My mother's day weekend started on Saturday. We got up early to hit the farmers market and grab some yummy frozen yogurt and took Evan to the park to play a bit too. Ed cooked up a yummy dinner and I headed out on my own to watch "Wolverine" while Ed bathed and tucked Evan in for sleep. I have to say, it was an awesome movie and it was nice to get out and have the night to myself. I of course gorged on candy, nachos and an icee during the movie. YUMMMM!!! =)
Sunday morning Evan woke me up with the sweetest Mother's Day greeting and an awesome card. Check it out:
Ed cooked another awesome breakfast and we all got ready to head out to Monterey to spend the day. We attended mass at San Carlos Cathedral and the priest's homily totally made me cry! lol!! After mass, we grabbed some lunch at the Lopez Restaurante Y Cantina, a local favorite. We weren't disappointed in the least bit!! I ordered the chicken enchilada plate and had a virgin strawberry mango margarita. YUM!! We finally rolled our stuffed selves outta there and headed to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Evan had a BLAST!!!! =) Unfortch, I don't have any pics from the day since my other Mother's Day present was still charging. Needless to say, he was amazed at all the animals we got to see as well as touch! In the touch pool, he was able to run his hands over a batray! A definitely highlight of the visit! Afterwards, we ate some seafood along Cannery Row and of course, I got some yummy ice cream! It wasn't long before we pooped ourselves out and decided to make the trek home. Evan and I passed out and Ed drove us home.
I hope every mother out there felt as much love and appreciation as I did this weekend. =)
