My mom came in town this weekend to see me. I know it was because of the complete breakdown I had while on the phone with her last weekend, but I’ll take what I can get. I was house/dog-sitting for friends this weekend, so it worked out well.
I picked her up at 8:45 Saturday morning, and we went to have breakfast at Amelie’s. Then we went out to the Whitewater Center to watch some kayak trials. Trials for what, I don’t know, but it’s always fun to watch when they host. We went back to the house to rest up a bit, then had some FABulous sushi at Rusans. Went back to the house, with a stop at Trader Joe’s for some munchies, to watch The Blindside. As wonderful as everyone says it is.
Sunday we went out to Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. I thought it would be packed, since it was Easter Sunday, but the parking lot was only about a quarter full. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful day surrounded by Spring.
The weekend weather was cooperative, and we had a lovely two days together.
Now I just need to get her out during boat season!!
