The Mother's Day celebration continued the next night at grandson, Carter's baseball game with a Birthday Celebration for son-in-law Jeff afterwards at Valpo Velvet ice cream parlor. I was given my gift that evening because we would not be together on Mother's Day. Steph knows me like a book and knew I really wanted to go see the movie "Joyful Noise", so she gave me the DVD. I love receiving movies as gifts. She is so good for that!
Saturday morning the celebration continued with Breakfast at our favorite hometown place, Tate's place. My mom, hubby, Steph and I enjoyed a nice morning eating, before us 3 gals went to a nice spa to enjoy pedicures and manicures. It was so special having both my mom and daughter sitting side by side enjoying such a fun time together. I want to make it a yearly tradition...breakfast and ta taing...
Sunday, Mother's Day, I woke up to 2 beautiful cards from my 3 dogs. Mike always has a way of being so thoughtful and since the dogs are our babies, he wanted me to know how much they appreciate the love and care I give them.
I picked my mom up for church. It was a great program which included a special service dedicated to us moms. I got to see so many old friends. After church, I decided to grill out at my moms, since we knew all the restaurants in town would be so crowded. I had a taste for a good ole' burger. I know with it being Mother's Day, the last thing I should have done is cook or work, but it's my nature to do it anyway. It was a very simple lunch and with the help of my hubby, we pulled it together. It was only the 3 of us. Steph was out of town for the day (yay for her) and my son and his family were eating at his in-laws. After a nice lunch, we just rested and enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of the afternoon. My brother, Randy called from Boise Idaho to wish my mom Happy Mother's Day and I got to talk to him and catch up on his life.
We headed home in the early evening and as we pulled in our drive, my son drove up with his family. They brought me a beautiful hanging basket of flowers. It was my very first flower of the season, so I very happy. They stayed and we had a great visit, watching the grand kids play.
It was a GREAT Mother's Day, since it really started on that Thursday eve. I am truly blessed with a family who loves me.
