Yeah, I know, I promised to post RT pictures. And I will. I swear. But first...Mother's Day at Washington Park -- TULIPFEST!!!
(By the way, all photos are from our terrific friends, Lisa and Rob. THANKS, GUYS!)
And there were other flowers too.
...and yellowy-orange flowers...
...and orangey-yellow flowers...
...and redish-white flowers.
(What? I don't know, I guess they're all tulips. It was Tulipfest.)
And here there be dragons!
<-- Tax Deduction the Elder
<-- Tax Deduction the Younger
And here's all of us, me and the Kessler Crew, including Jackie's Mom in the funky orange hat, and Rob and Lisa with their two girls, Princess the Elder and Princess the Younger. (Yes, Lisa and I have set the date for a double wedding for the kids. Why do you ask?)
My boys are so fabulous. They brought home projects they made for me in school: a flower pot (painted), another flower pot (not painted, but filled with silk flowers), a homemade address book, beautiful homemade (okay, schoolmade) cards, and a photo in a homemade frame. And they gave me new fuzzy slippers. Loving Husband got me a satin bathrobe and a matching nightie. Woot! We all had a great time with my mom, who swears this was the best Mother's Day ever. (Of course, that could have been the wine talking...) We love you, mom!
I hope all moms out there had a lovely day today.
Completely unrelated: Just watched The Sopranos. Holy crap. I need me a stiff drink.
