I learned quite a few years ago that "Mother's Day" does not mean a day off. After learning that lesson the hard way I decided that on "Mother's Day" I got to enjoy an hour to myself. That was wonderful. But now as the boys are getting older they are more eager to please and understand that it is a special day. I requested that I got to go take lots of pictures and didn't have to cook or clean anything. The day was a success. We had the most beautiful weather today! I spent the morning laying out on our deck sun bathing, knitting and listening to my audiobook "Outlander". I had two cups of coffee from my Jenny the Potter Mug before the kids woke up. Does it get any better than that??? I don't think so!!!
After a long day of relaxing and NOT WORKING. Yes I took off work today! Well I worked extra on Saturday, but for the record I had Sunday off! We headed up to Sandy Hook to explore. It was the first time my husband and kids have been there. I have been there on many field trips as a kid. I always enjoyed going there for the history and the nature. My boys loved it! It is like a never ending exploration. We live so close to New York City, but I never have a desire to go there. However, I am always in awe of the skyline of NYC. I am so glad we had so much fun there and I think maybe we might need to plan a camping trip there.
For my mom, Happy Mothers Day!!!
For my mother-in-law, Happy Mothers Day!!!
I love you so much!
