Happy Mother's Day

This year for Mothers day I made dinner for my Mom and family. (Why haven't I done this in the past? I am a slacker daughter.) Along with the Mexican feast, I made fruit dip, blondies, and blueberry-lemon cupcakes.

My Mom is an amazing woman. She will always drop whatever she is doing to help others out. She has spent the last month taking care of my Grandma who had to have emergency surgery on Easter.
She is the best cook I know. She just puts things together and they always taste amazing. She takes care of our family and is a great example to me.

Before we ate lunch, we were able to talk to Dan for an hour or so. It was so fun to hear his English accent and hear about his recent investigators. He is loving life and enjoys the work. We were happy to hear that he was doing so well.

This was my first time trying to make big swirly frosting. It's not beautiful by any means. But, the blueberry helped disguise all of my mistakes. I had a hard decision to make and didn't eat one. Instead I had one of my Aunt's delish homemade peanut butter bars.

We can't forget a picture of Bob and I.
