We won't get to our house until Monday, but we arrived in my hometown, Carlinville, on Friday to visit Mom and spend Easter weekend with my brother's family.
Even though it was only around 6:00 p.m. when we got there, Mom was already in bed. She had forgotten we were coming. That didn't stop us from visiting a while though. Rich and I; my brother and SIL; their daughter and her family made sure that Mom was entertained for a while.
We enjoyed a lot of family time Friday evening and all day Saturday at my brother's and his wife's where we park when we're in town. Our niece's kids are so cute and we have such a good time with them. The guys got all the four wheelers out just before Rich and I went to visit Mom again.
We had brought Mom a bouquet of flowers Saturday afternoon and while we were there she got a package in the mail with a card and a bag of Easter candy from her brother, his wife, their daughter and her family who all live in Florida. It was so sweet of them to remember Mom on this special weekend! It made her so happy!
Rich and I had such a great visit with Mom Saturday afternoon and then we all went to see her again that evening. That time we took her a banana split from Dairy Queen...she had one great day!
Well, our snowbird days are obviously over, time to take that gadget off my sidebar...nah, maybe I'll just leave it there for now.
