Mother’s Day Weekend in Boone

This year we were able to spend Mother’s Day in Boone. Leah, Kyle and Emery came up on Saturday, along with my brother, David, and his wife Shannon. So though we were missing the Dew Crew and Nick, and my brother Johnny and his wife JoAnn, we were able to be with other family members, enjoying the cool mountain air and as always, delicious food!
We arrived early on Friday and decided to take a drive on the Parkway since it was a gorgeous, clear day. We never tire of seeing mountains, waterfalls and beautiful flowers! Here is a taste of springtime in beautiful western North Carolina:

Mom and I spent the morning making a salad, along with my favorite lasagna recipe. We wanted all the work to be done so we could just enjoy the family and have a nice relaxed meal together. We had a great time catching up and everything was delicious, including the decadent Red Velvet Cake David picked up at Harris Teeter.

(Note that EZ is sitting at the table…big change from this time last year!)

Unfortunately David and Shannon had to head home after dessert, but we were so happy Leah, Kyle and Emery would be spending another day with us.
