A near perfect afternoon

Rob left for Prague and Budapest this morning, and will be gone for two weeks. :(  Luckily we had a busy and fun day planned. After kickboxing, we picked up some bagels and some friends and went to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. It was beautiful, the weather couldn't have been better, and it was so fun to hang out with Julie & Liza. The only reason I added "near" in the title is because I forgot to put sunscreen on any of us, so we're all a little pink now. A small price to pay.






The best part? While I was rushing the girls to find sandals and get out the door, Ellie was really mad and threw out this statement in retaliation: "You are SUCH a BORING MOM!" Later tonight, the girls were still talking about what a great day it was, and Ellie said "Mom, I guess you're not such a boring mom after all."

Boring is not something I would equate to your life. Every time I talk to you you are going from ballet, to swimming, to piano, etc. All I ask is that you don't tell my kids what they are missing! :)

You are such an AWESOME mom! Great post - fun afternoon, and yes, "nearly" perfect - we're both a little sunburned too ;-). The pictures are great . . . now I know what I want for Christmas!!

At least the boring statement was retracted...I never get retractions! My kids luckily haven't told me yet that I'm the mom most like Cruella DeVil...which is how I feel.....
