Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!  I'm sorry I haven't visited you all this weekend - I've been one busy Mom.
Can you tell what this flower is?
After our 11 year old son's baseball game last night, the boys surprised all us Mom's with a baseball carnation!  One Dad had the great idea, got all the other Dad's to fork over the $ and the boys presented them to us last night.  

Starting Friday night at 8:00 and ending tonight at 6:15, our 2 boys played 7 games.  The tournament was here in our town - we have a great park system with beautiful fields.  So many teams coming in compliment us on our  town facilities and want us to host more tournaments. It's A LOT of work, my husband and I volunteer many hours.  I'm just glad we aren't the co-ordinators of the event. Not to leave her left out and lonely, our daughter works the concession stands around the facilites.  She is one tired, but slightly richer girl tonight.   

Unfortunately  neither boy's team came home with any hardware, but it was a fun weekend.  

Our older son played his first game on the BIG high school field.  In 2 weeks this will be his home field - he'll be in high school and I'll have 2 high schoolers.

For me, this was the perfect Mother's day weekend.  How was yours?  Hopefully you spent time with your loved ones.

    So happy you had the perfect weekend.
    Happy Mother's Day to you!
    Pug hugs :)

  2. oh but that takes me back. My boys played ball for several years...always a treat to watch them. Happy Mother's Day to you!

  3. Now THAT sounds like a really delightful Mother's Day weekend (really and truly!) Like I said, I miss my son's baseball days....he only pitched a few times; otherwise was the first baseman or catcher.....ahhh the good ol' days. Today he was in the "shop" taking an engine out of a buddy's car and putting a new one in. Not as much fun to watch (even if he let me) as baseball. Baseball I at least understood! Happy new week ahead! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. Aww, that was a sweet surprise. Oh yes, tournament days. I remember them well.

  5. What a nice gesture for the moms.Enjoy these days, they pass too quickly. Glad you had a wonderful day.(week end)

  6. Always so proud to see the kids enjoying their games! Happy for you!

  7. I'm glad you enjoyed your mother's day so much. I enjoyed mine too. We went to a Portuguese restaurant on Saturday evening, my boys made breakfast for me on Sunday and in the afternoon we all went to the soccer game. We don't have baseball, we have soccer :-). Soccer is a big thing here!
