Happy Mother's Day 2009

Last Sunday, my mom & Connie headed back to Canada. Since I needed to bring Diana back home anyway, we left in two cars in the morning, and took off to Eugene. My mom drove with me, and Diana drove with Connie.
I wanted to take my mom to brunch at the Oregon Electric Company, but they weren't doing brunch. Diana suggested Olive Garden instead.
It was a lot of fun and we (mostly) enjoyed the meal. The pork tenderloin wasn't tender :( After we ate, we went over to Diana's place so Connie & Mami could see where she lives. Then we went over to the UofO campus to show them where she has the majority of classes. It was kind of a rainy, wet day, and a bunch of people were out wearing aluminum heat blankets. We thought that was weird until we figured out it was the Eugene Marathon :P
I think Mami & Connie thought the campus was pretty neat, and hopefully the morning gave them a good start to the two-day trek back home.
Happy Mother's Day to my mom, Renate; Lee's mom, Rita; my sisters, Connie & Carolyn; Lee's sisters, Donna, Karen, & Myrna; our sister-in-law, Nancy; and all of our friends who are moms!!!
I'll be working in the yard most of the weekend, and going to see the new Star Trek movie :)

Happy Mother's Day to you too! It was neat seeing all of Lee's family in the photos! Kaleigh thought that Craig looks a lot like Lee! Kaleigh and I are getting over head colds so I don't know how my Mother's Da will pan out. The kids already gave me their gifts they made at school, and the kids are trying to help out around the house.
