How We Spent Mother's Day

It was a great way to celebrate Mother's Day. All the Fery clan gathered with the Tarvin clan at Tony & Jen's home. This, of course, provided ample opportunity for all the grandparents, aunts and uncles to spend some time with grandchildren Isaac, Amber and Owen.

Linda and Jen went to another Mother's Day event earlier in the afternoon. Jay and John drove up from Morgan Hill to arrive around 4:00 p.m. as scheduled.

It was sort of a "pot luck" but Jen & Tony provided (and Tony cooked) tri-tip, ribs and chicken. Jen fixed corn-on-the-cob. We had a nice salad, cheesy mashed potatoes, fresh fruit and cookies for dessert. It was a yummy meal.

Now, imagine if you can, two ten-month old kids discovering corn-on-the-cob and an almost three-year old not only with corn-on-the-cob, but also BBQ ribs. Imagine the mess!

John brought the video camera and Linda brought the still camera to "capture" the afternoon.... visiting, cooking, eating, opening presents, telling tales and most of all, watching the grandkids.

It was a beautiful, cool and breezy afternoon, and it was a great time.

The video and still images have been produced into a 24:02 minute video which can be viewed below. If you're not a member, or fan of, the Fery or Tarvin clan, you probably won't want to watch it.... but who knows and who will judge?
