Mother’s Day weekend has come and gone, and I have to say, it was one of the best family weekends we have had lately. It was full of 100% great quality family time! Which, I think came at just the right time. Next week Lennox and I will be traveling up to Cape Cod, then I may be going to London for a week or a few for work, then Lennox will be 3 and then I’ll be going to Chicago for BlogHer, so there is just a lot going on soon – so some quality time together was just what we needed!
At school we had a Mother’s Day breakfast, which of course she always loves when I go to school with her:
Friday night we went shopping for some new goodies at the outlet mall and Lennox got to ride the carousel, which was pretty much the highlight of her day!
The highlight of my night, other than being together with everyone? New coach purse for Mother’s Day from Kyle!
Saturday morning we had gymnastics and then did some errands and had lunch out. Simple enough, but still fun! Lennox is really enjoying gymnastics – she is really good at the balance beam (the ones a little lower to the ground she will do without any help) and is learning how to do a back flip on one of them!
We also spent the afternoon/evening outside in the BEAUTIFUL weather (Sunny, 80*, with a little breeze). We worked on Lennox’s gift for mother’s day. Kyle had gotten all the supplies for us to make a flowerpot together. Can’t wait to plant some flowers in them this week with Lennox!
Then on Sunday, Mother’s Day, we headed out to Dallas, (after Lennox finally woke up at 930am!) which we rarely do. We finally made it to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science; it is an amazing new museum. We had such a great time and have so much more to see next time (thanks to the membership we got for Christmas from my sister!).
After the museum we took a walk for a few blocks and ended up at the brand new Klyde Warren Park. I had seen the park on TV when it first opened and it looks pretty awesome. Lennox loved watching all the people and puppies! We were able to get some yummy food truck food and then of course, play in the big fountains. That probably was the highlight of her day 😉
I hope everyone else had a great mother’s day!
