And I think to myself ... "What a Wonderful World."

That was the background music to my Mother's Day.

It was truly a wonderful day. Why can't every day be like Mother's Day?

#1 - Church

#2 - Two rolls of sushi shared with family while opening presents

#3 - Presents which included, VISA gift card to use toward New York trip, One-hour massage, and local coffeehouse gift card ... PERFECT!

#4 - Lunch at Japanese steakhouse with sassy Japanese chef named, Jay, and lady at opposite side of grill who had too many Bloody Marys and talked way too much

Jay in all his glory

Proud of the fact that K Belle & La Petite Belle caught rice in their mouths on first try (I have taught them well.)

#5 - Visiting my mom & giving her some great gifts

#6 - Cheesecake at my parent's house

#7 - Watching Beau help my dad with a technology issue (this is a standard visiting activity)

#8 - Watching girls play outside ... playing outside is the best (said with my best Nacho Libre voice).

#9 - Not-so-great movie at home with Beau, but great snacks that made up for it

#10 - Lots of cuddlin' from the hubby

Like I said ... wonderful day! Hope you were blessed too.

Playing outside is the best.....especially when you're enjoying a quiet moment with your mom inside.
