The four generations of women with the middle name Louise met for lunch May 1996 to celebrate Mother's Day and Daughter Heather's birthday. Granddaughter Kimmy was a baby, so it was Heather's first Mother's Day as a mother.
We didn't know we were starting a family tradition, but after a few years we formalized it with the name "Louise Lunch".
Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, especially Mom, Heather, and Anne. Love you!
We were having such a good time talking and laughing together that I almost forgot to haul out the camera for pictures.
This is Margarete Louise (aka Louise One, Mom) and Marguerite Louise (aka Louise Two, Me). Picture taken by Kimberly Louise (aka Louise Four, Granddaughter Kimmy).
Heather Louise (aka Louise Three, Daughter Heather) is always smiling and laughing except when she's trying to look normal in a picture.
It seems strange to see her looking so solemn. She always gets to pick the restaurant because it's her birthday as well as being Mother's Day. This year she picked Texas Roadhouse in Kalamazoo and we all enjoyed her selection.
Heather Louise (aka Louise Three, Daughter Heather) and her daughter, Kimberly Louise (aka Louise Four, Granddaughter Kimmy).
My Mother's Day gift was a book of poems containing a poem written by Kimmy. I'll be sharing the poem in a future post.
