I had the best Mothers Day this year! The festivities began on Saturday, with Brian taking me out to eat at the Trellis Cafe at Thanksgiving Pointe! We sat on the terrace overlooking the gardens and enjoyed a beautiful and delicious meal. I absolutely love Thanksgiving Pointe - it's really one of my favorite places on Earth. It is even more spectacular during the Tulip Festival which happens every year for a few weeks in the spring. Anyway - Bri left plenty of time after eating to wander and enjoy the gardens and was especially patient while I took pictures to my hearts content. After a couple hours my allergies were completely out of control (they have been a lot worse this year than ever before) so we went to part two of the date: the movies! Sounds a little anti-clamactic I know, but considering we hardly ever go to the movies it was quite a treat. On Mothers Day morning I was woken up with breakfast in bed, complete with homemade cards from the kids. Chase even made me a paper airplane all by himself that he colored with hearts. What mother doesn't need one of those? Then we were off to a full day with a mission farewell for Bri's cousin Scotty, a b-day party for Todd, a phone call from Kyle (who's on a mission in Peru) and a lovely family dinner with the Eberts. Whew what a weekend! Thanks Michelle for watching the kids while we went on our date, and mostly thanks to Bri and my beautiful kids who make my life so wonderful and adventureous! I love you guys!
