This past Sunday was Mother's Day and my oldest son Chris sure did give me a wonderful weekend. It started Saturday morning when the doorbell rang. It was a florist delivering the most beautiful flowers from Chris and Kristi!
Sunday Chris picked me up for a special mother and son day out in Kansas City. He has done this for the past several Mother's Days and I've come to really look forward to it. We spent the day on The Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. It is a popular area of the city designed after Seville, Spain which is our sister city. There are many excellent restaurants and unique shops and you can easily spend a day just walking around. We went to Cooper's Hawk Restaurant and Winery and enjoyed a delicious meal. We then enjoyed walking around the area and of course we had to visit the huge three story book store there. We finished the day off at one of the coffee shops. More than anything I enjoyed simply being able to spend time with my son and visit and catch up on everything with him. I would like to have gotten more pictures of the area but it was a cloudy day and not the best for taking pictures. I did get one of a smaller fountain, Neptune although the picture is not the best.
Kansas City is known for its many fountains.
Despite it being a cloudy and cool day we really did have a great time! I feel blessed to have two wonderful sons. I did not see Sean, my younger son but he did call me and we had a nice, long phone conversation. I hope everyone here had a wonderful Mother's Day!
