Mothers Day


We had a great Mothers Day!  
(minus the 5:30am wake up call Avin gave us )


 On Saturday, the day before Mothers Day we made a bunch of Chocolate dipped Strawberries and handed them out to our neighbors, the mommies of the circle.  I also made these blocks for my mom and my aunt.  They were a lot of fun and I can not wait to make more!


Alex painted this flower pot for me with my mom!  I LOVE IT!!  Thank you mom for helping her do this, it is very special!


On Mothers Day we headed for brunch at Olympic hill



The food is always amazing.  It is buffet style and we always eat too much. I love going here for brunch.  We usually go on Easter and Mothers Day.  This year we missed Easter because we were with Chads family and my mom and step dad were out of town! 


After brunch we headed over to my Aunt Cathy's house on my dads side. 


They had brunch going on there as well and Alex got to play with all my cousins and second cousins.  There are so many kids around her age she just loves it.  They all just run around and make a big giant mess! 


From there Chad and I dropped the girls off at my moms and they hung out with my mom and step dad while Chad and I went to see Iron Man 2.  We have not been to a movie in forever and it was nice to go out with just my husband and see a movie! 


I snapped a few pictures of the girls together outside my parents house!  I love the view they have! 
After the movie we picked up the girls and headed home.  they both fell fast asleep and Alex was asleep for the night!

Hope Everyone Had A Great Mothers Day!
