Later that night, we went to see the Bodies Exhibit at the museum. It was very interesting and fascinating to me, being a nurse. It was a private showing hosted by the hospital I work for so it was a lot of medical people there. I highly recommend going to see it. I do NOT highly recommend taking kids, though. I did not take mine and have no plans to. Its pretty straightforward anatomy and I do not want to explain some of it to my 8 year old-yet.
The next day after I got home from work, Blaine had made an awesome stroganoff dinner and then we had birthday brownies and mint chocolate chip ice cream. Yum! See my birthday candle? It was a big hit and all the kids had to take turns blowing it out.
Garrett was especially into lighting and re-lighting the candle for the other two to blow out. He is becoming a little pyro (just like me!).
Sunday was Mother's Day. I had to work that day too but came home to a lovely clean house, yummy steak dinner, flowers and cards from my kids. I feel so blessed and loved this last weekend and enjoyed being showered with love and attention from friends and family.
I am so thankful for my husband and kids. They are a huge support and blessing to me and I'm thankful to have them in my life.
Hope you all had as great a Mother's Day weekend as I did!
