We had a lovely lunch today for Mother's Day
Can you tell where we went?
Grandpa took us all out to Grand Hotel for a lovely lunch. Outside the dining room all the diners were greeted with glasses of champagne, and then as Grandpa went up to the desk to pay, the hostess asked, "Do you have any mothers with you today?"
"Yes. We have two;" he gestured to my mom and I.
"There is no charge for them today," said the hostess, "Happy Mother's Day from Grand Hotel." Such an unexpected surprise...
Of course the food was wonderful (as was the spending the afternoon with my parents.) And while they never have pecan balls on the lunch buffet, the desert table was fully stocked with all my other favorites: cheesecake, pecan pie, and gigantic super-sweet chocolate-covered strawberries. My mom says she thinks we should make this a family tradition, and I must say - I have to agree.
Does your family have any Mother's Day traditions?
