A Year in the Making, day 247

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

I had a wonderful day. First, my husband made me a crab omelet for breakfast:

Then, the munchkin gave me the mother's day card she made in computer lab. Here's the exact way it's typed:

der mom I love you I hop you had a gerat tim at werk hapermunderays [supposed to be happy mother's day, I'm told] i love you fum gwen ps you are a gat momy ps you are a gat mom i like the thing

And there are little pictures on it of a skunk, a rabbit, and a toad.

Afterwards, we headed out to the beach to enjoy the gorgeous weather:

I took a few pictures of the plants:

I tried to catch a crow in flight, and this is the best I managed (tricky little buggers!):

The husband and the munchkin started a sandcastle:

I hid from the evil yellow hurtie thing while they played:

And then a big hole was done and the munchkin decided she needed to bury her feet:

Where's the feet?

The husband discovered that she was now just the right height:

We stopped for beverages and cuteness ensued:


Came home and I made a new necklace, and finally added a clasp onto a piece I made weeks ago:

Upcycled Brass, Copper, and Amber Glass Necklace with Vintage Parts

Amber Glass Pendant strung with Peridot and Freshwater Pearls on Brass

Then I went to go see Kick Ass, which kicked ass.

And now the husband is making shrimp kabobs for dinner and I am sipping a glass of white wine while typing this all up. It's been a good day.
