Happy Mother's Day!

I know I'm a little late, but Happy Mother's Day anyway! My boys made sure it was an amazing day for me. In fact, in true McCuen style we celebrated for the entire weekend, not just the day. On Friday night we took Stephen's mom out to yummy Thai food for her mother's day present (really it was a present for all of us because the food was SO good). We then went for frozen yogurt at our favorite place, Earth Fruits Yogurt, it's a little expensive so we only go on special occasions. I forgot my camera so I don't have any pictures of that, darn.

On Saturday, Stephen drove me all the way to Salt Lake to eat at our favorite place, Les Madeleines, which I have already posted about. It was SO yummy! We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed tasty food and the beautiful day. After that we went home and had a family nap. I know that sounds boring to some but really with a 7 month old baby, any extra sleep is a blessing! We got dinner from P.F.Chang's, another place we love to eat.

On Sunday, I woke to my boys making me french toast, not just any french toast but Kneader's French Toast. It's SO tasty!!!!

Our Magnificent Breakfast!
Stephen had all my presents layed out on the table. Yes, those are Barbie clothes, I still play with dolls, people. Don't judge.
Me, all happy after breakfast and presents! (I know I look gross, it's ok though)
Will, trying Raspberries for the first time, he makes this face EVERY time he's tries something new, whether he likes it or not.
After the yummy breakfast, we got ready for church. Will was SO tired he fell asleep on our bed in his handsome suit.
Church was AMAZING! After church, I decided I needed a picture with the reason I'm a mother.
I know I look pretty tired in the last photo so after our little photo op, Stephen let me take a nap with Will while he made dinner. I have the most AMAZING husband! Our original plan was to have a BBQ picnic but it started raining right as we got home from church, so that was out. But Stephen still made some tasty steaks, roasted asparagus, rice pilaf, and corn on the cob.
After the great dinner, we tried out one of my presents, an ice cream maker, and made some raspberry and mango sorbet. It was SO good!
Thank you, my boys, for making this the best Mother's Day a girl could ask for!

And finally, a tribute to my own mom, Holly. She is the most amazing mother anyone could ask for! I wasn't the easiest child and she succeeded in not killing me or giving me up for adoption, and that makes her a saint. She always let my creativity shine and allowed me to learn from my mistakes. She is the best example of a mother, and I hope I can be half the mother she is. I love you Mommy!
