Happy Mother’s Day (yesterday)

Posted on May 11th, 2009 in coolness, family, holiday, photography, Random thoughts, wife by g-man || 14 Comments

For all of you mothers who I failed to acknowledge yesterday, Happy Mother’s Day!!!

I honored my wife by grilling burgers, putting away laundry, making the bed and with a card. I also took her, my other favorite mother (Esmerelda) and her mom out to dinner. It was a very nice day. The kids sang in church, and our girls promised to help in a number of areas so that mommy could have a nice relaxing day.

Saturday I spent the morning with my younger son at his Young Marine encampment at a local National Guard post. While I was there they did the leadership training course (a set of 8 obstacles to overcome with limited resources). It was pretty cool to watch the young men and women overcome and accomplish these tasks.

    No I didn’t get to play, just took pictures. It is an interesting program to be sure.

    You’re welcome.

    The Young Marines program looks like a good one. SuperDad is planning to go on a Cub Scout campout next weekend with SnakeMaster. We are happy campers, but I don’t know how he will do with the Cub Scout format. My dh was never a scout. It might just drive him crazy.

    Good job on taking care of business on Mother’s Day! :)

    PS: I agree with Mackey!

    It is a good program for cultivating discipline and leadership. We have some Scout friends and on the last trip I heard about they got to make a catapult and got to fling stuff for distance. That was pretty cool. Good luck to SD and SM.

    I do what I can ;)

    A good hubby and a good friend! :-D Thanks again. I was in no mood to treat MY mother to dinner.

    I do try, and you are more than welcome.

    Yeah, I wasn’t sure if you would invite her to come too or not. It was 50/50 in my book.
