On the bench was a display of some very special handmade cards. Sullivan's actually brought me to tears as he declared me "The Best Mom Ever" for the following reasons:
- You make the best chocolate chip cookies
- You take me to the zoo
- You take me to the pool
- You stay home with me when I'm sick
- You love Easter and Christmas
- You love and care for me
In the afternoon, while Michael worked in the yard and the boys played outside, Oakley and I attended Mayfest -- a local arts festival in a historic park and on the campus of one of our universities. It's a beautiful setting and the weather was perfect.
She got her face painted, and together we danced the Maypole and snacked on kettle corn amidst artists, fountains, flowers, strolling performers and gypsy dancers.
They even had a small petting zoo this year and Oakley loved feeding the sheep, although she was more than ready to wash the slobber off when she was finished.
She kept saying, "This is so much fun, Mommy. Just me and you and you and me."
It was a perfect day in every way. Happy Mother's Day to you all!!
