|Happy Mother's Day Grandma!|
Dave, Grandma (Alice) and Ken
Friday morning after our usual visiting with blogging friends and a visit to the treadmill we got our day going. Ken headed out about 0830 to his first physical therapy appointment in Yerington. Nice that our little town has this available without having to head over 50 miles to Gardnerville.
He got home about 1100 after a good workout! They gave him some exercises to do here at home and instructions to order a overhead shoulder pulley that hangs over a door. After lunch we did just that. They suggested Amazon, but eBay had free shipping and same pricing so we ordered from there. Some people have Amazon Prime but we don't order enough to make that worthwhile for us. His next appointment is Tuesday.

|We are loaded this year with these beautiful "wildflowers"|
|My baking of regular cookies, muffins and banana bread|
Shared them with Grandma and Karen's mom :)
|Broccoli tots for dinner..We tried broccoli fries..don't bother|
they are made using the tough part of the stem..very stringy and
|Chicken panini on almond flour bread..|
Friday was my baking day. I decided to make some treats and share them later this weekend.
It was a beautiful day and supposed to be even better this weekend. I took my pictures above and Ken got the same idea to take a few..these don't do the "wildflowers" justice as they really are very vibrant!
|Well what is going to happen in a few weeks when these beautiful|
flowers turn into wishes? I don't have that many wishes to wish!
Hahahaha..gotta love dandelions!
Saturday was a day of getting ready to head over the hill on Sunday for Mother's Day. Ken bar b qued some great chicken and I made him some macaroni salad. We knew we didn't want to eat out while over the hill on Mother's Day. Later in the day we went over to Karen's for a short Happy Hour. We came back and sat out by the bunkhouse for a bit, but I wouldn't let him start a fire, I know what happens then!! haha.
Grandson, Seth had his senior prom so below are a few pictures :)

Sunday morning we sat the alarm for 0430 and had our coffees checking in with our friends. We were hoping to be out of here by 0700 but it was just on the other side of 0730. We had our breakfast so we were good to go. Eric called while we were driving so got my first Mother's Day call! Headed over to Ken's mom's house in Carmichael and had a good visit with her. Ken's older brother Dave showed up along with our nephew Jesse. We certainly enjoyed ourselves.

Around 1530 or so we headed out as we wanted to visit with our youngest son and family. They had gone around the corner to their friend Steve's new home so we went there. Had a nice visit with them and around 1800 we left to head for Auburn, CA and the motel we had reserved. I was bad and later realized I hadn't taken any pictures :( We will have more opportunity starting end of the month :) Nice evening at the motel just watching tv and having our dinner.
|Russell's gift for me. He said he walked all around Home Depot|
looking for a plant pot for me..yeah they were nice he said but not my
mom. He saw a pail and said "Now that's country! That's my mom!"
I thanked him for the compliment!
Bryan called and we made plans to meet at Edelweiss in old town Auburn for a brunch at 1000 today (Monday). When we lived in CA this was our regular go to spot! Adam came too so that was nice to catch up with him too. About 1100 we were ready to hit the road. We took I 80 to the USA Parkway exit in Nevada. We much prefer Highway 50 but since we were on this side of the canyon, 80 was shorter. Still a nice drive. Exactly 3 hours later we were home.
Unloaded the car and put things away and still a relaxing afternoon. About 80 degrees today.
Tuesday and Wednesday doesn't hold much in store, but Thursday we're heading for Washoe Lake State Park for a few nights. Ken has his yearly eye checkup Friday morning so we figure why not go camping!
Have a great evening everyone!
