Happy Mother’s Day!!
Spring has sprung so it’s the time of year to honor mom with some flowers. Well I did that last year. I got her a clematis and have been updated it is doing really well! yay! Well instead of giving her a flower I thought it would be better to take her to the flowers. I have always wanted to go to the Lilac Festival at Arnold Arboretum so we decided a Boston visit was in order and we would go there.
My Mom and Nanny came up for the weekend!!! They came up on Saturday afternoon to our place so we could catch up awhile it rained nd Nanny could see our apartment. We enjoyed some reminiscing about movies, vacations, and my grandpa. Nanny has a crazy cat (really crazy) so liked the calm rabbits, esp when Jack would come out for raisins. The four of us then went out to a place called Bamboo for some Thai food. Price and I took my mom here a few years ago and she thought that Nanny would like it so we went back. This is one of our favorite places here since the food is so good and the service is always on point. We ordered chicken satays and fresh spring rolls for appetizers. It was so cute that Nanny said she would have to tell her friends that she tried Thai food. Next I have to get her on the T 🙂
Today we went to the Lilac Festival at Arnold Arboretum. We saw their beautiful collection of blooming lilacs. It was nice to walk in the arboretum while enjoying the flowering and watching the musical and dancing performances. Poor Nanny had her allergies flare up so she left sneezing.
I’m so glad that my Mom got to come up with her mom for the weekend. It was nice to take mom to a place that she liked and give Nanny a new type of food to try. Walking through the arboretum to so much fun was we talked about Boston, how the dogs would love it up here, and taking photos of all the lilacs. I’ll see them again next weekend for a day trip down to CT and then just 2 more weeks until graduation. Can’t wait!!

Thank you so much for an awesome mother’s day. It was such a wonderful treat, thank you for your usual thoughtfulness, the flower show was beautiful. The lilacs were breathtaking.
Kudos to you for having your grandmother try Thai food. She loved it.
It was great getting to relax at your apartment with munchies and wine. Nanny and I could not have had a better time kicking back and laughing with you and Price.
It was such much fun to finish planning out the graduation party. It is going to be awesome !!!!
Thank you again for a wonderful mother’s day.
