Mother's Day Weekend

This weekend was just phenomenal. I've definitely got a case of the Monday blues after it. It was perfect. Not only was it Mother's Day on Sunday, but my brother, Andy, and his girlfriend, Anna, were in town. It was one of the most fun and relaxing weekends I've had in a long time.

Saturday, Andy and Anna came over and spent the day just hanging out. It started off by picking up my online score, a plastic picnic table for Callum for $8! Best find ever. The boys were setting it to just the right height. Callum was a huge help, obvi.

Then, we took a walk to Camp Bar, this really cool up north themed bar just a few blocks from our house. They are dog friendly, so we jumped at the opportunity of bringing the pups. We took Jax and Andy and Anna's dog, Leinie. Everyone loved the outing. It was so cool to sit and have a beer with Callum and the dogs. And, believe it or not, everyone was on their best behavior.

That evening, my cousin, Megan, and her boyfriend, Tom, stopped over for dinner and a few drinks. We haven't seen them in a while, so it was so fun to sit around, have a few margaritas, and catch up, 

Sunday was just perfect. There are literally no other words to describe it. Matt, Andy, and Anna worked on an amazing breakfast of crepes for all of us. It was perfect, and beyond amazing to not have to cook or clean up after breakfast.

Not only that, but there is nothing like waking up and your house is filled with so many people you love. It was a slow, easy morning, filled with good food, strong coffee, and lots of relaxing.

Matt had Callum surprise me with this sweet poem and his hand prints. The poem definitely made me tear up. I just want my baby to stay a baby forever! I don't think that's too much to ask. 

It turned out to be a really dreary day, but we were able to venture out to the park with the pups for a little bit after nap time. George managed to fall a ton while we were playing ball, and Jax found some good smells to roll in, so they were both soaked when we got home. But, I think the fresh (cold and wet) air did us a little bit of good.

We ended the day with dinner at Maxie's Southern Comfort with our little family of three. We had to wait about 45 minutes for a table, but it was definitely worth it. Callum was such a good sport while we waited, and ate like a champ at dinner. He tried almost everything we put in front of him, which is almost unheard of. The food was just amazing: mac n cheese, a pork belly pizza, wings, crab and corn chowder. I was uncomfortably full when we left. And, they were giving away $10 gift cards to all the moms! Win. Win.

It was the perfect Mother's Day. I felt so loved and appreciated by both my boys. It was one of those days where my heart felt so full the whole time. Nothing in this world beats being this kid's mother. It is the hardest thing I have ever done, but by far the best. It is definitely what I was made to do.
