I forget the rest...

Favorite snacks from farmers market. #bbqporkstick #homemadedonut

Emma came home for a mother's day visit and to go to cousin Willie's law school graduation party!
It was a beautiful weekend with fun visits and deep talks and loud laughs.

Emma and I went to the farmer's market on Saturday morning.
I bought pickled beets, eggs, sugar donuts, cookies and a bbq pork stick.
I have my favorite vendors and it's wonderful to find them up at the square year after year.
Not a lot is growing this time of year..patience is a virtue, don't cha know.

Emma likes The Grumpy Troll.   #mthoreb #wisconsin #beerhere

Emma requested we go to The Grumpy Troll in Mt. Horeb.  It's a small town a few miles away.
We had a nice meal there.

Pretty ride home from the Harvard train.

It's much quicker and less expensive to take the train back to Chicago, so I drove Emma to Harvard Illinois last night.
It was a gorgeous night.
The sun was warm and the wind was windy. (nature's air conditioning)

And I was with my precious girl.

Encourage one another,

    Just lovely, all of it!
    love and prayers, jep

  5. Being with our children is such a blessing! Glad you got to spend some time with Emma.

  6. Your Whitman quote explains perfectly how I feel every time we get to visit our kids and baby grandsons - it only matters that we are together❤️

  7. Absolutely perfect. The visit. The girls. The love.
    I hope I will be a mom like you someday. Right now, I am dismally failing.
    This morning the kids are brushing their teeth ferociously because it is time for our teeth cleanings. They make me laugh.

  8. Ohh Fun Mother's Day visit. Troy and I want to go to the Madison Farmer's market this season. We can bring Emma up if she's free!

    Sounds like a lovely time with your girls. Carrie and I just returned from bringing my girl out to DC for the summer. We had some fun times on our journey, and I know she will have an exciting summer! But, it won't be the same without her around.
