HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

I hope all you mom's had a wonderful mother's day!

My nephew, Rogelio, came over with his family and made dinner. He is 16 years old and is an excellent cook.

He made roast chicken; some type for white fish with a mango salsa; a fruit salad; mashed potatos and I provided the rolls and the desert.

I asked him what he was going to be when he grew up. He stated in his very serious voice: "I am going to be a lawyer". I knew that from previous conversations and thought that his decision might change since his cooking skills have become exceptional. He is extremely intelligent and is more driven than any other 16 year old I know. I said: "So, you will be a lawyer who is also an excellent cook." He said: "Yeah, sure." Typical teenage response... :)

Victor gave me, his sister and his mother very nice bouquets and I arranged them in vases and we had them displayed on the dining room table. The whole house spelled of flowers... :)

Devlyn made an appearance for a couple of hours.

All in all, my Mother's Day was good.
