Mother’s Day Blessings ~Family Time in Okinawa ~Celebration: part three ~Enjoying a Day at Home

Mother’s Day Brunch
Cheers to Mama...she’s the best.

We three enjoyed a tasty brunch at home...
Starting with orange juice and a toast to Jack’s mama.

Jack’s orange juice was diluted with water,
Mama and Nana enjoyed a splash of bubbly in theirs.
It was a special brunch, on a special day,
with very special people.

Amy was up early to finish the Baked Oatmeal.
We had done the pre-preparation the night before.
The oatmeal includes banana, strawberries, walnuts, 
and mini chocolate chips.

She also served
Cheesy Scrambled Eggs and Fresh Fruit

After brunch we walked to a neighborhood park.

Sophie is Jack’s friend that lives in his cul-de-sac.
Her mama was called in to work, 
so she spent part of the day with us.

She is a delightful little girl, 
smart and articulate,

And she plays so nicely with Little Jack.

After lunch and quiet time,
We had some fun in the sun with 
Jack’s new Splash pad.

The cool water feels so good on a hot day.

Since Amy treated us to a lovely brunch, 
this nana prepared dinner.
It was great to spend a relaxing day at home.

One of my favorite things is to visit our adult children in their homes.
Being a part of their everyday routine, having a meal at their table, 
helping with house chores, lounging in their family room, 
all fill my heart with joy.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
We are Blessed.

Take care,
~Natalie
