Mother's Day

This morning I was woken up at 9am on the dot by 2 excited little girls bearing gifts and a wonderful husband bearing coffee and our son. Sean said they wanted to wake me up at 8:30 but he said they would have to wait, bless him.
They had 2 stone vases for me with a tulip each from our garden and some yummy chocolate, all from our favorite coffee shop. It was funny that they bought me them because I was there the other night and was commenting to my friend how much I liked them, but I never mentioned it to them at all.

The girls also made me cards, which they love to do. They were busy this morning!!

My Dad joined us for breakfast this morning as he and Sean had the big job of putting together the swing set we all got the kids for Keira's birthday. It was so yucky and rainy this morning. But after 2 1/2 hours and horrible instructions, they got it done. I am so glad the girls have some more to do when they are out side. And who knew you could get a 3 swing, swing set! I am so glad there is enough for every one, well when Kaylum is big enough.

Kaylum was having a great time watching all the action outside through the patio door and giving Papa kisses through the glass.

This evening took us to the Boathouse to celebrate my sister's 30th. Yuummmmm crab. It was a nice evening out, all the kiddos were very well behaved. Kaylum has taken to making quite some interesting noises, some resemble the "Whhhaaattttsssuuuuuuuppppp?" commercial. And he had quite a grunting conversation with my Dad in the restaurant. Lucky for us, it was a noisy restaurant.

All dressed for dinner on the new swing set

Goofs. Kaylum was asleep.

We came home and had some yummy Turtles ice cream cake and my Mom opened her gifts and of course, our Sunday tradition, Guitar Hero.
It was a great day! I have to admit, I did do some cleaning. And a lot of removing twist ties off of Keira's new toys. I think I have that mastered.
I also tried for an afternoon nap but I guess I didn't need one, because I couldn't get to sleep.
Its such a shame to follow up a nice day like today with a Monday. But life goes on.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's in my life!!

Thank you to my family for giving me such a great day!

I just wanted to add this one. Its from last year. We spent Mother's Day in Powell River, we were there for a wedding. I was 5 months pregnant here. What a difference a year makes!!
