Sunday (Mother's Day) after church we went home and my hubby grilled out burgers & hot dogs. Ruby came over and brought lovely pink tulips & Rocher chocolates, and more BBQ fixin's. We had just finished eating and sat down to relax when I looked out the window and saw some guy walking up the entryway to our house with a tree. I must've screamed out loud, because my DH and Ruby both jumped as I realized almost immediately it was my oldest son, Nathan -- he had driven 8 hours to spend a couple days with me for Mother's Day! And he brought me a Hibiscus tree too, just on the verge of flowering. Apparently Cody & Chris were in on this surprise, and Ruby found out just before she came over for the grill out. Usually I'm pretty quick to pick up on surprises...but I guess not this time. I was totally in the dark!
What a lovely Mother's day it was--I'll never forget the image of Nathan walking up to our front door. I made him repeat it so I could take a picture...the best surprise visit ever!

It was such a wonderful visit with my entire family being together -- and that's all this mother really needs! =)
