Feliz dia de Madres para mi!

What a wonderful Mother's Day! I was served breakfast in bed by Roy and Antonio and then we all ate the waffles at the dining room table as I had visions of syrup and peanut butter all over my bed.

Had a wonderful church service, the sermon was wonderful on things we should be teaching our kids - was glad for the encouragement to keep on doing what we're doing!

Got a nap in that afternoon and then at 5:00 people showed up here, including all of my children. I miss them on Mother's Day but that's for another post. Anyway, we had about 20 here for a bbq and lots of wonderful food. I got a new bike seat from Paco for him. It goes on my bike so I don't have to pull the bike trailer all over town this summer. Also got a gift certificate from Troy to REI for a bike helmet... the family gave me a coupon book of things like, "night off from cooking," "car wash," "night of babysitting," Day of R&R, includes taking Paco"... great things. And then dh got me some money so I can go to the spa and get a facial or whatever I want. Went way overboard but how can I complain??? Needless to say, it was a great day. My brothers and their families came, along with my parents, Roy's mom, sister and great family friend, Doris and her son, Doug and then all the kids that follow us around were here, too!

Here is a picture of Paco and I on the bike with the new seat:
