We had a wonderful little vacation. It was nice to get away for just a little while and enjoy ourselves. We were back in town on Sunday to enjoy Mother's Day with our mothers. We took Tommy's mother out for brunch and came home just in time for a nap for Owen (o.k. me, too!) Then we went to my sister's house for a cook-out complete with a chocolate fountain (strawberries, pineapple, angel food cake, cheesecake, and marshmallows). All in all, a wonderful day.
Even though Mother's Day is certainly not about gifts, I have to admit that I love my new purse and wallet from my sweet boys! My mother even buys us presents even though we try to tell her it is her day. This year, my sister and I received Pasta Express Cookers. It is funny since I saw these in last Sunday's ad and thought about getting one. I hate using more dishes than necessary when cooking.
