Mothers Day II

This weekend was full of family.

I was excited to see my cousin Josh and uncle Jon on Friday night as they had traveled to Fort Fun  for Josh to play in a basketball tournament.  I had not seen either of them in quite a while and it was great to be able to spend some time together.  Tyler and Janna, Dustin and I ate dinner together and then headed over to the tournament to watch for a while.  Josh's team did not win the game that night but it was fun to watch my 6"7' 16 year old cousin in action!  And hugging him made me feel shrimpy!  Ha!

Saturday my mom and step dad were here.  We got to take them to our soon-to-be new house and show them around before all heading out to dinner.  We had a nice dinner at Vince's Steakhouse and mom provided chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.  It was awesome to get to spend Mothers day with my Mom for once....I haven't gotten to do that in YEARS because of my work schedule.  It was great to be able to honor her in person!

Sunday, we had Dustins nephews wedding to go to.  We got lost on our way there and ended up in the middle of nowhere.  The funny part of the story is that we both knew how to get there but figured we would follow the GPS (maybe it knows a faster way?!) anyhow.  I truly believe that our getting lost was a GOD thing--We completely missed all the "blah blah blah MOTHERS blackety blah" talk at church!  We got there just in time for the wedding ceremony and then afterwords had a nice time at the reception chatting with so many different family friends we had not seen in a long time!  Congrats, Jeremy and Maria!

On the way home we stopped to see the woman who Tyler and I always called Grandma Gerber (above).  She is really an to my dad but she was always Grandma Helen to us and we have such great memories of spending time at her house in the summers!  She and I got to chat for quite a while...a fun walk down memory lane! 

All in all, a good weekend!  :)


  1. I saw you from a distance on Sunday (I was in the balcony). Glad you made it there...funny about the GPS!

    I think Grandma Gerber is pretty great too - pretty stinkin' sharp for being 98!

  2. Thanks, Sarah! I wondered if I would run into you Sunday...we got there so late we didn't really get to see anyone from Bluffton church's unless they were at the reception too. Sorry we missed each other...
