Mother's Day

I had big plans for Mother's Day, most of which involved solitude and my gardens.

Instead though, spontaneity ruled the day, and it was wonderful: breakfast in bed (English muffins with honey, coffee and cantaloupe), church, family bike ride to Culver's, lunch at Culver's (think Wisconsin, think butter burgers and calories upon calories upon calories), long bike ride back home (lots and lots of racing-- I'm exhausted!), a spontaneous stop at the local bike shop, a new bike for Madeleine (seeing her so thrilled with her new bike was a wonderful present!) and a little bit of gardening upon arriving home.

I hope everyone else had just as lovely a day as I.

Sounds like a very relaxing day! I love Culvert's. Too bad they don't seem to have them in the South.

Happy mothers day!

Mmmmm. Culver's.

Sounds like fun! I do believe you are not allowed to buy your kids things on Mother's Day, however.

Culvers, mmmmmm..... It's the only place I HAVE to go to when I go back home. I haven't found anything close down here.

And terri, I took you all to Great America (w/o Dad) on Mother's Day once. And on the way, a carload of teenage girls flipped me off.

it's me, Val said...

It cracks me up how Alexis calls it Culvert's with a "t". :)

I love that place. We have one here but not in bike-riding distance! Haven't been there in forever. Hope you had a great day --- sounded wonderful!
