I came downstairs this morning to a big hug from Colin and a special card he made at school. I love that in grade seven, the teacher is still making time for the kids to make a card for their moms! Colin warned me that it was a little sappy, and indeed it was. But I love a little sappy on Mothers Day!
This morning we broke from Mothers Day routine and instead of a breakfast in bed made by the boys, I took my mom out for a Mothers Day tea at London Farm before she went to church. It was lovely and a rare chance to have a quiet conversation with my mom.
When I got home, the boys presented me with two hanging baskets they had picked out for me, again breaking from tradition as they usually choose the plants and fill the baskets themselves. This is also the first year since Adam was five months old that the boys haven't painted flower pots for Mothers Day. Oh, the times are changing!
We drove downtown to have lunch at two of Vancouver's food trucks - Roaming Dragon and Bada Bing - which is something we've been meaning to do for awhile. We also stopped by Thierry for some lemon macarons and an eclair for Adam. Love a little foodie adventure!
As we walked around downtown, we were trying to find some of the Terracotta Warriors that have just gone up. The boys and I have a history of tracking down the orcas, bears and eagles and so it continues!
