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.
