Happy Mother’s Day to Me + You!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s, Grama’s and Great-Grama’s out there!

We ‘did’ Mother’s Day on Saturday this year and had a good time.

It was a sunny day! I picked up Nana and met my Mom/Dad at a Farmer’s Market in North Vancouver for a walk-about. Tt joined in the fun and had a good time running about with his Grampa. He’d made me a lovely bracelet out of metallic pipe cleaners that I wore all day.

We left there and met Hubby, the girls and Boo at a Milestone’s in West Van for a brunch.
They brought me a lovely card and all the Moms some flowers!

And of course there was shopping nearby, so we walked about and shopped!

But I only bought something for B, then later something for A… I told them they owe me next year ;-).

We went on home and played in the backyard, gardened, the girls did a bit of homework, had a friend over, then our neighbours stopped by with their granddaughter and we ended up BBQ’g and roasting ‘schmallows – YUM!

My younger daughter A had made me this WONDERFUL cake from a Williams-Sonoma mix we’d bought while shopping together on South Granville the night before! It was YUM!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
It’s another sunny day and we’re off to Mother’s Day service (via Starbucks non-fat easy-iced latte), Japanese food for lunch and shops in Kerrisdale. I saw a lovely bracelet the other day while shopping with B that I think I NEED as my gift for raising 4 wonderful kids :-).

Enjoy your day!

  1. What a lovely day with your equally lovely family.

    And, well, I notice there is some cake left over there. I could use a piece of that delicious looking cake here.

  2. What sweet pictures. You really don’t look old enough to have teenage children!

  3. Mindee : Not sure how cake travels in the mail! OH, but if you hit Williams-Sonoma to look for a box of vanilla cake mix (!), they have a FANTASTIC new Oreo cookie (brownie) cake pan that we can not WAIT TO GET!! I’m thinking Father’s Day for that one…

  4. Tabitha : OOoohh, thanks! You’re now my most favoritist blogger! ;-).
