A Good Time was had by All






Thought I'd post about the son's surprise visit.....a good time was had by all!!! As you might expect, the last few days were just wonderful. It was so nice to have my son at home and I was happy we could spend the time with him and his sister too. It would be impossible to show, in photos, just how wonderful the visit was...nor would you care about that anyway, so I thought I'd just post some of my favorite 'shots' of the goings on in the Eaton family this last weekend.

One thing we like to do is eat....here is son-in-law, Rick and that old navy man making tacos. This was taken in my daughter's kitchen....and these guys were ready to eat! I LOVE this photo of Scott and Kelly hamming it up....aren't they just the cutest! A photo taken at the airport of me, Scott and Richard. Kelly and Scott saying goodbye....(when they were children, I never thought we see them so affectionate toward each other....does a mother good to see it!!!)

The last photo was taken as Scott went into the airport to fly back to San Jose. It was so sweet of him to come and visit....and the visit, although wonderful, seemed to fly by. I am grateful to have had him here for those few days and even more grateful that he made it back home safely.
Yes, a good time was had by all...but most especially, ME! take care, pat
(A message to Browse, who commented on my last Post: It was so nice to hear from you - hope you and Mags are well!!)

To Scott...I'm sure as I age, I'll probably do more things you find embarrassing...but you should know that I love you no matter what and to me (and the other mothers too) you look wonderful...not perfect (because no one is), but wonderful...and, we are all so glad you are thoughtful to your mother and other folks too...which in our opinion, makes a guy really gorgeous! loveyoulots, mom

Hi, Pat! Thanks for the well-wishes; mags and I are both good! Portland OR is treating us both well. Mags is a couple of months from graduating as a Dr of Chiropractic, and I've gone back to school to chase a degree in mathematics. I hope life is going equally well for all of you in Arkansas!

Pat said...

Browse...I will never forget how kind you and Mags were to Scott when he first moved to San Jose....it was greatly appreciated then and still is. And, he remembers too. All our best to you both! pat

Great pictures, Pat! Happy family and happy times. But, have you been holding out on me?!? Don't tell me you have Photoshop and have posted those photos of me showing every one of my chins! We'll talk...

Pat said...

Sherry, NO, I don't have photoshop...Scott was just 'joking' he says. If I did have it...I still wouldn't know what to do with it!
Funny girl! pat
