I remember when I was a kid, asking my mom "How come there's a Mother's Day and a Father's Day, but no Kid's Day?" To which she replied: "Every day is Kid's Day" Oh how right she was! My children have never asked me that, which only proves that they are better people than I. As if I didn't already realize that. Anyhoo, Mother's
Day Weekend was awesome.
On Friday, I went to Mother's Day tea with Eamon's preschool class:
My sister, Holly was also there because her son, Tommy, is in the same class:
There was dancing and singing (the kids) and crying (the moms) as we watched how big our babies have gotten. Next year is Kindergarten already! If you are interested (Nana?) you can watch the show here.
And of course, there was tea. And of course, Eamon had to make me my cup of tea. And to do that he took the tea bag out of the wrapper, then opened the tea bag and poured the tea leaves into my cup. Of course. Let's just say the tea was a bit more fiberful than usual ;)
On Saturday I got a beautiful rose plant delivered that
I ordered online my kids gave me:
And two hanging fuchsia plants from my handsome hubs:
Now our porch looks loverly!
Sunday morning, I awoke to find:
Then we went for a mile walk/bike/stroll to the park:
We got home, showered, picked up my parents, and headed to Cape Cod:
Me and my apple walnut french toast. Oh, and 2/5 of my offspring:
My childhood home (built by my Dad):
We got ice cream, and then enjoyed a peaceful yet somewhat trafficy ride home. I guess everyone wanted to visit the Cape on this beautiful day!
We dropped my parents off at their house (also built by my Dad) and went home to lay around and read and relax. It was such a nice day!
I just want to take a moment to say Happy 46th Anniversary to my Mum and Dad today!
You two have been a wonderful witness of a happy, faithful Catholic marriage to your six children and twenty grandchildren and I thank you!
