My mother’s day

I had a great day yesterday!!!!!! Up to now, we haven’t really had any Mother’s Day traditions, but we certainly started some yesterday. So I’m a little slow on the uptake…….I LOVED yesterday, therefore, new traditions!!!

I got to “sleep in”….Darcy, you may want to look away….this is considered “sleeping in at my house!…….until 7:15 (no, not PM!). Then we all rolled out of bed and started gathering the troops. We headed out the door at 9:15 to go out to Coronado for brunch with the two families we spend most of our social time with. For those of you who haven’t had the joy of being in San Diego in May or June, it is not what you think it should be. They actually have names for the months of May and June…..May Gray and June Gloom. That means what you think it does….we’re socked in with fog and high clouds and gloomy days for two months. Going out to Coronado, you’d think we’d be loving the sunshine and warm air….NOT in May!! It wasn’t cold, but it wasn’t warm, and no sun. But I digress……The kids were VERY excited to cross over the big bridge, and Coronado is beautiful. Brunch was amazing, and the kids were very well behaved. The moms were all given roses, and treated like queens. LOVED IT!

After brunch, we headed to the beach. It had warmed up a little bit, but still no sunshine. The babies had a great time playing in the sand and the water, and were COVERED in sand…Ryley actually looked like he had on sand knee-highs at one point. After a couple hours of reading, conversation, and laughing at the kids having a great time, it was time to head home. My truck is now full of sand, but it was worth it. I got lots of pictures, and yes, started the new tradition of having my picture taken WITH the kiddos. Everyone (except Michael – he was driving, heeheehee) fell asleep on the way home.

Michael had taken the boys on Saturday to the mall to get a gift for me. I finally got the jewelry armoire I’ve been asking for for two years now……Now, I just need to get the jewelry to fill it up! LOL! Just kidding!! And this was the first year that Ryley was able to write his own name in the card…I’ll really treasure that one!!

Hope you all had a BEAUTIFUl Mother’s Day. And I share a sentiment Jennifer toasted with yesterday……Here’s to good friends, who help make me a better mother!!!

  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I so understand the sleeping in until 7 thing. It is like that at my house too. William usually does not sleep past 7 and doesn’t let me either. We all need good friends to talk to and who listen to us. God Bless,

  4. oh… it’s me again… I just had to add this. It’s funny how sleeping in is all relative. You know you’re a mother when: Sleeping in is… 7:00am!! Hugs!

  5. I’m glad you had a great day… although not the weather I was expecting you’d say… having Ryley sign his name on your card is something more priceless than anything else.

  6. HI Donna, What an absolute gorgeous day it sounds like you had even in Gray May! I can’t wait to see some pics. You surely deserved a beautiful brunch and the beach afterwards sounds like so much fun. Such nice traditions to start and continue throughout the years! Big Hugs, Donna

  7. I’ve been to San Diego in the summer and I’ll have to agree… the weather is not as most would think…. I spent afternoons at the beach and did some jet skiing but before that I was in sweatshirts and shorts…. I did still wind up with a great tan though. July is so nice…. I love San Diego…. such a beautiful place… I’m glad your Mother’s Day was a good one. Sounds like the kids and Michael did good in gifting and treating you to a nice day…. Hugs

  9. Donna, What a great day for you!! I too was going to the beach after lunch with Taylor…but the rain had other plans. I love when new traditions are made, and with good friends….sounds like a great way to spend your day!! Ryley signed his own name…how priceless is that?! Hugs to you, one of the greatest moms I know!!
    Love ya’
