mmmmmmMother's Day!!

 Happy Mother's day to all of the wonderful Moms in our lives... you are SPECTACULAR!
Our sunshiney weekend has been pretty fun.  We started with Mom's favorite plant sale in Woodstock to try to get some more beauties for under our tree out front, things from there, just seem to do better!  Mom took off for an afternoon at Crafty wonderland while we played at home with Dad, and walked too Ottos for hotdogs... yum!  When we all got back together, we headed to Uwajamaya for fixins for a sushi dinner for Mother's day and Oooooo what an extra special treat...

cream puffs at the new Beard Papa's that opened up.
 So tasty, Mom's favorite was the hazelnut filling... so good.
 Mom was nearly giddy with the prospect of cream puffs... Grace and I soon figured out why....
 We spent as much time as possible outside, flying new planes, messing around in the garden.

Today we woke up and headed up to Mt. Tabor for the Run Mama Run fun run with Val, Joaquin, Esme, Ray and Mrs. Furth.  It was great!

Grace, Esme, Joaquin, Kai and I did the shorter kid's fun run this time
 and let the Mamas tackle the volcano on their own (Val (10K!!) and Mom (5K).).

 (That's me cheering Mom on as she ran by!).  They did a great job in spite of the hot sunshine in spots,

 and we had a blast with the playground and all of the kids activities and the Dads and Grandma.

 Mom got a well deserved back-rub afterwards

and we headed back down the hill to Joaquin and Esme's house for a wonderful brunch.
 There were perfect scrambled eggs with morels, smoked salmon and asparagus (amazing!) and Mom brought some raspberry scones that were pretty delish too.

 A great morning spent with our dear friends, some exercise, yummy food and lots of play-time!
 This evening Dad started working on staining the deck,

we played outside until it was so hot we had to come in!

Dad rolled sushi for a special Mother's day dinner for us.  
Happy Mother's day all!

 Love you to the moon and back!
