Best Mother's Day Evah

Sure, sure, there were cute homemade presents and cards and a family bike ride. And yummy dinner at Oma and Opa's. Kohlrouladen, mmmm. Whatever, blah blah blah.

No, the real highlight was the trashpick of a minivan full of hostas. Big hostas. Fancy hostas. Free hostas. We filled the back. Filled it. Then after dinner we borrowed a tarp and filled the second row floor, beneath the kids' feet. We piled them in the backyard, and there is easily a 8x6 foot bonanza of hostas. A plethora.

Note: this photo shows much, but by no means all, of today's haul.

And now the week is pretty much planned out, I'd say.

I saw some spookily ginormous hostas in Riverside this past weekend. Leaves bigger than your head. Bigger than my gigantic melon, even!
