Mothers Day 2006

Sandy had a very nice Mother’s Day today.  Kevin picked out everything for her.  We went shopping on Saturday while she was at work.  Kevin knew ahead of time exactly what he wanted to get her, which was flowers and a bracelet.  So first we went to the florist.  Knowing her favorite color is purple, Kevin picked out several nice purple flowers (including purple roses) and a purple vase.  The florist added thier usual nice touch, and then he picked out a balloon to go with it.
Next we went on a quest to find a bracelet.  We knew mama liked gold, so Kevin found a few nice gold bracelets and we eventually narrowed it down to one and bought it for her.  Next we spent some time picking out a nice Mother’s Day card.  We went through a ton of them, and Kevin finally settled on a Spongebob Mother’s Day card that he really got a kick out of.

When we got home he signed the card and added dozens of X’s and O’s to the inside for mom, and we wrapped her card and gift and left them with the flowers on the dining room table.  When mom got home Saturday evening she could see the flowers, but he made her wait until Sunday morning to open her card and gift.  She enjoyed everything a great deal, and Kevin topped things off by taking us out for a Mother’s Day Brunch at The Parkway Chateau.  They had a great brunch buffet, complete with everything you can imagine for breakfast and lunch, including eggs, bacon, jumbalaya (with shrimp and brats), steak, twice baked potatoes, and much much more.  Click on the thumbnail images if you’d like to see Sandy’s flowers or gift up close.  I added the quarter to add scale to the bracelet to show it’s actual size.
