Mother's Day

Yesterday was Mother's Day!

We had a really busy day!

Cassandra had swimming lessons bright and early so I took her to those. Then we got home and got ready to go to our annual Mother's Day brunch at a local hotel.

We got there around noon and before eating, we took a few pics of everyone!

My Mom and Aunt Pat made the trip in from Buffalo (like they normally do) to have brunch with us so that was very nice!

We were a little disappointed in brunch this year. We've been going to the same place for probably 5-6yrs now and this year they totally changed things. The layout was very different and they cut way back on the variety of foods. For instance, they had NO fruit! How do you have brunch for kids with no fruit?!  That was very disappointing. They also cut down on a lot of side dishes and lots of desserts too. The food was still good and we still all ate plenty, but when you're used to something (and looking forward to it!) and it really changes, it's just not the same. You know what they say...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Luckily they still kept the kids room with the clowns! That's always a big hit with all of the kids. Avery got a few paintings done on her arms....

and even Cassandra was brave enough to have it done too!

After brunch, we dropped the kids off at my in-laws' and Gabe and I ran some errands. Then we headed back to my in-laws' so he could work on a few computer things for them. By the time we left there, it was way past the kids' we got home and put them to bed.  It was an absolutely beautiful day outside too and unfortunately I didn't get to enjoy any of it. was still a great day! I got to spend it with both my Mom and kids and our lovely family!
