We had some home internet connectivity issues last week that resulted in a few days without blogging but luckily we are up and running again just in time for a quick re-cap of my fabulous Mother’s Day weekend.
We really had no formal plans for this weekend, other than a birthday party on Saturday afternoon. I was looking forward to relaxing at home with my family and that’s exactly what my weekend entailed.
I started my weekend with a great run in the rain on Saturday morning.
When I started out on my run there was no rain, then it started sprinkling and that turned into a very light steady rain, but nothing too bad. It was a surprisingly humid morning so the rain was actually very refreshing. I had just sat down in my car when the rain really started come down – perfect timing!
My only other plans for Saturday involved taking the girls to a birthday party for a friend at school. The party was at an indoor kids fitness center, My Gym, so the girls pretty much run around, eat cake, and act crazy for 90 minutes.
The girls had a blast and were pretty tired after the party! The remainder of my Saturday included lots of relaxing!
For Mother’s Day the girls insisted on making me breakfast in bed!
This was the first year the girls really asked to make me breakfast in bed so I was more than willing to comply! Kyle helped them out a little and I enjoyed a delicious bowl of Rice Krispy’s and strawberries. It was quite the picnic!
The majority of my day was spent with my girls. We had mini-makeovers that involved me curling their hair and putting make-up on them. They wore some of my dresses for playing dress-up. We made chocolate chip cookies and pretzels in the Easy Bake Oven. I had a fabulous weekend with my family and could not be more thankful for my amazing daughters.
No Mother’s Day would be complete without acknowledging the beautiful woman that is my mother!
She is a fabulous role model and inspiration to me! I would not be the woman I am today if it were not for her. I love her very much and wish her all the luck with her upcoming 70.3 Half-Ironman on Saturday!
Happy Mother’s Day!!
