Mother’s Day was sunny, bright and beautiful. Thank you for the kind Happy Mother’s Day wishes :-). They really warmed my heart <3.
After a leisurely morning, and a delicious soy latte, we hopped in the car and headed to our local amusement park. It was my son’s great idea. He had heard on the radio that Mom’s get in free on Mother’s Day. Even with the gorgeous weather there were virtually no lines to get on the rides. Sweeeet!
The kids were so happy and excited to be at the amusement park. Their joy totally made the day really special. We of course went on several kiddy rides, but I had a chance to sneak off and ride Tremors – a large wooden rollercoaster. Wooden rollercoasters are my favorite! I love the drops. My husband went on his top ride Aftershock. You can see the rollercoaster videos if you click on the links. Aftershock is crazy intense, even for me – a lover of rides.
When we got home from the restaurant the sweet Mother’s Day cards I received were placed around a gorgeous orchid plant.
*Tip: Did you know that orchids only need 3 ice cubes of water once per week?
Hanging off one of the branches of the orchid plant was a beautiful present that took me a while to notice, which only added to the delight.
In my heart, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world to have such a loving family.
Thank you to my husband and children for a really special day, and most of all for your unconditional love!
