it for any family bbq and I'm just not recognizing the name?
happy mothers day! you are an awesome mom.
