This year I had the most wonderful Mother’s Day! The weekend started out by celebrating with Grace at the Pre-K class Mother’s Day Pancake breakfast. The moms were treated to a delicious breakfast and given handmade placemats and coupon books. We also listened to a story together and the kids sang God Bless America.
I got the funniest little book from Grace, called “All About My Mom.” I just had to show these pages because even though it was Mother’s Day, it’s clear that Daddy is a favorite in our house!
“My mom is great because she kisses Dad!”
“I love my mom because she married my dad.”
So you’re welcome Grace, for marrying and kissing your dad!
Every year for Mother’s Day, I always ask for some kind of plant or flowers for our house. This year I got three beautiful planters full of kitchen herbs! Basil, oregano, mint, rosemary and parsley…yum.
This year I really wanted to do something a little different, rather than the typical brunch. We decided to take a short drive with my parents to Massachusetts to the Hancock Shaker Village, to see the baby animals exhibit. (Halfway into our road trip, I realized something terrible…I had forgotten the camera. And yes, I cried. My mom saved the day by taking these pics with her phone.)
The village was so neat…all original Shaker buildings set on a beautiful farm.
The kids got to experience so many animals…baby chicks, turkeys, ducks, lambs, pigs, cows…and they were all just running free around the farm!
It was such a cool experience!
Seamus absolutely fell in love with the baby chicks. He wanted to take one home so badly!
There is also a fun discovery center, where the kids could practice milking a pretend cow, watch bees in a hive, and dress up in Shaker clothes.
We also got to watch a blacksmith making a wrought-iron wall hook, eat delicious ice cream at the on-site creamery, and take a ride on a pony!
It was the perfect day! We can’t wait to go back next year and hopefully create a new Mother’s Day tradition!
