This morning my husband woke up, told me to go back to bed and not come downstairs. (yay!) I drifted off again and woke up around 8. I didn't hear much but I did start to smell pancakes. (yay!) I grabbed a new library book and started reading. (seriously, a luxurious morning). Not long after that, my little guy came upstairs, said, "Hi Mom, " dropped this on the bed and headed back downstairs. It made me laugh.
I went back to reading and shortly thereafter, the pancake smell got stronger. A wonderful thing happened when my whole family appeared carrying this fabulous gift.
Breakfast in bed! How fun! The kids stayed with me for awhile and I shared my fruit and a few bites of the pancakes. Eventually, they headed downstairs to eat their own breakfast and came back upstairs again with all kind of wonderful goodies.
Am I lucky or what?!
Once all the morning hoopla was over, the kids and Kevin headed to see his mom and I got a few extra hours to myself. I read some more, edited and posted photos and got ready to see Salt Creek Ballet's spring performance of Sleeping Beauty (Aurora's wedding) and other repertoire. My mom joined us for the show. What a fantastic performance! The dancers did an amazing job.
The day wrapped up with dinner at Maggiano's with my mom. We stuffed ourselves silly and then did a quick little photo session before we hopped into our cars to head home. All in all I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!
Me and my fabulous mom!!!!
Wishing all the other moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day! You deserve every single minute of it.
