For Mother’s Day, most of my mom’s side of the family met up in Grand Rapids for a late lunch/early dinner at Mangiamo!

We got some garlic bread to start, along with the complementary bread basket.  Don’t let the picture fool you, I had a lot of bread while waiting for the whole family to arrive.

I, being fairly predictable, got the exact same thing I always do at Mangiamo:  herbed pappardelle.  I’m kinda boring when it comes to food, sometimes.  But, don’t mess with a good thing, yo!

It was really great to see my family again – two weekends in a row, what a blessing!  I feel so fortunate to have such a great group of people that I can call family.  I love them so dearly.

The room we were in has chalkboards all around, which kept the kids wildly entertained.  I was touched when I looked over at one point and saw that Emma had made a picture of “Ant Mindy”.

When I later found out that it started out as a picture of one of their dogs, Lucy, and somehow evolved into me…well, then I wasn’t sure I was quite as touched.  That does explain the dog like nose/mouth combo and the ears that from a distance look like hair.

I’ll still take it as a compliment.  I think.

Some unpictured eats for the day include a Bagel Thin with strawberry cream cheese for breakfast, half a bottle of a Bolthouse Farms smoothie after church, and a bowl of ice cream for an evening snack.

It’s ultimately been a pretty chill day.  Church and grocery shopping, family time, then this afternoon/evening has included some cleaning up around the house and sitting outside, enjoying the sunshine with a book and a bottle of Oberon.  A lovely Sunday, indeed.

Take the “Ant Mindy” as a compliment — I’m sure it was intended as such. I’m guessing the dog nose/mouth is because she loves you as much or more than she loves Lucy.
