Mother's Day

For the most part, Mother's want brunch, flowers, facials, and pampering on Mother's day. Not my mom. My mom decided she wanted to go on a 5.2 mile hike to see a waterfall. My mom rarely asks for specific things so we all decided to do what she wanted. However, I won't lie, we weren't excited for it. My dad and I mostly hung out in the back and complained about it. He cracks me up sometimes. Once we got about 3/4 of the way though it, I said "I can't do this, I'm pregnant." My mom stopped and looked back at me, "Really?!" and I replied "If I was could we stop and go back?" At that point, she turned around and kept hiking. My dad just about died laughing.
Once we reached the waterfall, we were a little....disappointed. It was a waterfall by definition, however the same effect could be given by a broken sprinkler head in on a slope in a backyard. I did take a picture in front of it though.
After our lovely hike, we had a picnic and my mom loved it. She was so happy all day long so I'm glad we did it for her. We had only about an hour to shower and change and head off to Mr. Bumblebee's family celebration for Mother's Day. His family meets at his grandmother's house for Mother's Day. We were having dinner there.
This is my favorite picture. That's Mr. Bumblebee's mom and his aunt....can you tell they are sisters? It gets worse, sometimes they accidentally show up in the same outfit. Great minds think alike...Mr. Bumblebee was really sweet and surprised me with a Mother's Day gift from the kids. Tess had chewed up a favorite pair of underwear of mine one day when she got into a laundry basket. I was upset because that's not like her. Well, inside of a cute "from the dog" card, there was a gift card to Victoria Secrets...awwwwwww!

P.S. Yes, I did wear my 7's on a hike, I really didn't believe we were actually going to go through with it till we got there...

I think a mother's day hike sounds fun! But I'm kinda a dork like that. And I'm going to have a long talk with the hubs tonight about how Ringo failed to acknowledge his mom on mother's day. Or maybe I'll just do something fantastic for him on father's day and make him feel bad.
