Mommy Day for Me!

This post is a little late in developing due some some computer problems. Hopefully, all is well now.
Saturday was spent with my Mom lazing about playing cards and eating well while the kiddos splashed and laughed and screamed in the little pool outside until trembly voiced faces peered in through the screen saying, "M-m-may I h-h-h-have a to-o-o-wel-l-l, I'm fweeeeeezing." My Dad's BBQ chicken is the best! Our gift to Mom was one of those digital picture frame keychains. I figured it was the best gift for a Grandma with five grandchildren she wants to show off. Mom even got me a gift of bathtime indulgence. Now the only thing I need is a coupon for time free from child interruption while I take a bath.
Mother's Day brought me a breakfast not made by me to my favorite spot on the couch with complete control of the remote - chick flicks at my beck-and-call! Then Daddy and I spent some time going through the shed trying to find those wedding rings we bought four years ago before the wedding was post-phoned so many times. Did we find them? Not yet. Knowing our luck, they're in the garage. But we did find so many other things we'd forgotten including the card I got last Mother's Day from the kids... it still makes me laugh.
In the evening, we went to the bridge crossing ceremony for Miss M-bug, my best friend's daughter (who is Josie's best friend). This little Daisy scout is now a Brownie and still just as sweet.
Then it was time for dinner made by Daddy: Grilled shrimp over pasta! Yummy!
A great Mother's Day!
