Mother's Day at Monticello

I am pretty much the luckiest mama alive. I woke up to breakfast in bed, homemade cards and gifts, and uninterrupted time reading the Post. Then we all went to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Our kids were so well-behaved that our tour guide had the rest of the group clap for them, so I didn't think the day could get better, but it did! Champagne lunch/dinner (lunner?)!

Look on the back of a nickel. Recognize it?

The gardens were by far my favorite.


My other favorite thing. A wine delivery dumbwaiter.

Double Yum.

Sounds great. Really. Went to marcies. Then went shopping with her and Kenzie. Kenzie got stuck in a dress. Then went home and made dinner for the fam. Anthony didn't want to eat with me. Then I helped mark clean the kitchen. The best part was shopping with my sissie and niece!
