Happy Mother's Day

I had a great first Mother's day yesterday thanks to my hubby and little boy and of course all the wonderful phone calls and text messages. Thank you for thinking of me! Mark let me sleep in for a little bit and took care of Caden and then we enjoyed some family lounging around time in bed. Then Mark made banana/walnut pancakes for breakfast that were unbelieveable! Thanks honey! The rest of the day was spent getting the patio ready for spring/summer cookouts and finishing up planting the garden. My husband was a gem and push-mowed the whole lawn so that we could use the grass clippings as mulch in our garden, it took almost two hours to do the whole yard! The garden is about 75% planted with just a few things left to do. We had a first for lunch also, I decided to try pizza on the grill! It turned out great and was delicious with a crunchy crust. The three of us and Nia spent lunch outside on the patio, the weather was so nice! Caden even enjoyed crawling around in the grass and playing fetch with Nia. I wish we got a video of them playing together. Nia was trying to get Caden to throw the ball for her...a few more months maybe. After all that fresh air, we met up with Dave & Clarice, Scot & Amanda, Madison, Izzy, Peyton, Eric and Michelle at La Piazza in Troy. It was such a nice dinner and end to a wonderful Mother's Day! Happy Mother's day to all you hard working mothers out there! You are amazing and deserve a wonderful day!
