At about 10:33am my grandma called to tell me that we weren't going to be going to walk on the river until 2:00pm which upset me more than it should have. (Darn pregnancy hormones) and I sat and glowered at the TV for the next couple of hours.
At noon, I called me grandma to ask if Buzzy and I should eat lunch prior to going to the river and she said yes. I asked why we were going so late and she told me because they were going to the Farmer's Market. What??? Without me??? She said they hadn't invited me because I'm pregnant and swollen and they didn't think I'd want to go. Gee, thanks for letting ME make that decision.
So Buzzy and I played a bit more, took a nap, went and had lunch and met my family at the river at 2:00. It was beautiful. (I have photos but my new computer setup makes it difficult to access them at the moment) The water was gray (normal for Washington), the sky was blue and slightly overcast, the weather warm (slightly muggy) but interrupted by a beautiful crisp breeze. We had smoothies at a fantastic little shop and walked some more. My cousin picked up shells for her collection and Buzzy oohed and ahhed and gooed and gahhed over all the doggies that passed.
*Courtney and I delved into some deep conversation on details for my new book that she will probably be co-authoring. But that is for another post, another time.
By the end of the walk a couple hours later my sciatic nerves were really acting up so we headed back into town for our 4:30 dinner/lunch at Sweet Tomatoes. YUMMM!! It was fantastically good but pregnant + hungry + buffet style goodness = one happy Mama!
We then drove back to my grandparent's house where I was allowed to rest while
everyone bathed Buzzy and cleaned out my
All in all it was a fabulous day!
To everyone who wished me a Happy Mother's Day in my comments. Thank you! Happy Mother's Day to you too. I apologize for not being able to comment individually. But know I was thinking about each and every one of you!
