Shannon’s mom has been in town all this week and then for the weekend, Gary joined us too.

I had to head in early Sunday morning to get ready for our student service. But in my absence, the boys woke up early with grandpa and made the mom and grandma breakfast. The boys had made a happy mother’s day banner and “secretly” bought all the supplies for breakfast the day before. I say “secretly” because the fridge was chocked full with enough bacon and eggs and sausage to feed 12 moms, but maybe my boys thought they’d be really hungry.

Anyway, after breakfast, the rest of the clan joined me at church and then we went home for family pictures on the lawn.

Then we loaded up the bikes and went to Mission beach to take the grandma and grandpa on their first seaside bike ride here in SD, something that has become a family favorite for us. We rented 2 more cruisers and rode to PB where we had mochas at this coffee shop that serves like 40 different varieties and tops them off with chocolate whipped cream.

Then we rode down to south mission and then went to Red Lobster for dinner- per the request of grandma who held nothing back and had some kinda seafood feast I think. Lobster, crab, shrimp, fish and probably kelp or something. So fun.

3 cheers for moms and grandmas. So wish we could have spent it with all who hold that title in our family, but we take what we can get.
