For Mother's Day I got breakfast in bed from my dear children. There is nothing like a breakfast made by your children to really appreciate the gift of love. It doesn't matter what they make, but they give love with their food. I love that they all try so hard to show me that they love me. It is so dear. I am so grateful for my lovely children. The hugs, kisses and cards & food are a blessing as are each one of them.
After breakfast we traveled to Maryland to the Howard County Fairgrounds to the Sheep & Wool Festival. I now love going to these craft festivals because my mother dragged me to them constantly as a child. I of course HATED them when I was a child, but now I appreciate them for the variety of handcrafted items available. My children seem to love these festivals, but it is probably due to the food! With kettle corn, lamb-burgers, lamb sausage, lamb BBQ, Goat cheese, and funnel cakes, what's not to love ??!!
I took the opportunity to get maple syrup, soap and a fireplace broom. Isn't it great what you can get at these things?
To make the day extra special, we spent it with my in-laws. It is so nice that the kids get the opportunity to spend time with their grandparents. Dixie also came along. She was SO GOOD! She did a good job of maintaining attention with me and also avoiding distractions. She got to practice LOTS of "People Greets". This was our first venture into a BIG area with her and she was great! She didn't mind the crowds or the animals. We met raisers from 3 other areas and one even knew her sisters that are in Richmond being raised.
I would have pictures to share from the day, but the 3; YES 3! people that I asked to take pictures, did not take any!!!!
Ummm, seriously? Baby in front pack, dog leash in hands, alternating turns pushing stroller, must I also take the pictures?
