mother's day weekend

What a gorgeous weekend we ended up having. It was a great combination of at-home relaxation and out and about fun.

Saturday we headed up to my parents for my hair appointment, and to deliver a birthday gift to my Dad, as well as to take my Mom out to buy some flowers for her garden (our Mother's Day gift to her).

Gwen was so excited to see them. What you can't see in the picture above is the constant stream of, "I go to see Nonnie and Papa? This way to Nonnie and Papa house? Yay Nonnie and Papa and Lady [their dog]. This way Mommy? I see Nonnie Papa now?" It was cute for the first 20 minutes, slightly less so for the next 55!

Today is Mother's Day, and Trav treated this girl well. I slept in until 9:15 (especially nice since her cold had Gwen sleeping fitfully for the first part of the night), then came downstairs to sweet cards (Gwen "signed" hers all on her own), a magnet that Gwen had painted for me, and a box full of cloth paper towels that Trav got me to help with my mission to cut out paper towels. Lets not forget my lilac bush... which is doing well, and looking even nicer now that I have some baby grass sprouting next to it!

Coming in slowly, but surely!

The rest of the day was pretty relaxed. We headed outside for most of the morning. The weather is definitely changing over to summer now. Since its getting so nice and warm out, we decided to break out the water table for the first time this year.

Gwen was in heaven!

Daisy found her own way to keep cool!

The rest of the day involved some laundry and other chores, tennis camp for Travis, more outdoor play, but lots of relaxing too. All-in-all, a great day!!

As for tomorrow, I'm going to be away from the computer all day doing my civic duty (jury duty!), so have a great Monday all.
