My Perfect Mother's Day

It started out with my favorite breakfast: Two Egg McMuffins and a big fountain pop. From there, Bob and Thomas went to work.

As the day progressed, we got hungry. Thomas made chocolate chip muffins all by himself -- a double batch to boot.

We had a picnic in the yard. This kid melts my heart.

The day got hot, so Thomas decided to run through the sprinkler.

The boys finished the skeleton of the fence. All three of us put the Thompson's water sealer/stain on.

Today after work, Bob and Thomas (and me, too) set out to work again.

They got all the way done with the long fence wall. I don't have a photo because I was cooking. I had to please Bob, so I made his favorite a roast (boring) beef, mashed potatoes and gravy. We'll get the rest up Wednesday because we're busy all afternoon and evening tomorrow.

Let me just say that aside from Thomas himself, this is the BEST Mother's Day/Birthday gift I have ever received. Ever. Privacy, ahhh. The only thing that could surpass it would be if we won the lottery and bought a place in the country.

What a wonderful day you had! The sprinkler pictures are absolutely beautiful! And I am so HAPPY for you that you are getting the privacy fence up. Hang a little plant in the corner and Viola! Your patio will look like Better Homes and Gardens!
