Today was Mother’s Day. I slept in. I was serenaded by Sarah while Ethen did the robot and Ben danced with a flashlight. I received a backpack for our family adventures and new sweet smelling lotions and bath goodies that transport me to the tropics. We went on a hike. It was great, except for the “friends” we brought home, but I guess that is all part of nature. Ethen had a soccer game. He gave me the flowers above. He showed me a new side of himself. I got to take a long shower. Jamie and I went on a date, dinner and a movie. Today was the best Mother’s Day. It had everything that I would want in a perfect day. Thank you to my husband and my kids for making my Mother’s Day 2011 one to beat!
