Wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!

So, I'm a little late in posting about last weekend, but I can assure you it was WONDERFUL! My cousin owns a house at Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma and 11 of us gathered there to relax for the weekend and celebrate Mother's Day. We had only one bathroom, so there were a few dicey moments, especially early in the AM, but we managed and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

A walk across the street and between 2 houses took us straight down to the lake. This is where the kid's Dad showed them rock skipping....


And acted goofy with them...




We got there late Friday afternoon and watched "The Blind Side" until quite late in the evening. After awaking at 6:30 a.m., we all got ready and went into nearby Grove, OK where we went shopping at the "Cheapo Depo." (No, that's not a typo!) That is where I picked up this bright, lovely (complete with votive holder) to hang on my patio!



We ate ALOT over the weekend. Shelley and Lauren rocked the cooking and no one went hungry.



There was also some awesome grilling going on!


But first it was necessary to shuck the corn...




The kids played and played.... with the dogs...

and on bikes...



There was a feisty, 3-hour long game of Phase 10...


Which was repeated on Sunday morning...



There were ball games...



And my beautiful girl even posed for me!




I crocheted and crocheted and made quite a bit of progress on my Babette blanket. Pics of that will be coming soon. And did I mention that not too far up the road is an Alpaca farm where they sell Alpaca yarn? Oh yes, yes, yes! I didn't make it by there this time, but I will on the next trip, which I'm already looking forward to.

Finally we were on our way home Sunday afternoon with a very tired crew...



It was a wonderful trip and when I got home I was treated to the arrival of my Mother's Day gift on Wed. My new dishes! Aren't they amazing and bright?

We don't have phase 10 here in the UK but my daughter brought a set of Phase 10 cards back from the US last year so We all play it too.
Have a lovely week .
