MAY 2018

I enjoy our family tradition because everyone has a chance to honor their moms. I feel very fortunate that our families get along so well. People tend to joke that they don’t get along with their in-laws, but I can honestly say that we all enjoy one another’s company. It’s an aspect of our family dynamic that I love. Although our family gathering is large, we give every mom a small gift to take home. Laura and I buy all the moms a potted flower to give their gardens a head start. We used to give bouquets, but potted flowers last a lot longer, and the gifts are more sentimental that way. After brunch, we all go home and celebrate with our immediate families. I try to plan something different for Laura each year. However, she will be out of town for a school trip this time A FAMILY TRADITION Our Annual Mother’s Day Brunch

This year, we celebrate Mother’s Day on May 13. This holiday is big for the entire family because we all look forward to getting together to celebrate our moms.

Normally, the family reserves a huge table at a local golf course for Mother’s Day brunch. My wife and kids attend, as well as all the moms on Laura’s side of the family and most of the moms on my side. The only family members who don’t attend brunch are my sister and my aunt, since they live out of state. It’s funny and also kind of embarrassing that the staff at the golf course knows our family pretty well by now. After all, we take up half the restaurant!

around, so we’ll have to celebrate another day. The girls will most likely make something for Laura at school, and I’ve been busy brainstorming what I want to get her. Laura reads the newsletter, so I can’t tell you my ideas yet, but I promise she’s going to love it.

“Mother’s Day brunch has been a family tradition for as long as I’ve been a part of the family.”

Mom, thank you for being an inspiration in my life and for encouraging me to always do my best. You are a fantastic mom and grandmother. Laura, thank you for all that you do for our family. Because of you, I know that our girls will blossom into wonderful people. I love you!

Mother’s Day brunch has been a family tradition for as long as I’ve been a part of the family. Laura’s side used to go to a restaurant and have family dinner, but since my family joined, we had to find something that could accommodate everyone. I still remember our first brunch when Laura’s nephew was just a baby. It’s been amazing to watch the family evolve over the years. Now there are just as many kids as adults.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day. We look forward to seeing you soon.
