I'm still alive! Too busy to write much here lately, but thought I'd share some of our photos from Mother's Day. My oldest made me a lovely breakfast and had lovely gifts waiting for me; the twins made me some homemade cards with the help of their big sister. We all headed to the Connecticut shore for a day by the sea. My parents have a special pass for seniors that allows free admission into state parks, so it was a frugal adventure with sun, sand, surf and a picnic lunch.
