I hope you all had a great weekend celebrating with the important women in your lives. We had a fun and relaxing weekend with both Marc’s Family on Saturday and my family on Sunday.
Our Mother’s Day celebrations were so laid back and stress free which is exactly what I wanted.
Early Saturday morning we headed up to Rhode Island. Our drive was a breeze and we were there in no time. We spent the day hanging out at Marc’s parents house and we also got to see Marc’s sister, her husband and our niece Natalie.
Ava and Natalie played for hours and hung out. It’s so cute watching them follow each other and chase each other around. Ava passed out and was asleep by 7:15pm.
She woke us up rather early Sunday morning with her new wake up time of 5:15am. (can’t say I am a fan of that early time on weekends!) I woke up to a lovely breakfast made by Marc.
A delicious Fritatta with spinach, mushrooms & tomato. He clearly knows I love breakfast, and it was a lovely surprise to wake up to.
Shortly after we headed back to Greenwich to spend the day BBQ’n and hanging out with my family.
We sat on the deck and ate some more delicious food.
I made a corn & bean salad, my mom made some eggplant dip and we also had some hummus and crackers.
I think I ate too much of the appetizers because I wasn’t hungry for the grilled food.
I had a small piece of BBQ Grilled Chicken and a scoop of potato salad.
We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening just hanging out. I took Ava for a long walk and we soaked up some sun on my parents deck! It was overall a lovely weekend.
This is a flashback picture from this time last year on Mother’s Day. Can you believe how small Ava was??
What did you do for Mother’s Day?
Do you use your grill a lot this time of year?
