A Happy Mother's Day

Hope all of you had a wonderful day today.  My family honored me with dinner out last night.  Otherwise, it's been a low key but meaningful weekend.  Today the dr made pancakes for me, at the boys' requests.  At least this year we were all together.  Last year, the dr wasn't here so my children took me downtown to the neatest little place called Boll Weevil's.  I love the red painted bricks.

They specializes in ginormous desserts.  And I do mean ginormous!  Upon entering, there is a glass case with every kind of cake imaginable to mankind.  I could stand at that counter forever trying to choose.  (excuse the flash)

Can't go wrong with turtle cheesecake!  One of my favs!
Get the picture of the size?

Afterwards, we went for a walk down the brick paved streets.  Don't you love the charm of brick roads?

These are my kids.  The lights of my life.  The redhead, well, she's going off to college this week.  Getting a jump start on things before school starts in fall.  She hopes to get a summer job.  She'll be about 3 hours from our next place. boo hoo  And who said kindergarten was hard?? Can't believe I have to go through this 2 more times with the boys.  But, she's my only daughter.  My firstborn.  This was a sad happy mom's day for me.  But I'm proud of the independent woman she's becoming.  Spread your wings and fly baby girl!  It's nice to be a proud mamma but hard to be a scared one. 

 Don't forget to enter my giveaway Target gift card here.
Will be gone with the princess this week.  Be back in time for the giveaway.  Have a great week!

Love these pictures. Happy Mother's Day. You have such a beautiful family.

Congratulations to your daughter. It's so hard when the first one moves out and on....I know, I know. It gets easier with the next then well, the last just told me she wants to live with us until she gets married. LOL, this is going to get interesting! Maybe I've made home a little too comfy....

Well I must first of all say thank you for becoming a Follower, you are so sweet. Then second, let me just say (if I haven't already:) this blog is so pretty and has a such a warm loving feeling about it.
I work in a very busy medical practice and have a large Fellowhip program in our clinic so I know exactly what your husband (and you) are going through right now 2 years into med school. And part about your daughter, yes, bitter sweet...
Best of luck to all of you and thank you for sharing your wonderful place in life!

Glad you had a good Mother's Day. So sad and happy to know that our kids grow up and fly away. Hopefully your lovely princess will come home after school is done.
What a wonderful place to have dessert. Looks like one could feed a whole family!
Hugs, cindy S

The Boll Weevil looks like a charming place to enjoy being with your beautiful family on Mother's Day. And, to walk those cobblestone streets!! There aren't any in Chicago but we had plenty living in Charleston, S.C.!! It's been awhile since I've commented but I'm still visiting!
