mommy talk my passions

 

I love visiting my parents wherever they are but I am most excited to see how their home in the boondocks near us blossom each time we visit.  My mom said she wanted us over to have a belated birthday celebration for me-her baby so we came hungry and prepared for a really good meal.  I love how much of what we partake came from their garden like :

wild cherry tomatoes  and herbs.

In order to allow the carnivores amongst us to enjoy their food just the same, well there is enough yummy beef, poultry & seafood to add to a simple/sumptuous shabu-shabu surprise.

My Lola/Mamang may be 93 but she is one cool dudette as shown here with her love-her Donny.

There are no words to describe the view in the boondocks at sunset.  There is just awe and thanks at the fact that we can enjoy one another until the day ends.
