I was so difficult when it came to the surprise. Keith purposefully suggested a place that wasn't close for lunch so that we would have to go by the massage place on the way back. While didn't suggest anything else, I did hesitate to go in the first place because it was past nap time and Annabelle hadn't napped yet. We went anyway. :) Then I complained because Keith took the long way (which really wasn't the long way anyway), then complained because he wanted to stop at the park for pictures when I just wanted a little snapshot in front of a tree because I didn't have any pictures that I could find of me with both kids. THEN I complained because he suggested that we go get ice cream in front of Annabelle and I thought we should just go straight home because she was super tired by then. With all of Keith's pushing, we ended up arriving at the massage place at the exact right time, and I got a wonderful neck and back massage (my favorite massage spots... along with my feet)! I sure am a difficult person to surprise (just ask Nikki), but it's always worth it (for me anyway) in the end!
In addition to the wonderful surprises today, Annabelle made some beautiful Mother's Day presents for me at school (and has been saying "Happy Mother's Day" all week... I LOVE that!!!). She made me a card, painted a flower magnet with her picture in it, and decorated a flower vase for me. It's crazy how happy those little crafts can make a Mommy! I LOVE it!
Thank you Keith, Annabelle, and Corgan for a wonderful Mother's Day! I love you guys!
