I know, I know we don't believe in fake holidays like Father's Day. But I got Brooke a plant stand a pot for mother's day.
This was my first Mother's day gift, I was so surprised Scott got me something. We generally only get each other gifts for our birthdays. Along with furniture buying recently we have also been collecting more house plants.
Perfect for this new corner of our living room.
Next I made apple pancakes for breakfast.
Nothing like griddle pancakes at the perfect temperature.
We also got this bar table to fill in the empty void in our kitchen.
Plus our counter tops are child height and we needed the extra counter space.
The kids made me a treasure map to find my gift from them.
Oh, look, the kids are actually playing in Funlandia between staring at screens.
To be fair, they have been playing outside more too.
Meadow made me flowers and Theo made me a card.
I gave Meadow a hug to thank her, then Theo joined too.
I completed our bedroom with a waterfall dresser for my clothes. Well, we still need art for the walls.
Meadow wants to a cat themed birthday party this year. I said we could have it at the cat cafe. Today seemed like a good day to check it out.
It's nice that most of our bike rides are on bike trails or protected bike lanes.
Wait, is this Mother's Day or Meadow's Day?
The cat side of the cafe was booked for the day but you could still view the cats through large windows.
Of course we had to bike past the latest Minneapolis sensation, the tulip house.
I had just heard about it the day before and thought we could check it out since we were close by. I didn't expect it to be so busy.
Still really pretty. I want to come back in the summer to see what their yard looks like normally.
We were biking back home when I spied Marhaba in the corner of my eye. I was like lets do their buffet.
We usually get their take out and had never been to eat inside.
It was so good.
It was so good.
This was turning out to be a rather fun Mother's Day.
Agreed. A little something for everyone.
Back home for more playground time.
And some transferring of my new houseplants.
With the downstairs neighbors out of town I worked on scraping and glazing their windows.
Since it was Mother's Day I thought I'd give Brooke a night off of reading to Theo.
