Mothers Day Weekend was a busy one! It started out Friday evening when my son and wife came home not feeling well. We originally planned to head down to San Diego right after school but we decided to exercise prudence and go to urgent care while we still in town.
By the time we got out of urgent care and picked up the meds we were all too tired to make the two hour drive. While my family rested, I found myself restless. I decided it was a good time to try out a cookie recipe that Jennah shared with me. I figured cookies would make a nice present for my Mom this weekend. They were delicious!
We finally hit the road for San Diego the next morning. Thankfully, traffic was not an issue. We made one pit stop at about the halfway point in Carlsbad.
The reason for our visit to San Diego was two-fold: Mothers Day and my Mom’s birthday. The festivities for my Mom weren’t going to be happening until later in the afternoon so my wife and I went out on quick date to get some gelato.
On the way back from our date, my car started to show signs of trouble! Gah! Perfect timing, right?!!!
It was too late in the evening to take it to a shop and I wasn’t going to try to drive my car back home tonight with all of those indicator lights on! Thankfully, my dad was going to be out of town on business and he suggested we borrow his car for the week and that he’d take it into a shop for me when he got back home later in the week. Wow… I’m lucky to have such accommodating parents.
With the problem solved, it was back to celebrating my Mom. Here’s a picture of her with her grandkids… She doesn’t look a 60-year-old grandma, does she?
After all of the festivities wound down, we headed back home. We had to be at church the next day and I wanted to make sure my wife got to enjoy her Mothers Day.
The kids and I woke up early Sunday morning to make breakfast. The 9-year-old was in charge of the waffles and fruit. The 12-year-old was in charge of eggs.
Mommy had breakfast in bed and was showered with love. Sorry, no picture available…
While they got to cuddle a little more in bed, I headed back down to the kitchen to prepare my contribution to the Mothers Day potluck brunch at our adult fellowship at church. The husbands were in charge of feeding the masses. I decided to keep it simple and healthy by bringing fruit. I bought a watermelon, two cantaloupes, and two honeydew melons. I had visions of an amazing watermelon sculpture but it wasn’t gonna happen. I had neither the time nor the talent… oh well. Here is a photo of the final product:
We made it to our class at church. There was plenty of food and fellowship.
This was my plate.
After church, we gave my wife some time to relax (nap). After a little while, we went out for lunch (since the kids didn’t attend the brunch). We went to one of our favorite Mexican buffets in Fullerton. This was one of my plates. I admit, I over-did it…
All-in-all, it was a good weekend. How did you spend Mothers Day Weekend?
