[Making her specialty: okonomiyaki]
[Like my mother-in-law, she couldn't resist the temptation of sweeping up dust bunnies!]
[She helped me cook 10 pounds of teriyaki chicken for Maya's school's Multicultural Night.]
[What I suspect will be a tradition when my parents come to visit: sushi night!]
One of the reasons for my mom's visit was to see the cherry blossoms. Luckily, the peak bloom was late this year and coincided not only with my mom's stay, but with my sister's weekend visit. Unfortunately, my mom was feeling under the weather that Saturday and was going to forego our outing to the Tidal Basin. But, after taking some medicine, we convinced her to make the trek into DC. Yes, it was super crowded and it was pretty warm, but it was absolutely lovely to see so many cherry trees. I'm really glad I got to share this experience with my mom.
