Afterwards, we went back to Gigi's, did some beading, petted some cats, and then I took Elizabeth home for a nap, got cleaned up, and then Sara and I took mom out to the Hat for a delicious pastrami sandwich and onion rings. I was amazed at how quiet the place was - don't people love their moms! Moms love pastrami! I mean, I am a mom. I love pastrami.
We got to take a few cute pictures with everyone when we got back to the house.
And then it was off to Mimi and Pa's house for more mothering fun! We had a trip on the duffy boat, where Ellie saw plenty of ducks and even a few puppy dogs riding on boats.
Tim and Jake and I picked up sushi for dinner, which we all enjoyed, along with a shortcake made by Tim himself! And then after a bath, Ellie helped Mimi open her special mail mail (Ellie LOVED being on special mail mail duty today, distributing cards.)
Beans refused to fall asleep on the way home, despite being exhausted. But she could not resist the power of some snuggling with mom, and so this is how my Mother's Day ended - absolutely perfectly.
