Happy Mother's Day!

Good morning, it is Monday.

Hope all you moms had a nice Mother's Day! I got to say "hi" to my mom which is always nice. Maren and Carol had a BBQ up in Bellevue at Stef's place which was fun as well. We started the day at church where Maren did the Children's Sermon. She brought up a book called "Hug Machine" which was fun.
At Stef's place we hung out at a commons area which was very cool. Two gas grills that were hardwired in with gas. Preston has his Physics AP exam this morning, so he was getting some studying in as well.
Chris and Chris's mom were there too. Here Mel is getting a photo with Stef, Chris, and the parents.
But the real excitement for Maren came right as we pulled into Bellevue. As she was getting out of the car, her keys dropped right into a storm drain. Doh! We did have plenty of helpers, but the drain was deep and gross, and the maintenance folks were off for the day.
So Maren and I spent Mother's Day navigating road construction and car crashes in Bellevue looking for a place to sell us a rake. I was able to remove the storm drain cover, and with a rake I could reach the sludge at the bottom.
Yay! Maren's keys! We got her keys back and have a new rake too. How cool is that? The keys got washed and put into a bag of rice to dry out the fob. We will see this morning if the fob will work.
After food and keys and such, Maren even got to read a funny book about underwear to Jack. Overall, a great Mother's Day.

See you tomorrow.
