Happy Mother's Day!

What a difference a year makes! This time last year I was pregnant with the boys. That seems like eons ago!

We started the day off by going to church. It was a great sermon geared for moms. The message was to stay focused on the end goal, and not to get so overwhelmed by the day-to-day chores. After church, we went to Old Chicago (my favorite!) for lunch. The kids were NOT on their best behavior, and lunch ended with us throwing our meals in to-go boxes and heading home.

After the kids took naps, we loaded up the bike trailers and headed to the park to feed the ducks. The boys were NOT interested--they screamed whenever the bikes weren't moving. Their shrieking chased off most of the ducks!

Sophie didn't get the concept of feeding the bread to the ducks...she ATE the bread and CHASED the ducks. This big white goose kept following her around hissing at her--I'm sure it was wondering why she wasn't feeding it. I was afraid it was going to peck a piece of bread right out of her mouth!

We had a Papa Murphy's pizza for dinner, and root beer floats (my new favorite snack!) for dessert.
Here are some pictures of the beautiful roses and gardening book my friend Becky gave me for Mother's Day. The book is for the kids and I to do fun gardening projects--it has the coolest ideas! Here's a copy of one of the pages that made me know this project won't be showing up in this arachnophobe's garden. :-)
