Mother's Day

Today (actually yesterday, now) was Mother's Day. The one day a year that all mothers in the U.S. get to be recognized for their hard work, showered with praise, gifted with flowers, hugged with love, and so on and so forth.

We spent ours by going on a picnic. That was quite enjoyable. We sat out at a park near a beach, took in the sun (and the wind), and enjoyed a nice family outing. After lunch, we went on a short little hike to enjoy the local views of the beach.

While we would have loved to spend more time there, the wind was a bit of a turn off, so we made our way back home fairly early. Once we got back, the boys killed zombies while the girls raced in MarioKart.

Later in the evening, we all sat around and watched the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice, which ended favorably - I still can't believe that Joan Rivers is 75 years old.

A mellow Mother's Day for sure. I only wish I could have had my family be there too...
