Mother’s Day Through the Years

Whether you’re a mom or a daughter or a mother figure to someone special, I hope you’re enjoying your Mother’s Day weekend. I’ve had the pleasure of spending this weekend with my mom. She lives 400 miles away, so we don’t often get to spend Mother’s Day together.

We started the day on the porch, sipping coffee and chatting. Then after church, we all went to lunch at the General Warren Inne. It was lovely, and the food was delicious. We need to go there more often. Afterwards, we took a few minutes to grab these pictures in the garden. We don’t look alike AT ALL, do we??

My son took this one of Paul and me with both of my parents.

And of course, I had to get the obligatory photo with the kids. (This was at our house earlier in the day.)

Taking a Mother’s Day picture is sort of a tradition in our family, as is sharing my Mothers Day Through the Years photos here on the blog. I’m missing a few, but this is what I’ve got.

This was Mother’s Day circa 2000 — my first official Mother’s Day, although I was expecting in 1999 and got a sweet card from my aunt that year.

Mother’s Day 2002 — this is the day I discovered I was pregnant with Caroline. David clearly had other things on his mind and was trying to get away from me, but I was determined to get my Mother’s Day photo.
