Mother's Day

First I must say that being together is the best Mother's Day gift I could have ever received.  The thought of being apart on Mother's Day made me cringe (though part of me thought it should get me some REALLY good gifts).

On Saturday we went to the neighborhood pool for the first time.  We played for two hours and met some friends there.  It was great.  I love this neighborhood!  On our walk back home I asked Ryan if he needed to go out with the kids to do some Mother's Day shopping.  When we arrived back he decided he would take the kids out to do a bit of shopping.  When they came home we went to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner.

I woke up a bit later than everyone else on Sunday morning.  Well, maybe I was up before some of them but I didn't roll out of bed until they were awake.  There were cards and gifts on the table for me.  Nathan's card was priceless...I will type it here.

Dear mom,
I am glad this happy day is here.
I will not tell secrets to Audrey.  I will
clean up my own mess and not complain.  I love
you on this happy day and evrey day.  Can I 
drive to cherch today?  Can we go for a nacher walk
today?  Can I cook today?  Do you like this speshal day
? From Nathan,

Nathan did make toast for me.  We decided he could only drive 25 mph to church and we would drive back.  We did not take the nature walk but will probably do that this coming Saturday.  

This was also my first Sunday at our new church branch.  It was nice to finally be here and start putting faces together with names.  Ryan and I were also interviewed by a member of the branch presidency and I was given a calling as Primary President.  Way to welcome me to the branch, hey.

I will be posting some older posts before too long and pictures.  We have been here for one week and almost everything is set up.  I still have to go through the garage so we can fit both vehicles in there but that should be done in the next week or two.  Today is laundry day.  And I should also clean the kids toilet as Nathan is pretty gross and it is different now that he has to share with the girls...
