mother's day

Indian Blankets cover most of the roadways in the hill country this Spring
First off I'd like to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day.  Secondly, I think I celebrated the best Mother's Day yet.  I can remember that last year tears were involved...and maybe the year before that too.  Yikes. is a glimpse of what my Mother's Day looked like.
I was greeted by this little guy on a one lane bridge on River Road.  His wing appears injured.
It started off early Thursday with a luncheon at the church where E attends preschool.  I must say I had the most handsome little date.  With 2 1/2 hours to kill between the time I dropped him off in the morning and lunchtime, I decided to drive down River Road, climb a mountain (not really-just a big hill) and refuel at a little cafe on the square.  Lunch was great, my little buddy was so well behaved.  He is such a sweet boy.

Pardon my cankles-climbing 215 steps up Mt. Baldy in Toms was not the brightest idea I've ever had.
Incoming storms made the view across the hill country hazy.  But it beholds mystery, don't ya think?
And because I climbed up and down 215 rocky steps in Toms, and because I forgot to eat breakfast, and because I wasn't prepared with any type of beverage and because I thought I was going to heave-I stopped off at a little cafe on the square
Handsome Boy
Today I slept in (ummm, 8:15a) and was served pink frosted doughnuts (my fave since childhood) in bed and was given a frame with Eli's hand print, a purse and a card.  Eli was so proud of his gifts.  We headed out to the kid-friendly Mueller's Farmers Market which featured live music, a balloon artist clown and cool playscape.  Afterwards we stopped off for a bite to eat and then visited Jeff's parents.  We had a great visit, steak & potato dinner with bananas foster for dessert.  Ummm, Yum!  As the sun went down we packed up and our little guy fell asleep in the car.
He loves "getting weird" in Austin
Take note:  NOT scared of clowns...he may come from an Aggie-rich family but he accepts balloon swords from clowns dressed in burnt orange

See my scarface?  He fell down a few steps on our stairs...SECONDS after his daddy told him to pay attention and watch where he was going...learning moments.
yea, yea, my burgers is upside down...but it tastes all the same.  Mother's Day Burgers are the best.
I wish I had taken this picture 10-15 minutes later.  The sky was beautiful.  But the view isn't bad either.  Great ending to a good day.
