Mother's Day

Today was a beautiful day! My momma came in town this weekend to celebrate Mother's Day with us. So we decided to celebrate today, since she has to drive back tomorrow. It was a wonderful day! 

We started the day with a trip to Springville for the Homestead Hollow Springfest, which is basically a giant craft bazaar. It was AWESOME!!! We strolled from booth to booth on the most beautiful of days. Delilah was the bell of the ball, as usual. People couldn't get over how adorable she is! She was so happy to be in her stroller. She loves to people watch like her Mommy and Daddy. After we browsed all the booths and ate lunch, we decided to stop by the little creek and take some pictures. As most of you know, getting a 10 month old to smile for the camera is pretty much impossible, but we were able to snag a few good shots. 

After the beautiful morning in Springville, we headed back to the house for Delilah's nap. It was so nice outside, I turned off the A.C. and threw open all the windows. It is so nice to air out the house. It has been so hot lately. I tried to keep the A.C. off as long as possible, but little Delilah gets over heated easily. So we had to turn it on for the first time this year on Monday. Hopefully it will stay this nice for a little while so I can keep it off. 

After Delilah's nap and afternoon snack of cheese and crackers, we decided to check out the new mega baby store, Buy Buy Baby. One word...FABULOUS! Ten times better than Babies R Us, and let me tell you I am a Babies R Us junkie. I have never seen a nicer baby store. So organized, so neat! I loved it. And the best part is they have the car seat we are going to be getting Delilah. I won't have to order it online and I have a 20% off coupon. Woohoo! If any of you have a Buy Buy Baby near you I suggest you RUN to it! It is lovely! 

After the mini shopping spree (just kidding John, we only picked up two small things), we headed out to dinner at Bonefish Grill. Our first time to this restaurant and we were very pleased indeed. The bacon wrapped sea scallops as the appetizer were delish. It was also the first time Delilah sat in a highchair at a restaurant. She was so well behaved. While we waited for her dinner of grilled chicken and steamed veggies (yes, she got her own meal), she snacked on a few Puffs and played with some toys. The table next to us was in awe of her good behavior and her ability to eat table food so well. Always the center of attention, my little one. She didn't fuss at all! I can take this kid anywhere. 

After dinner we headed back to the house with a quick side trip to Dip-n-Dots, a favorite of my Momma's. After she ran in to grab our treat we were home. Delilah had her night time bottle and now she is soundly asleep upstairs. 

I really, really, really enjoyed this day. I was worried that Mother's Day was going to pass without much of a fan fare, but I am so happy it didn't. I am so happy to be a Mother, especially to my little princess. I couldn't imagine life without her.
