Our new spot

I know it is kinda late, but Happy Mothers Day to all you moms out there.  I hope that you had a wonderful day and got to spend it just how you wanted.  I know I did.  Some moms like breakfast in bed or a nice dinner.  Maybe chocolates and flowers.  Me, I like just spending time with my boys doing what ever it is that makes them happy, because that's what makes me happy.

I spent the morning grocery shopping.  Something I actually love doing.  And the boys came along.  Anthony was upset because I went.  He wanted to buy me flowers and surprise me.   But since I spoiled it, he snuck around the corner and met me by the banana with a beautiful bouquet.  Sweet boy.  

His birthday was the following day and since he would be in school, we decided to give him his present Sunday.  We told him we were going bike riding and hid his new bike in the back when he wasn't looking.  Then told him to get the bikes out.  Don't you know he was more concerned about the brakes on the bike than the bike itself.  Hes a hard one to impress.  Got it all adjusted, took off the training wheels and he was off.  

After lots of peddling and then playing on the playground, we decided it was the dogs turn to play.  And the park just opened its own dog park a few months back.  Chico has never been to a dog park so we were hoping no one was there.  Sure enough we had the whole place to ourselves.  I think he peed on every tree there was.  He wasn't to sure of the water fountains though, so I will have to remember to bring his water pouch next time.  Its all fenced it, and there is a separate area for the smaller dogs.  Although I wish they had  fun things for them too.  There are water fountains and misters.  Lots of shade trees. Its nice and its close to home!  And next time we will be going with the newest addition.  We are going to be fostering a Great Dane here shortly.  One big dog and one small dog.  That's how we roll.  I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time at the dog park.  Looks like fun right?!
