400th Post - Mother's Day

Mother's Day was excellent. After becoming a mother myself, I now know why we have a Mother's Day - being a mom is not easy by any stretch of the imagination but totally worth it when your child looks at you and says they love you out of the blue.
I was greeted in bed by the girls and Lorne with a balloon and roses from the girls and roses from Lorne and of course a card from each as well. Lorne also cooked a yummy pancake breakfast before we headed off to church.
Church was nice, the primary kids sang to their mothers and that is always nice and then we got a few chocolate treats from the kids as well.
After church, we headed to Bristow to my uncle's house for a big family BBQ - Uruguayan style. Lorne's dad was still visitng with us so naturally, he came too!It was so nice to be there with the family and with my own mother of course. Ryan even got to bring Roman for a bit and so he and Jasmine played together. They are so cute together and it is so nice to have these wonderful children in the family.We took some fun family pictures and my two cute girls wore the cutest matching dresses. It was a most wonderful time and a great relaxing Mother's Day.
