Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day.  And to HRH the Queen, Happy Birthday!

Its mother's day here in the Land of Smiles. Just like in other places in the world, sons and daughters have traveled from all over the country to be with their mothers on this special day. Last night, relatives from Bangkok arrived including B's sister.  We had a big barbecue feast of giant prawns, steak, and Thai noodles.  B's aunt brought the prawns up from Khlong Toei market and they were pretty big for this time of year.  We had a great cookout (B's Uncle can be seen doing the Barbie below) last night and partied late.  Thais like to eat and party at night because its the only time when its cool enough to be outside. 

This morning, the mother's were honored by the kids who gave flowers and bowed to thank them.  It was a sweet time and I was able to capture some precious moments that I will keep in larger photos. Fortunately, I had my good camera with me on this occasion instead of just my phone.  You can immediately see the difference in quality and composition.

On this special day for moms, a special thanks from all the dads in Thailand for making our kids lives (and our lives) so great.  

Ella was a bit teary eyed because she didn't want to give the flower away to mom
