When I got up -- a good hour and a half later than I usually would (bliss!) --breakfast was made for me. Idea courtesy of the kids; execution courtesy of S.
|House by BB -- I had to play with the scan settings so it would show up, since the colored pencils were a little light. Love the detail of the shutters and the flowers!|
|The inside of my card from BJ: "dear mom. I love playing and snuglling and talking and resting with you."|
S also gave me a gift certificate for a massage (yay!) and helped the kids with a "surprise" for me -- getting my bike all fixed up! After more than a year in storage, the tires were flat and it needed a bit of a tuneup. Later that afternoon, BB and I went for a bike ride together on campus. Lovely.
In the evening, we went out for a family dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. Before heading out, we tried to get a picture of me and the kids, since an annual mother's day pic has become a tradition. Unfortunately, between BB's insistence on "posing" for pictures and BJ's being in the "manic cheese" stage of smiling for pictures, we didn't get a very good one of all three of us.
|BB and me, both looking sweet (one of her less obvious "poses" for pictures)|
|Got one with BJ before he said "cheese!"|
|BB had the right idea... a gentle peck on the cheek. BJ had to plan his approach.|
Actually, this is my favorite picture of the day. I love the gentle smile on BJ's face.
|BB was overwhelmed by all the choices and took a good 15 minutes to make her selection -- finally settling on PEZ!|
|Too sunny, Mom!|
