Once everyone was dressed, packed, and loaded, we set off. Livy napped the whole way & Ella was playing princesses in the backseat. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed listening to her. From what I could gather, she was having a tea party with Belle and Jasmine. It was adorable.
We met my parents at Wegmans so that Ella & I could hop out and help them with the grocery shopping while Eric took Olivia & Charlie onto the country. I'm not sure how helpful you could consider my dad & Ella though because every time mom & I turned around they were doing "tricks" in the truck cart.
We arrived at the country house & I found this peanut waiting for me on the counter with a present! She got me a cookie pop for Mother's Day!
We spent the afternoon helping in the yard & enjoying a little sunshine. It was cooler than expected - which seems to the be the theme of our spring here in NY - but the fresh air was still nice. We ended the day with a family BBQ - which involved me eating way too much canoli dip & BBQ chicken.
|Ella & Aunt Britt were matching, so they needed a pic together :)|
Seriously though, I had a wonderful low key Mother's Day with my family. My girls made me a cute craft at daycare, Eric let me order a new pair of shoes, and I ate more sweets than I'll ever admit to. It was a great weekend & I wouldn't trade it for a fancy shindig any day.
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day too! Enjoy your week!
