Mother's Day

This year’s Mother’s Day was truly the best day ever. We kept it simple – no gifts, no fancy dinner – just breakfast out at my favorite restaurant, a nap, a bike ride to the botanical garden (free admission to moms on Mother’s Day means we’ve gone every year since I became pregnant with C. We’re not ones to pass up a good deal ;), concluded with home made pizza by request.

This year I received my first Mother’s Day card from C (made with a little help from papa) which proudly showed off her crayon coloring skills and completely melted my heart. It now rests on the fridge where I can see it every time I walk by.

Amidst a busy month of moving, starting daycare, a couple of out of town trips, and preparing our current house as a rental, yesterday provided a much appreciated respite from the chaos. The gorgeous weather, the bike ride, and the delicious food was just icing on the cake. I hope we can continue our tradition of bike rides to the botanical garden for many more Mother’s Days to come.

{I didn’t post any pictures from last year’s Mother’s Day outing but here are some from two years ago when I was pregnant with C. Looks like we did pretty much the same thing as this year just in reverse order: Reiman Gardens and The Cafe for a meal out. We’re nothing if not predictable (ahem, … boring?).}

    Not boring! You just know a good thing:)

    I held court here at the house and did house chores while Don and Dexter toiled on the landscape. It was punctuated with my dad coming over with lunch, and then hosting my in-laws in the evening. Plus 4 loads of laundry. Glamourous, no?

    With her shirt hanging off her shoulder like that, and T’s new haircut, our kids look like they’re ready for freshmen orientation ;)
