Today was another day off from school. Which is one of the reasons this SURPISE! post is a little late.
As I was sitting in the kitchen this morning, waiting for the coffee to brew, I wondered what on earth I would do to entertain my sweet child besides more videos.
Then my angels of mercy called. "Want to go get coffee and a pedicure?"
Like a drowning man on a sinking ship, I went running for the life vest.
"Get dressed, get dressed!!! C'mon, B!! Eat! Get dressed!!"
And so the day began, getting sweeter as it went.
After a venti decaf at Starbucks, we had our toes and our nails done. (My toes, B's nails...she's not too keen on having her toes done.)
Then the two of us picked up the dog, Brenna's bike and some lunch and headed for the park. Continuing the sweetness, we further celebrated the sunshine by heating up the jacuzzi a bit and pretended it was summer. We sat by the edge blowing bubbles and eating Easter candy.
Now, I'm enjoying the afternoon breeze, Brenna is enjoying the movie, "Daddy Day Care" and I'm ready to show you today's SURPRISE!
For so thoughtfully following my journey to Italy, and indulging me in extending my trip, I'm
A set of photos that I have edited and had made into note cards.
A little piece of Venice,
A little piece of Florence,
And a sweet treat!!!
I would have loved to have been able to send you a Bombolino, but these seemed to pack a bit better in the suitcase. Plus, there's chocolate involved...
So, leave a comment on this post and on Thursday, Brenna and I will pick a name from the trusty cowboy hat.
SURPRISE! Number two:
My sister, Carol picked her favorite comment from all the Italy posts, and that award is bestowed with great glee to Miss Pam Q.!!!!!!
It's become somewhat "everyday" to say ala Pam, "The moral of the story is, all's well that ends with a Bombolino."
(Her comment can be found here.)
Well said, my friend, well said.
Pam gets a sweet treat and a set of cards as well.
