Picture of the Day 5/10/09 – Happy Mother’s Day

Typical I am forced to stay in bed until my family has cooked breakfast which is served to me in the comfort of my own bed.  Then I am showered usually with homemade gits from my children.  That was not the case this Mother’s Day.  My hubby had committed us to an early wake up to travel across the desert to Hesperia, California, to assist his brother with a “little kitchen makeover” project for their mother’s kitchen.

So breakfast was a quick bowl of cereal and then off to the showers.  30 minuts later we were ready to roll.  Unfortunately my oldest daughter was ill with a nasty upper respiratory infection so I made her stay home and get some rest.  If I knew how the rest of the day was going to end, I would have stayed home with her.

While the boys starting discussing the project at hand, I grabbed my camera and ventured outside where the fun was.   The only flowers received by me this day where the ones I photographed in my MIL’s garden.  And the only fun being had was by the youngest of grandkids playing in the water.   Though I did enjoy trying to capture the moment.

Our day ended just before 10pm (though we still had at least an hour drive home).  Once the kids were done playing outside, I joined my hubby and brother on the kitchen remodeling project.  I guess you could say I was the Peacekeeper for the day.  A typical job for a mom!
