Weekly Wrap-up: Mother's Day Weekend

We came back this week from our trip to Helsinki so it was a short week of recovery for us. We were both busy with work Jason left for Houston Saturday morning and will be gone the next week. I was sad for him to miss my first Mother's Day, but since surprised me by celebrating the Norwegian Mother's Day back in February (and he's bringing me goodies from the States), he's off the hook. ;-)

Saturday morning, Madi and I met some friends from work at Soma Gard. It's an outdoor petting zoo and play area. There were a lot of people there, but the place is so big you can't really tell! Madi loved walking around and seeing the sheep, chickens, ducks, cows, and horses. She also loved jumping on the trampoline, but her favorite was by far the swing!

My first Mother's Day turned out to be fabulous! Although I did miss Jason, he had a few tricks up his sleeve for me. He sent me a beautiful flower arrangement on Saturday and I got cards from my family and a fabulous charm bracelet from my mom!

Then when I woke this morning I had the best surprise yet... Jason had created a wonderful video card for me with pictures of our family. I have watched it over and over again and start crying everytime I do. I feel so blessed to have him in my life and he is a wonderful husband and father! (Although I am not too happy about how high he is setting the bar for the upcoming Father's Day... haha)

Best. Present. Ever.

Later in the morning my friend Jennifer and her son Graham came over. Her husband was away at our church Men's Retreat so the two of us celebrated Mother's Day by cooking a fabulous brunch for ourselves and enjoying a play date with our little ones (who had to have whichever toy the other was playing with... ;-) ).

Madi and I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend together! We are sure missing Daddy already, but thank goodness for FaceTime dates so we still get to see him while he's gone!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you fabulous moms out there and I hope you have a great week!
