Brad let me sleep late both Saturday and Sunday while he and Nora perused Target, picked up breakfast, and just spent some quality Daddy-daughter time together. Saturday evening, we had dinner at Bo and Lea's with Bo's family, as well as Sam, Patsy, Elisabeth, Patrick, and Rachel.
This morning, Brad took this cute picture of Nora hanging out in the livingroom before they left to run errands. She was trying to "fill my shoes" with her itty bitty feet.
I woke up just before 9:00, which is sleeping in to me these days. Nora and Brad were just getting home, and Nora wanted to crawl up in my lap to eat graham crackers and watch TV. Not a bad view on Mother's Day morning. I love those sweet little curls.
So, off we went to the Northwest/Victor Ashe Greenway where Brad and I strolled while Nora ran along the path and trampled through the grass.

Nora and Brad each gave me a Mother's Day card, and Nora brought home a Mother's Day poem from day care, too. For a present, Brad and I splurged on a combined Mother's Day/Father's Day gift by having last year's 365 blog turned into a hard cover book. I should have it in the mail this week. I can't wait!
Overall, I'd have to say it was a pretty perfect day. Nora was on her best behavior, and I was well cared for.
As for my own mother, I wish I could say that I got to see her today, but of course I didn't. Even if we had been home in Nova Scotia, it wouldn't have been much of a day to celebrate because she is sick as a dog in bed with what is probably the flu. We did send her some flowers from all her girls (all 6 of us!) I hope even though she is not well, she felt loved today on Mother's Day.
