Family Photo

A Day Late and a Dollar Short

[shareaholic app=”share_buttons” id=”20872686″]

I had no overwhelming desire to write an ooshy-gushy post about my mom yesterday, because a) she knows how much I love her without it, b) I did that last year and, well, my feelings still hold true! and c) for the first time in years we’re actually in the same geographical locale to celebrate together!

My dad failed to see that that was intended to be a mother-daughter picture.

We honored the occasion the way any good Mother’s Day should be spent. Dinner at Red Bar in Grayton Beach…

He’s the actual reason all 14 of us have convened in Florida for the week, having suffered survived four long years in med school and finally hooded a real, grown-up doctor on Friday. Wouldn’t you want him behind your scalpel?

…followed by gratuitous photo shoots of all.

Sadly, it was my mom’s first Mother’s Day without her own mama, our beloved Dede.

But this little gal’s first with her mom.

Circle of life, I suppose.

    First of all, I love that expression, A day late and a dollar short. Second of all, you’re making me incredibly homesick. OH Florida! I will be back soon!

    Please tell me where you got your dress! I am going to the beach in June and I need a dress like that!

    Your family is so beautiful! Glad you all got to be together!

    Also, JEALOUS of weather where you don’t have to wear sleeves!

    In an unrelated note, I MUST have your dress. I am writhing with jealousy over how hot it is. Fab.

    What a great way to celebrate, your pictures are great and regarding your dress, I concur.

    Your family always looks so cute and put together in the photos you post. Sounds like it was a great weekend!
    I love your dress too but I have to admit, I love your sister’s dress even more! I heart red dresses!

    Your whole family looks like they have some great genes! That little baby is the cutest!

    this reminds me how long it has been since our whole family has been all in one place. I think it was the 90s.
