Mike and I had planned to be in New Mexico on Mother's Day, and Rob and Terry were volunteering for our nieces' school, so Mike's parents
hosted a party the Sunday after Mother's Day to celebrate when everyone could be available and relaxed.
Here's Maddie and Val playing a game on the wall:

Mike and his grandma (Rob is there but not in the picture, as he likes it):
Flowers Mike sent for Mother's Day while we were in New Mexico, "so she would be reminded of her delicate hothouse flower":
