Mother's Day Recap

We had a very nice Mother's Day. Riley slept until about 8am, which was great! (By the way...she had been getting up pretty early lately, and then I realized that when we moved her into her new bedroom, I did not move the black curtains- really just a black piece of fabric- that I had over her windows. So, I put it back..and BINGO- she is sleeping until about 8am again...ah, heaven for this sleepless Mama!!)... Anyway, we watched a Blue's Clues in bed together- another routine we have started on the weekends so I can lay down for *just a little longer*, and then she and Todd headed to Dunkin Donuts to buy donuts and get me a (decaf) coffee. They were gone for almost an hour, so by the time they got back we had to hurry through breakfast and showers and headed off to Mimi and Papa's house!

Everyone was there, and it was very nice. Riley ate a great lunch, and then took a nice nap, and then we opened presents and had chocolate cake for dessert- yum! We were able to finalize our plans for next weekend- more on that at a later date! And then we headed home and Riley and I spent some time blowing bubbles- her latest new obsession- on the back porch. It is really great- she goes out there and will be out for at least a half hour, so I can make dinner or do whatever...she just plays out there by herself- she is contained, so I don't have to worry about her- but she is also getting fresh air! And then we watched some more Sleeping Beauty and she went to bed great...and then Todd and I watched the best Survivor final EVER!!!

Guess that is about it...I have pictures, and also pics from our trip fishing on Saturday, but need to get them off the camera.

Make sure you take my little poll over on the sidebar!!

More later.....
