My Saturday celebration in honor of Mom was fantastic. She and Dad came over around 3 pm and after a short visit, we headed off. Our original plan was to grill out. But something she said about craving a great salad at the airshow the other day inspired us to change-up and take her to Ruby Tuesday. They have one honking BIG salad bar and it is the best in terms of quality ( and cleanliness ) in town. Plus they have great food. Kristie and I like going there and a lot of the times we'll order an entree, add the salad bar, eat that like a pack of ravenous wolves and end up taking most of the main food home.
After a great early dinner there, we got home and settled back to enjoy a movie mom had wanted to see. A wonderful idea since Kristie had made her unbelievable ( low fat ) Banana Dream Supreme pie for us to devour.
When the flick ended we tore-into some of that pie, and mom opened her card and gift. Next over a cup of my new Kenyan coffee we all shared the vacation photos.
Sitting on the sofa, sippin' java and remembering the "old days" capped of a great mothers day.
I am so lucky. I got a fantastic mom.
I you all had a Happy Mothers Day .
