5-8-11 While the Cat's Away the Mice will Play
Joe had to be out of town overnight so it's been a fun couple of days of me just hanging out with my boys! On Mother's Day weekend, it seemed fitting for us to support the local Pregnancy Aid Center. I was celebrating motherhood, babies, and all of the women who have had a hard road to tread upon becoming mommies. The Pregnancy Aid Center put on quite an event. All four of us had a great time!
A dream was realized for the boys when the had the opportunity to sit in a real squad car. After all, they've been playing "Police" every day for a month straight! Conrad loved that he saw the cop's handcuffs. I loved that neither of the boys mentioned that they had handcuffs. Just doesn't seem like something a public servant would pat me on the back for.
We ended our day with a trip to Lowe's to pick out some flowers and one vegetable: cucumbers. The boys are going to have a cucumber garden. They worked hard on cleaning out a garden area and then were eager to plant their cucumbers. Max was so eager that he yanked the plants out of their containers with no caress. I don't think the roots will survive; we'll see.
