Mother's Day

Oh, boy, trying to get a picture of me and both my kids is such a challenge! BayLea is pretty easy, but Breccan is in his 'don't take my picture' phase and when he does get it taken there's usually a pretty funny look on his face!

For the last few years, I've had a Mother's Day brunch at my house. This year wasn't any and dad and Jason came over and we ate Breakfast enchiladas, Spinach Artichoke frittata, fruit and dip, and drank mimosas, Lime Lemonade, and Mojitos. Yummy! We also had music by Dad. I just love that.
Dad has the most amazing voice and I don't get to hear him sing enough. We used to spend a lot of time at the Moose or Eagles or VFW, where ever he was playing, but now that we have kids, it's harder to get there. But anyway, it was hot enough that sitting on the deck got pretty warm, so we used umbrellas to shade ourselves. The plan this summer is to build a top of some sort to put over the deck to cut out some of that HOT HOT sun!

This is Breccan eating dry cereal after his nap. He was one tired boy...he didn't go to sleep the night before until around 9:30 and got up at his usual 6:00 a.m. He didn't want his picture taken, but you know me...can't resist!

Most days when dad comes over he take a nap. I've decided I'm going to take a picture of him every time he does.

Towards later afternoon, we headed out to the 'site' (as mom calls it...she's afraid she'll never invite us to her house, it'll always be an invite to the site). The above picture is of Jery and mom in her bathtub! And the one below is of her shaving her legs in the shower!

Both the kids on dad's toy...the tractor. BayLea, of course, is gungho to drive the tractor. It usually takes Breccan a little while to decide to drive it. He's much more cautious than BayLea.

The mule's are at the 'site' to keep the weeds down. Dad borrowed them from a friend. BayLea loves the mules, and shows no fear of them. Breccan actually warned up a little this time and wanted to pet them. This one is HUGE! And very friendly. To see Jery up there petting too, is quite an accomplishment. He does not like horses too much!

I love this picture. I just love pictures my kids getting tossed up in the air. It just shows the trust of them with their daddy.

BayLea, just being cute!

Dad with the mule. I can't remember if this is Dolly or Rocky. I'm thinking Rocky. He usually escorts dad to the gate as we leave. I think Dad needs to buy a horse. He loves them.
We had a great Mother's Day. Jery and the kids had flowers sent to me, and I got a gift card to the Spa for a pedicure and a massage. Which reminds me, I need to go call and schedule that!! Woo Hoo!
