Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mummies out there! Its a crazy day Mothers Day, all this hype, every day is really Mothers Day! I had a coffee in bed this morning and the girls brought me in their pressies. I told Daz not to go crazy, take them to the $2 shop and let them pick out something all by themselves, so........ I scored a boomerang from Grace (Hey, it is pink!) and a lovely silver tiara with Princess written on it from Milly! Grace also gave me the above dough figure which is me, that she made at kindy. I've always admired my small dainty flat ears but here she has given me big Prince Charles ones! Its so cute though, I'm going to frame it.

We spent the day at the zoo, just the four of us. Becoming bit of a yearly tradition as we also went last year on Mothers Day. It was a great day as it was a cool and overcast 22, so all the animals were moving! The monkeys were going crazy, the crocodile moved, in all my trips to the zoo, never seen him budge! The giraffe's and zebra's were grazing and the giant turtle doing laps of his enclosure. It was great. Here's a shot of me and the girls going down the slide, having a break half way through the day. I am so lucky to have them in my life, happy and healthy munchkins they are, I am blessed. My Mum is about to come down for Chinese takeaway for tea, so that tops off a perfect day! Happy Mothers Day!

Love the dough portrait! Remember to keep it perfectly dry otherwise it will go soft (bit like us after having kids, I guess!)
