There are few days in life that I would call completely perfect. Most days I enjoy. Most days I am content, happy, not covered in too much poop or Cheerios. I love my life. But some days, some day are just perfect. Mother’s Day this year was one of those days. Here is a little photo-recap for ya’ll.
The day started off per usual: Ellen got up at 6:30 because she doesn’t understand the concept of “the weekend” yet. We went to 9 o’clock Mass, and I got to stand up to get a blessing because I’m a mom and whatnot. I love doing that. I feel so special! Then, Mike had to go to work. Wah wah….But, he only had to be there for an hour-ish and Ellen was napping anyway, so I got some alone time. Bingo!
Ellen surprised me with a card, chocolate and flowers. Those are my favorite kind of gifts. I really don’t need more stuff, and these things are so enjoyable and nummy and pretty. Ellen is also taking me to the nursery for more flowers tomorrow. When she heard we were going, she got all excited and thought she was going to sing weird kid songs and eat Cheerios. Then we had to tell her it was a plant store and she cried.

After gifts, we decided to go to Minnehaha Falls because I wanted to be outside in the 80 degree, sunny weather. We had never been there, so we didn’t know what to expect. Oh my word. This was the coolest place ever. It is officially our favorite Minnesota spot. A really cool waterfall in a park with tons of people watching. Yes.

Kissers! (Say it in a monster voice to get the full effect of how I say it.)
Then, Mike got hungry, so we decided to grab a bite.
There is a restaurant in the park. It is my new favorite restaurant. I can’t even. I can’t. It’s so ummynums. So good. Sorry. I blacked out thinking about it.
We waited in line for over an hour to put our order in. It was so worth it. We went to the separate adult beverage line to get some waiting cocktails. Then, we played Scrabble and talked to our line-mates. (Sidenote: I typed “separate adult beverage” and my computer changed it to “desperate adult beverage”, and now I think my computer is smarter than I give it credit for.)

A band played while we ate. Mike said they sounded very smooth jazz, and I said that they looked nothing like Kenny G.
And, of course, we did a crossword. Duh.
So, do you see what I mean? There aren’t many days that are as perfect as that. Most days are just really good or normal. Some are bad to the bone. But, Mother’s Day this year? It was perfect. Finally, I just wanted to say:
