Happy Mother’s Day! Hopefully your day is a good one and your kids treated you well.
I was woken up with the boys bringing me up some Mother’s Day gifts. Oliver had made me a card and a gift at school. The gift was a picture of him holding a sign that said, “Happy Mother’s Day” on it. It was a great job by him and his teacher.
The boys got me a pink pair of Pentax 8×21 U-Series UP Binoculars.
They are compact but of high quality and will be great to take hiking with us this summer. They also come with a lifetime warranty. I’m pretty excited by them. Oh yeah, they are super cute and pink!
They also gave me some double sided Wendy Cooper business cards.
There were some packages of Fujifilm Instax film and a Fuji Instax album. It wasn’t just any film but Air Mail and cartoon themed film. All of it was cool.
I am always intimidated to print out my photos. Jordon gave me a Itoya 11×14 portfolio which will force me to not only take some great photos but edit them and print them. Luckily I know of just the place.
For brunch, the kids took me to Smiley’s Buffet for brunch at 10:00 a.m. It was quiet when we got there and insane as we were leaving. Luckily we went early and got a spot (they don’t reservations for groups under 8).
I was kind of difficult when coming up with some Mother’s Day ideas to do and so Jordon just said fine, “I’ll plan something.” He had the kids pack their bags and place them in the car. After brunch were done, we got in the Ford Focus and hit the road. He drove us to Prince Albert National Park where we wandered into the Parks Canada office and bought a Discovery Pass that is good for all National Parks and National Historic Sites from now until May 2018. Jordon was giddy with it as he has wanted a Parks pass since he was a kid. They never had the money for it growing up and we got too busy when were adults but he was so happy purchasing it. He also got me a nice Parks Canada t-shirt.
We also took some time to try out the Parks Canada Red Chairs…
The first couple of many I hope to enjoy this summer. We also went for a walk around Waskesiu. Despite being before the long weekend, quite a few places were open.
All in all, it was a pretty great Mother’s Day. Thanks everyone for making it special.
