My day didn't begin with breakfast in bed (because Tim & I see it like this - Who wants to eat IN bed? With crumbs going everywhere? Holding a tray tipsy on your legs with no back support? No, thank you.).
I awoke when my 4-year-old climbed out of bed and tumbled out into the main RV living area, whispering to Tim that it was time for the Mother's Day surprise. I smiled as I heard the dishes rattling and smelled the warm cinnamon bread floating through our small living space.
About an hour later, my 2-year-old and I stretched awake. My 4-year-old tugged at my hand and led me to the dining room table. "Surprise!" she yelled, her eyes sparkling. The table was set. Honeydew melon in circles, homemade bread (still hot!), and real butter.
At 10, we walked down to the chapel here at the campground for a service. After the opening hymns, the pastor's wife called the children forward for a special treat. "The Children" she was referring to were our two girls. There were no other children in the building! She asked the girls to sing "Jesus Loves Me" and our 4-year-old totally did - with the microphone and all!
In the afternoon, we went hiking with another on-the-road family and then had Italian Ice in the North Carolina sunshine.
Afterward, Tim took the girls out by the lake to let me catch up with e-mails and I made excellent progress (only 200 e-mails left in there tonight!).
Do you like breakfast in bed? Yay or nay?
