I was blessed to have a very special Mother’s Day. It actually started early when I received a flower delivery from my oldest son Chris and my daughter-in-law Kristi on Friday. Chris and I have a tradition of just the two of us spending Mother's Day together usually in Kansas City and often at the Plaza. The Plaza is a popular shopping and dining area designed in the style of Seville, Spain. Because of his busy work schedule, I don’t get to spend a lot of time with Chris so having this one-on-one time on Mother’s Day really means a lot.
We went to Cooper’s Hawk, which is a three-level winery and restaurant for our lunch. In fact, we went there last Mother’s Day too and enjoyed it so much we decided to go back this year. They served a complimentary glass of champagne to all the mothers dining there which was an unexpected treat.
After lunch, we enjoyed walking around the Plaza checking out the shops and just enjoying the day. Although it was overcast, it was one of the first days that were warm enough to not need a coat.
My Mother’s Day did not end Sunday because on Monday my other son, Sean came over to spend some time with us and then took both Tom and I out to dinner. After dinner, he also treated us to frozen custard at a local custard shop. I feel so fortunate to have two such wonderful sons!
