Mother's Day - St. Francis Hills

Time to catch up after many weeks of not having time for blogging.

Ken has been working on remodeling our master bedroom/bath and as usual I’m consumed at work.

So let’s go back to Mother’s Day and catch up.

As usual, we followed the Frericks family tradition of a Mother’s Day weekend at St. Francis Hills. We arrived late Saturday afternoon.

Because of various other family issues it was only niece Jackie and her family that camped overnight with us.

I believe this is Sox’s favorite outing of the year as all her little great-niece buddies make sure she gets plenty of love.

Ditka had his fair share of attention as well.

Ken was on grill duty with nephew John supervising. This is a slight change of roles for the week since Ken has had John working with him all week doing the master bedroom/bath – taking the 20-year ‘popcorn’ off the ceiling, taking out old flooring, tearing out old tile and wallpaper, and wood trim. These two guys have proven that together they can be quite destructive!

Ken’s brother’s and sisters – in the back, Lois, Ken, David, Ann, Kay, Michael; front row – Mary, Carlene, Mom and Mom’s sister Florence.

Since they were teenagers Kyle and Trev always tried little tricks to make themselves look bigger than the other in family pictures. Ok Kyle, you win this round!

Since Ditka’s incident with the worm under his skin, Ken has the dogs on some additional natural anti-parasite medicines that take a little ingenuity to administer. His great-nieces were more than happy to help him out.

Molly talked Kyle and Jenni in to a came of soccer. It was Molly and Jenni against Kyle.

Here you see little schemer Molly whispering the trick throw-in play to Jenni.

I think by the end of the day Molly and Jenni were new best buddies!

Well tomorrow we'll move on to our Frericks Brother's Weekend...

Hugs, C
