and somehow this is the only picture i took?
I brought these lilacs when the kids and i drove down to Vermont for the weekend to surprise my mom for her retirement party. congratulations Mom! my sister also came in from Seattle. my mom was very pleased as you can imagine! the kids didn't sleep much, lots of treats were eaten and much fun with the family was had. oh, and lots of driving (8+ hours each way). now i am preparing for Maxine's birthday party on Saturday. whew!
(we did stop somewhere fun on our way through upstate NY. I'll tell you about it soon... )
