You know there are some days that are celebrated and it seems almost made up by the Hallmark company – but I’m saying that Mother’s Day is an awesome day!
So how did we celebrate Mother’s Day? Well William and Jude were able to stop by and the plan was to head out for dinner to celebrate the day with my family and Mom. I knew that the day was going to be a perfect weather day, and I also knew the time that Daryl was going to spend it with us was also going to be limited. So William, Daryl, and I met up with the others and man oh man we were glad to have had reservations! There was a pretty big line and even though you feel a little weird about walking in front of others, it also felt pretty good
With 17 of us at the table for the brunch, I bet they were sure glad that we didn’t have all the grandchildren with us today. After the meal Daryl was itching to get out and finish our crops, so we beat it home and dropped him off and then I headed back to Mom’s to help work on her flower gardens. See Mom has probably the best flower beds around (OK, I’m pretty biased) but these flower beds are also a lot of work. The past couple of years we all head over there and bring flowers and more flowers and get her yard ready for the summer.
Next was to head home and Skype with Kyle & Kelcie and with William and Jude home for the call, it was the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Now I know when my Mom would always say she didn’t need anything, just come over for a potluck or something. It’s a good feeling.
And did the boys give me a gift? Absolutely! I got a box of Scratch CupCakes that I’m trying not to eat all at once along with an awesome speaker for my kayak. It looks small but it sure has a kick to it. It’s a bluetooth waterproof speaker and now I’m just going to make sure that I get out there and use it. OK, potlucks are good – but I’m really digging my gifts!
Happy Mother’s Day to you all!
