Happy Mother’s Day!

I certainly had a very relaxing and enjoyable Mother’s Day.  First, I was awakened with breakfast in bed. Mark (with some help from the big boys) made me eggs, toast and fruit salad. Then we went to church, came home for a quick lunch, then we went to Circuit City. We bought this neat gadget:

The big boys think it’s theirs! LOL!

Then Mark made me roast beef tenderloin for dinner. He also made us two desserts: banana ice cream with chocolate swirl, and a strawberry almond cream tart. They were wonderful!!  If this new baby weighs 10 lbs it’s all his fault.

In other news, Ben and I have been on a few shopping trips without the big boys in the last couple of weekends. I have been trying out our new shopping cart seat cover, but unfortunately it is nowhere as good as Natalia’s cover at keeping him situated. He tends to lean over to the right, maybe because his little arm is on that side, and the back of this particular cover has nothing to keep him upright:

We’ll definitely have to try something else – maybe something like what Natalia has.

    I think I have two shopping cart thingeys that I got as gifts for my older son but never used them. I can see that I should keep them around in case it is hard to find one that works.
