4 mothers day brunch.


Adam and I had our families over yesterday for Mother's Day brunch.  These photos were taken about 2 seconds before everyone swarmed the table, so they are not the most beautiful pictures but it's the best I could do.  There is no time for food styling when my nephew is hungry and asking when we're going to eat every 30 seconds.  I'm sure you can all relate to that, right?

I think I used almost four dozen eggs and three loaves of bread, which is kind of excessive but there were a lot of mouths to feed.  I made four different egg bakes, french toast bake, crepes, bagels and spinach dip, sausage, breakfast potatoes, and a huge bowl of fruit.  We had a chocolate pudding/whip cream concoction and strawberry shortcake for dessert.  It's safe to say we probably all gained five pounds yesterday, but everyone seemed to enjoy the gluttony.

We took a few pictures with our moms after brunch; here we are with Adam's parents.
And with my mom and sister.  This is what happens when you forget to set the camera to "auto" before handing it off for someone else to take a photo.
I'm sad to say this is the only picture of us with my mom from the day!  I definitely won't forget to set it to Auto next time.

Minus the failed family photo, the day was wonderful!  Beautiful weather, good food and a great way to celebrate all the moms in our lives.  Hope you all had a nice Mother's Day as well!
