Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, and especially to Mrs. iFlipFlop. She's the mother of our teenage boys, which also means that she's outnumbered in the house...lots of Y chromosomes around. Fortunately, Snickers the Wonder Dog is the girl we never had and thinks of herself as one of the kids (minus the backtalk).
I thought this series of pictures captured the essence of Mother's Day at the iFlipFlop household. The top four are pictures taken at about 6:30 one morning when we were trying to get a family portrait. I had set the camera on self-timer and was running into the shots. Mrs.iFlipFlop was waiting patiently as she always does. The rest of us left a little bit to be desired on our "preparation." (She's on the fast track for sainthood.)
The bottom two shots didn't involve herding cats. That's Mrs. iFlipFlop, the UberMom, on a hike in the Poconos and on the Outer Banks.
