For our family, we sieze the moment to celebrate occasions. 
Hence, I was thrilled for a few hours to be celebrated as a mother, on a pre-Mother's Day evening.  First to a local restaurant for dinner and precious time together.

On one side of the wooden booth...

And on the other side.  All the females in our family, minus one very important one who was unable to grab a flight east for the evening.  We sure did miss her!

I love how these three immediately pick up where they last left off, being together.  I like how the older ones care for the youngest one, and how she in turn looks adoringly up to them.

Feeling more blessed than I can express here.

Next stop, the old ice cream shop in the middle of the town square.  One could feel the nostalgia as one entered through the old glass door.

Because it was near closing time, we had the shop almost to ourselves.
The enthusiasm for the young ones was evident as they eagerly tried to look into the glass cabinets.

"Chocolate chip mint" was the popular choice for most everyone.

 But soon the cones turned into dishes of ice cream, making it so much easier to eat, or so they told her:)

 Before we knew it, it was again time to say "goodbye".

With more treasured memories to carry with us.  For this maw maw, it was a most special "Mother's Day" gift.

Thank you for allowing me to share my fun evening with you today.
