Is there any more pie???
Story Man and I went to HEB, the local supermarket chain, Sunday morning.
We were greeted with a Wall of Pie.
Texas strawberry-berry pie.
There were Mother’s Day balloons on the ceiling, their ribbons hanging down just low enough for little children to jump up and down to try to grab
Lots of jumping and lots of Pie? Welcome to a holiday in Austin!
There were flower bouquets, of course.
And bouquets that weren’t flowers.
In the midst of the festivity, Story Man and I managed to fill the cart with practical and necessary groceries. My Italian meat sauce is in high demand with my Texas sons so I will be making a triple batch on Tuesday.
We headed up to see the Round Rock Family and spent the afternoon and evening eating and laughing and playing and talking.
We ate take-out Chinese (my daughter-in-law’s Mother’s Day wish) and Strawberry-berry pie. Of course. It was the first thing in our HEB shopping cart, after all.
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone. I hope your day was filled with flowers or chocolate or hugs or phone calls…and maybe even a decadent slice of pie.
Mothers deserve pie.
