Most of our Mother's Days are spent with Paul's parents or my mom, but this year his parents were (still are) on a cruise and we are seeing my mom this weekend, so it was just the 4 of us.
It started out great. Olivia came in a woke me up (Paul was already long since up) to give me her present. It was a little book they made in school called, "If You Give a Mom a Muffin" and of course it came with a muffin and coffee (a packet of instant coffee that Paul helped them make). Kayley gave me the same thing, of course, except she ate the muffin herself on Friday, as per the story (the story had the mom discover at the end that her child had eaten her muffin). They also had made me cards and it was all really great and special.
We had brunch reservations at 11:30 which would have meant that we could have gone to church at 9:30, but I didn't get up until 8:00 and by the time we did the gifts it was too late, so we skipped and took our time getting ready for brunch. Right before we left Olivia started having a fit about her hair. She got a haircut the day before, just a trim, and she suddenly felt it was too short, and hated it, although you totally couldn't even tell it was any shorter. She had a complete meltdown out of the blue.
The restaurant was busy, of course, and even though we had a reservation we still had to wait a bit so of course they whined about that, and granted it was almost noon by now and all they had had up until now was a little bit of smoothie. We finally got our food but the girls didn't care for theirs too much so they whined about that.
We went home to change and then went to Snoqualmie Falls. I'd never hiked to the bottom before so I wanted to do that. They liked it ok but Kayley whined a lot coming back up (steep hill and all).
The rest of the day was pretty good but they both were pretty whiny the whole day. I don't know what they're problem was, just tired I guess. It was still a fun day.
