RELAXING MOTHER'S DAY FOR ME!

Mother's Day was a blessing! It started off with a wonderful service at church! The message really spoke to my mom, so she was really blessed.

I got lots of goodies that my kids made in class, my sister in law gave me the Love Dare book, and my sweet friend Marlene gave me a prayer journal!

After service, we went to lunch with my mom. We love Macaroni Grill! Totally kid friendly with affordable prices! Yah..my kind of place! After lunch, we came home and watched The Case Of Benjamin Button, and then went back to church for the evening service!

Me, my mom, & my kiddos before we left church.
I love this picture of them! They all look naturally happy..lol.

Me & my mom! Everyone at church kept telling her she looked more like my sister. I know that's a compliment for her, but what does that say about me..lol?? She's lookin' pretty darn good for 63!

Preparing the olive oil for the bread! Yum!

I would have taken pictures of everyone elses food but my husband started to get annoyed. He was like, "Let them eat now." Hehe.

Looks like you had a wonderful mother's day. don't worry you don't look older than your mother all of my Filipino in laws look way young, I think it is just natural in your skin...of course Mary Kay products will help keep your skin even younger looking....lol
The food looks wonderful...now do you guys strip the shrimp, my in laws don't and I can't eat that way...loo
Your kids are just doll babies, I love them like my own.

It's been a long time since I've been to Macaroni Grill - good to know it's kid friendly. Glad you had a wonderful day surrounded by your loved ones. I agree - your mom looks fantastic. Filipinos know how to age well :) At least I hope I do too.

Stephanie said...

something funny I never ate at Macaroni Grill until I came to Okinawa and I love it!!!!! Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I decided that I wanted to eat somewhere that I knew there wouldn't be a crowd so we went to a 50's burger joint. Had a chili cheese burger, man was it good!!!!

Kelli said...

What a great picture of you, your mom, and your kids! All that food looks so yummy!!

Sounds like it was great! I must admit I am jealous! I wanted Macaroni Grill so BAD, but we don't have one here!

Sara said...

Yum! Love Mac Grill, and yours is my fave dish too! Your mom is beautiful, and looks very young, but so do you. I have a family like that too, no one looks their real age. You will love it in about 20 years! LOL! I'm glad you had a good mothers day! You deserve it !

Laura said...

I have never heard of Macaroni Grill but I think my kids would have loved it when they were little. Maybe they would even now.

Awesome pictures, y'all look so pretty/handsome. Your mom looks awesome!

Mom in Idaho said...

Sounds like a great mother's day! your mom does look so young...but you gotta think you look so young too. (I almost said "for your age" LOL!) I think it's hereditary. I love Macarooni Grill too. That's my dad's favorite restaraunt. MMMM. I have a recipe for bread just about like theirs. Maybe I'll make it tomorrow.
