Can Mother's Day be Everyday???

I have to say that I had a fabulous Mother's Day. The hubby cooked me breakfast in the morning which conveniently threw my morning run out the window. I had the cutest card from my little guy where he wrote down all of the things that I do that make him happy. :) The hubby bought me the orchid I had my eye on at the Farmer's Market on Saturday and it is now beautifying our otherwise mundane master bathroom.

My parents picked Darren and I up at 9:30am (poor hubby had to work, as usual!) and we headed over to the family favorite Memorial Park in Pescadero. We met up with the rest of the family at our picnic site.

Despite the horrific traffic due to a motorcycle accident (ouch!) we all had the BEST time. We couldn't have ordered better weather. The kids played on a huge downed redwood that was hollow in the inside and we even got in a bit of baseball. We had mom's infamous deviled eggs, a fresh fruit salad, wine and cheese and my dad and brother barbequed steaks for the adults and hot dogs for the kids.

We went on a 2-mile hike through the campgrounds which got me all excited about my impending camping trip there over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. (I can't wait!) Something about the smell of the redwoods, the fresh ocean air and the peace and tranquility of nature just makes me a happy camper. No pun intended. ;)
