Mother's Day

We celebrated Mother's Day last weekend pretty low key which was totally fine with me.  The morning started off with a fabulous breakfast in bed prepared by chefs Hailey and Daddy.  Evan and Hailey gave me gifts and cards they made in school.  Since Spencer is a big middle school kid now, they don't make gifts for their mommas! Sad face.  
Since it was a nice day, we went to the store and picked out some annuals so I could fill the flower pots.  Daddy and Hailey worked a little bit on the garden and then later in the afternoon we went over to my mom's house with a bucket o' chicken.  

I wanted to get a photo of both me and my mom with the kids, but our photographer (Trent) had to run back to the chicken shack because they shorted us our box of chicken strips.   When did my babies get so big?  Spencer is almost as tall as I am!

After dinner the kids took a quick dip in the hot tub.  I can't believe that they still like to play with that ancient Little People boat and the Jaws shark - but they love it and always have.

After they got out of the hot tub, Hailey spotted Chippy running around in the back yard.  They quickly grabbed some seeds to try to entice the little guy up near them.

That is one fearless little chipmunk.

On the way home we made a detour so we could take a spin down by the lake.  We saw a big ship making its way into the channel and drove down there for a better view.  It was packed full of people along the wall - I guess we weren't the only ones with that idea.

All in all, it was a great day.
