How was everyone’s Mother’s day? I hope it went well for you all! I am going to assume here that most of the people who read my blog are women who are Mom’s. It just seem’s like my peep’s. We had a packed and busy weekend of fun at Our home. We got a little DIYing in. But really the most DIY we did was celebrate my most favorite DIY job. Those are my trio of Littles. They are my first do-it-yourself job ever. I grew them all on my own. So this weekend was pretty much enjoying my kid’s, our little family of 5 and our extended family.
We started the weekend off by going to a baseball game with Dale’s work. All of his co workers and their families were there. It was a lot of fun. We tailgated, played games, ate good food, and enjoyed the afternoon. Once the game started our kids were so into the game. The Milwaukee Brewers are our baseball team here and they got a homerun right away. The kid’s lost their mind with excitement.
Then, Nora became over it very quickly. She is not the biggest sports fan to begin with, and she quickly lost interest. She read a book and then took a little snooze. Caleb and Gavin were cheering, dancing, booing the other team. Gavin had his hat out ready to catch the ball. It was such a fun time. The game ended about 10:30 pm and the kids were hyped up. Let me tell you, they were dancing down the aisles.
We did some major gardening on Saturday. We have a center flower bed that did have flowers in it. Sometime during the winter it was overtaken by grass seed or something. Because out of no where this flower bed look’s like it has not been up kept in decades. It is rough, really rough. Like probably going to have HOA people on our tails soon if we don’t do something about it. So we did some damage to this.
I also improved upon a side planter where there is a ton of rocks. Making it look a little more thought out and planned versus a bunch of rocks that were stuck there, and un-movable. There is still a few rocks that need to be added to this. The middle planter, that is a big time job. A job that needs multiple breaks to protect our mind from insanity and out hands from scraping all the skin off.
We also went to see our niece and my two younger cousin’s ice skate. They are all three involved competitively in ice skating and had a awesome show. Nora was a lot more into this than she was in the baseball game. The boy’s were into the Zamboni and the speed skaters that came out for a minute. Oh, also the popcorn. Was the highlight for all three kid’s day. Food, the basis of all of their fun.
Mothers Day dawned with my kids jumping on the bed to wake me up at a glorious 9:15 am. Did I mention that Dale absolutely nailed it this day for me? He was amazing all day with gifts, flower’s, thoughtful moments, and down time. I mean he knocked this one out of the park. I need to bring my A game to top this for Fathers day. Maybe more than a tie this year?
After receiving my thoughtful gifts, handmade cards, and a new sundress and flip flops (again, nailed it) we had my husbands family over for a lunch. It was fun to celebrate with other Mom’s and have the day be about family. Once everyone left I wanted to get back to doing the flower beds. I know, crazy, I wanted to do more work. But, I adore gardening and getting my yard beautified. Also, home owner association’s are no joke. I mean, rumor is they can send you a very stern note in the mail. I can’t handle that kind of confrontation.
That is it for our weekend. I wish I got more of our projects done, but it just did not happen this weekend. This coming weekend we are having a neighborhood rummage sale, so it is game time for us to get it all organized and ready to go. Did I mention that our garage is currently so full or wood, power tools and in the process projects that there is zero cars in it. Yes, we are technically needing to have our garage cleared out in case it rains during the rummage sale. Yeah, totally going to happen.
Oh I forgot to mention that Nora answered a questionnaire about me at school and one of the questions was “how old is my Mommy?” her answer…. wait for it… 23!!! Yeah, I am kind of a spring chicken. I was excited she thought I was that young. Then she said “well, all you did was get married and have babies. Of course you are young.” Well then, it is not my youthful glow that made her assume my age. It is my non existent life experience and doing nothing but making babies. Way to knock a woman down.
How was your Mother’s day? Did your kids nail it? What about your significant other, do they role out the VIP status? If not, shame on them!
