mother’s day

15 May 2012

Tables and chairs brought from all over the house to make a long setting for all 16 of us. As I looked around at my husband, my cute mum, grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, step family and 3 dogs, I was filled with happiness. The day flowed and the sun was shining through the ample greenery. All took a turn in the kitchen for food preparation and cleaning. Giggles and funny faces were captured in the garden as we mingled for group photos. I wish we were all together like this more often. The family awesomeness continued after lunch to a relaxing dinner with Thai take-away at our place with my husband’s family where we enjoyed the presence of my sister-in-law who is visiting.

Love you mum. Lots.

    you have captured so much joy and celebration in these photos of your family gathering, with dogs and lovely hands and feet and wine and dessert – and the simplicity of that first photo takes my breathe away!

    Sounds like a wonderful Mother’s Day! Isn’t it great when you have the whole family together at once?! When my family is able to accomplish this (not very often mind you) I think to myself how wonderful it would be if we all just lived in the same town! So sad that jobs and marriages take us to different parts of the world. Looks like a beautiful day. Love the simple blue table setting, and that pear dessert looks delicious! Oh, and of course I always love to see the pups!

    That looks like a wonderful family gathering and a great way to spend Mothers Day. I love the pictures of the dogs.
    We in England celebrated Mothers Day in March as we always hold it on Mothering Sunday which is the 4th Sunday of Lent. It looks like the majority of the rest of the world celebrates it in May.

    That sounds like the perfect family gathering, lots of laughs, photos, good food (I’m eyeing off those pears!) and conversation. Glad you had such a great day:)
