Sunday is Mother’s Day. My mom spends 7 months out of the year living in Florida. Then she comes back to NC for 5 months. She usually comes the beginning of May and returns to FL in October. Since she is here in time for Mother’s Day I thought it would be nice to have the family gather to celebrate. My brother and sister and I all live about 2 hours apart, one in Boone and one in Asheville. My mom lives in Burnsville. Gathering here makes sense.
My son, Ted, recently got engaged to a girl we just love. My mom and my sister have not had a chance to meet her, so another reason to get together.
Thought you’d enjoy seeing what it takes for the 16, yes sixteen, of us to sit down together:
And for those of you who will count, there are only 15 places set: Steve will not be eating with us tomorrow. He has a kayak race he wants to participate in. He’ll return mid-afternoon for visiting.
