Happy Days

Every year around this time I get showered with gifts and attention, because it is not only Mother's Day, but also my birthday. I was born on May 15th so if it doesn't fall right ON Mother's Day, it is usually 1 or 2 days after. This year was no different. Sunday was a treat for me... super relaxing! I got served breakfast in bed. Then got to open some great gifts from the family and Jon took care of all the "mommy chores": diaper changing, feeding the kids, cleaning the house, etc. I got to sit around, take naps, talk on the phone & surf the web. Of course, I also did one of my favorite activities: take pictures! First, I photographed these gorgeous pink tulips that I bought for myself. LOL! Yes, I buy my own flowers. Don't get me wrong -- Jon is a very generous gift-giver but he is all about practical gifts... he prefers to spend his money on things where he can see a return on investment (ROI), like a new lens for my digital SLR or a new sewing machine. Hey, I'm not complaining! ;)

I also had a blast watching the girls frolic around in their little kiddie pool. These kids are so easily amused! It was finally warm enough for them to do this so we took advantage. I love this picture because they are both standing in almost the exact pose in anticipation of a big water stream coming from their daddy's hose...


WHOOSH! Sophie got it on the head as Sydney screams in excitement...


It's just too fun to splash Sophie...


But Sydney got her turn too...


It was the perfect Mother's Day! Sunny skies. Sweet family. Beautiful scenery. Relaxing day. Now, I am waiting in anticipation because Jon said he would take a late lunch break and come home so he could give me my special birthday gift... I can't wait to see what it is! He usually doesn't get this excited about things. hmmmmm...
