Keeping it real
Unexpectedly, all of my girls were home over the weekend. It's us!
And we're definitely keeping it real!
(I love the Sharon photobombs! She'd love that she's in such good company!)
They took me to see The Great Gatsby on Saturday night (Rusty came too), after which we all ended up out for dinner, and then stopping at a local tavern where my future son-in-law's band was playing. An early movie turned into a rather late night out! I liked the movie, loved the music, it was all very f-a-s-t for a 2.5-hour movie. There are parts of "the original" that I found much more powerful, such as almost everything to do with the Wilsons.
Mom's beginning to feel a bit better and was set on doing something for Mother's Day, having regretted not doing anything for Easter, and we settled on a visit to the Green Bay Botanical Garden. It was quite lovely, but ooohh so chilly!! I think we'd have managed just fine with either cold or wind; both was just too much even on such a beautiful sunny day.
There were markers for about a million hostas that I've never heard of before! They were all just starting to poke through the ground, getting ready to take over the show when the spring flowers are finished. I'm looking forward to a promised return visit later this summer.
