Happy Mother's Day!



My sister D thought it would be nice to take our 84 year old mom out for lunch for Mother's Day. She thought it would be a nice surprise if both I came and my other sister A came. We choose Saturday over Sunday as it would be less busy. We met at the Muggins restaurant at 11:00 am. As my sister A and I sat in the car ... I said, there they are ... so we ducked in the car not wanting to give away to my mom that we were joining them.

So my sister D and my mom wandered into the restaurant and my sister A and I followed a couple minutes later. As we got there, my sister D and my mom were coming out of the restaurant and going into the bar ... apparently the wait was going to be too long ... that is when my sister D noticed us. We said nothing and we just followed along. We went into the bar and walked a short distance and then my sister D and my mom turned back into us. They were looking for a booth but saw none. My mom glanced at us but it didn't click. We followed my sister D and my mom for a few steps as they decided where to sit ... once again, they turned and looked our way and that is when my mom finally realized who was following them around. She later said, she thought the lady following her looked like her daughter. It was cute.

What a really lovely story and a wonderful surprise for your mum.

I remember having "girls" lunches with my Nain (welsh for grandmother), my mum and her sister. Us "girls" would meet up and it made me feel so special.

I hope that when my kids grow up, they will do things like that for me. Its special.

Nothing like a surprise on a special day -- and the surprise was nearly on you when you mother didn't "recognize" the two of you!! lol!!!

Beating the crowds the day before was definitely the way to go!
