I headed out of town, all by my lonesome, on Friday afternoon to spend a little time with my sister-in-law on the west side of the state, and to attend my nephew's (my sister's son) graduation from Northwest University on Saturday. Kris and I met at Anthony's Homeport in Kirkland for dinner, loving the sunshine and beautiful view of Lake Washington along with some great food.
The next morning was Ryan's graduation, so I left Kris' early and got to Overlake Christian Church in good time, to meet with my family and find seating together. And my daughter, Melanie, surprised me by coming over from Kennewick that morning!

Then on Mother's Day, after church, several of my kids came to spend the afternoon with me in the back yard. The weather was just so gorgeous and I've been so busy lately, I wanted to relax and enjoy my kids and my roses!
The best kind of Mother's Day to me.
