I'm pretty sure we are at reason 7685 of why I love my husband. Let me tell you why, this time, so you all can be jealous.
Our lovely daughter who has been sleeping through the night decided 2:30am was a reasonable time to want to wake and eat, Charlie being the great husband/dad that he is took the feeding. Then our wonderful son who likes to wake at the crack, thought 5:45am was a great time to start the day, Charlie again took him. Mary got up again at 6:30am and I went to get a bottle and Charlie offered to take her so I could go back to sleep, and I did, until 8am.
At 8am, I came down and was welcomed to Henry yelling, Happy Mother's Day! Of course that was followed by big hugs and kisses. He wanted to give me my cards and gifts, so who am I to turn him down. I should have taken a picture of the card he gave me. It was the head of chocolate lab and the card was hysterical. Charlie said Henry picked it out all by himself. I also got a card from Charlie that was very sweet. Henry helped me rip open the gift and inside were three tiny boxes. Henry wanted to know where is new CARS car was but I told him it was Mommy's day not Henry's.
Inside two of those boxes were these amazing rings! The blue turquoise is for December (H's bday) and the garnet is for January (M's bday). That is my wedding band in the middle.
Inside the other box, was a Pandora charm for my other baby, Ellie. The charm looks just like her. I had asked Charlie to get me one so I would have it to remember her and he remembered. Reason 7686, why I love him.
After all the fun gift opening, we headed out to brunch at Blue Ridge Grill. It was SOOO YUMMY. Then we took some pictures by the fountains and Henry of course got to throw in some pennies.
The afternoon was spent watching Henry run through the sprinkler, ride his bike, a nap by Mary and a Target run with my Mom.
Dinner was something my mom had asked for and of course Charlie obliged. We had lobster ravioli in a homemade cream sauce. The cream sauce is to die for and probably will kill us someday but for now it was delicious! Dessert was a summer favorite of strawberry shortcake, it was so refreshing!
I ended the day getting snuggles with Henry on the couch. I don't think I could have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you to my amazing husband for making the day perfect and thank you to my babies for being the best little ones someone could ask for!
