I had fully intended on going to the park and taking a family picture, but outside forces were working against me. I have no desire to stand in the wind and have crazy hair in my family picture, plus I was too lazy to change out of the Mickey Mouse shirt and pajama pants I slept in the night before.
I did however make a pan of homemade cinnamon rolls, but I made the dough and frosting the night before, then stuck them in the fridge till the morning. After a quick rise and bake I had a fresh pan of yummy rolls for breakfast, without actually having to do the work on Mother's Day. We took those to my dad's house for a quick breakfast, then sat around our house the rest of the day, watching DVR'd shows like Parks & Rec and SNL, with occasional breaks so somebody could check the score on the basketball game. Sports don't take a day off for Mother's Day.
We went to the Olive Garden on Saturday, but for a work party for David. We still counted it as a Mother's Day dinner, with the added bonus of not having to pay for it.
I took less than five pictures, which was quite lazy of me. The week before I took at least 50, just at the park, but on Mother's Day I slacked off. It's a good thing I compensated by taking tons every other day last week, some of just my kids and even a sprinkling of me and my kids, well, me and Ava.
