My son requested an escape room party for his 10th birthday, so I quickly agreed knowing that our city is full of these fun little amusements; unfortunately, I couldn’t locate a room that seemed age appropriate so I went from what would have been an easy outing to a full-commitment, decked out ancient Egyptian Lost Mummy tomb in our home office.
I hope all you mamas out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I celebrated all weekend and across two states, spending time with my own Mom and family in Oklahoma and celebrating the day with my son and husband back in Missouri. It was a lot of driving, but I truly had a couple of great days.
The Mother/Daughter Banquet at Verdigris FBC was a lot of fun. The decorations were adorable, the food was good and the giveaways were awesome! I came home with the new “Magnolia Table” cookbook.
Sunday started out with a Weight Watchers conscious breakfast casserole, prepared the night before by my husband. I’ll share that recipe with y’all later this week, because it was really yummy (thankfully there were leftovers for this morning’s breakfast). I also received some wonderful cards, flowers and decorated cookies from my husband and son. My big surprise gift was a new Canon Rebel T6i camera — just what I always wanted! I immediately thought it was a pretty lavish gift for Mother’s Day but hubby reassured me that it was also my fifteen-year anniversary gift, which happens later this month, so I graciously accepted. Like I was going to make him send it back. . . *grin*
I charged the camera battery while we were at church and my afternoon was filled with lots of photo ops and fun, so I’m sharing a few of my favorite moments through the lens of my new weapon.
This was my first subject through the lens of my new Mother’s Day camera. I’m digging the detail, even if grapes aren’t so exciting.
This photo of my son and his imagination was taken through the Mother’s Day flowers on our dining room table.
We let the girls do some serious free ranging this afternoon. Hens happy. Bugs Beware.
Our son doesn’t have a dog, but chickens can be a pretty good substitute.
