Later in the evening, my brother was excited to rent a paddle board and ended up giving the kids and I rides. It was just beautiful out, with the sun shimmering on the water. We definitely made some neat memories.
Jimmy took a turn as well!
However, Jimmy and the kids shocked me with a special surprise Mothers Day/Birthday combo gift - a Kindle Fire! I am absolutely loving reading on this, and am all about the convenience of ordering books and reading at night!!
For lunch my mom made one of our favorite meals - mojo pork served on toasted bread with homemade mango salsa, avocado, grilled onions, and fresh mangos. Unbelievably good.
Everything was so fresh and delicious, and it was nice eating at home together as a family and having time to visit.
My mom gave me a few Mother's Day treats, including this sun hat which I have great plans for...
Monday I was treated to a very special picnic in Madi's classroom! We had the best time, and the 1st graders treated all of us moms like queens, serving us with enthusiasm! Madi gave me this story she had written about me, which is definitely a keeper.
