It was a day of celebration. Our grandson Owen turned one and we were also celebrating Mother’s Day on the first opportunity we could all be together. After our traditional Mother’s Day lobster dinner, fishing with our daughter and the kids was on the agenda.
When they arrived, the kids dug for worms with Poppy in Nanny’s vegetable patch.
Both girls looked for the fattest, longest and most active worms and were happy to handle them. Caitlin referred to them as, “The juicy ones.”
Lobster for Mother’s Day is usually our first lobster of the season. This year, we also had fresh snow crab, a real treat that we will add to our menu more often this time of year. The kids, including Owen, love crab as well as lobster.
Dessert was chocolate cake and since it was his first birthday, as is our tradition, Owen fed himself the cake.
He needed a bath before we headed out to the pond for an afternoon of fishing.
This expedition on this beautiful spring day was perfect in every way. Sylvie, who didn’t catch any trout last time, caught six.
Caitlin eventually caught four as did our daughter, though all were released back to grow bigger.
Owen, Poppy and I were observers. And happy ones at that!
It was a perfect celebration.
