Happy Mother's Day!

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!  My mom is the easiest person to find a gift for.  You could honestly buy her anything and she would genuinely love it.  This is great until I'm surrounded by a dozen things that I know she'll like and I can't make up my mind on what to choose.  I've kind of made it a tradition to get her ornaments from different countries. I hadn't planned on being home for Mother's Day while I was in Belgium, but I found a beautiful lace ornament that I had to get for her.  If only the rest of the family was that easy to shop for!

Dad made us all breakfast and we had a relaxing and leisurely morning.  It was beautiful out so my parents and I took a nice drive down to Woburn where we visited both of my grandmothers.  They are both doing well and it was great to be able to catch up with them and other family members that I hadn't seen in a while.

A Beautiful Day In Dracut

Yesterday was my sister's baby shower.  Although the day was crazy and hectic everything went very well and I think everyone had a great time.  After the shower a few of my aunts came back to our house where we sat out on the porch watching the little kids (and my mom) play hide and seek.  The past two days have been so beautiful.  I'm glad I still have more time in Dublin but every nice day we have here makes me dread returning just a little bit.  Hopefully we'll be getting some great weather for a while after I get back!
