Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the beautiful and kind mother's in our lives.  
 We kicked off the weekend with our Wushu test.  It was my first belt and Owen's Brown-white belt test.
Owen did the southern Nandao form
 and I did longifist, we both did a fantastic job and were really impressive.

Owen's Jumps have gotten so much better the past few months. 

It was a great evening, and we celebrated as I asked with Otto's hotdogs on Saturday and a movie ... Guardians of the Galaxy 2!  Plus I managed to squeeze in a play date so a really full day.   
 Today is Mother's day, we started with some homemade eggs benedict with asparagus (so amazing) and some wonderful treats we made Mom at School!  I decorated a pot, and Owen made a cool nightlight and Dad got her a big pile of fancy chocolate bars!
 While Mom was at Yoga, we planted a lot of the plants she got at the woodstock and eastmoreland plant sales.  It's nice to see the yard getting a little more mature.  After lunch, we headed down to the Rhododendron Garden once the sun broke out after a rainy few days.  It was beautiful there!  A lot of ducks were out, and the Rhodys were blooming beautifully.  

 After a nice day in and at the garden, Dad made some homemade sausage (they have to dry for later)  and some awesome carnitas for dinner.  It's been a wonderful day filled with family and flowers.  Happy Mother's Day all!  I hope you have shared some of it with people who love you!
