Mother’s Day Recap

Despite some rain yesterday, we briefly visited the Garden Theme Park, which included a Champagne Brunch. Unfortunately, I’m still not completely over my cold, so we kept the visit short.

The toddler got to enjoy some rides

As I mentioned above, I’m still battling a cold, which is bad enough that I can’t sleep at night. Hubby thinks I’m not getting better because I don’t rest enough. I think he may have a point, and I’ve decided to get plenty of rest today. We’ll see if it helps…

Questions: What did you do yesterday? What was the best thing you ate? I truly enjoyed the chocolate fountain… :-)

Be well,

    Happy (belated) Mother's Day! That chocolate fountain looks great!

    Mother's Day was a few weeks ago here- I spent Saturday with my mom though which was nice. Best thing I ate this weekend? A simple sandwich. Purely because it was exactly what I was craving at the time. Fresh deli meat, soft bread, cracked black pepper and freshly picked summer tomatoes. Delicious.

  15. Holy cow, look at that fountain. I want one in my house. Looks like you had a really nice mother's day.

  16. Wow...a Mother's day well spent. :) I just want drink up that chocolate fountain right now. hahaha...

  17. Love that chocolate fountain! Awesome! And it's nice that the little one ate grapes. My kids are NOT sweet eaters that much so when there is birthday cake they take one bite and that's it! I wish I could do that!

    I had a low key mom's day. Slept in until 10:00! Had breakfast made for me, watched cooking shows for a while and then spent some time at the park with my kids. Just perfect for me!

  18. I've always wanted to try chocolate from a fountain! Glad you had a great time. My toddler would have wanted the chocolate and the grapes!

  19. Mmm, chocolate fountains are the best! Hope you get over the cold soon. Rest and lots of fluids is definitely the key!

  20. Wow, that chocolate fountain is what dreams are made of! My mother's day was so great - lot's of time with my number one partner in crime!

  21. I am dealing with a cold right now too... ugh!

    I was at the beach for a few days with my best pal then my husband and kids met us there on Mother's Day. It was wonderful!

  22. Looks like you had a fun Mother's Day! We didn't go for MD. We usually do no this year. I spent a large chunk of my day cuddling on the couch with my hubby.

  23. Andrea, that gigantic chocolate fountain is so indulging...gosh! I wish I was there. I can't believe it my eyes.... Salivating already! haha.... I'm sure you had a great time there.
    Best regards,
