Mother's day weekend re-cap

Son was in a track meet on Saturday. It was his first time running against other people--one of those kind where we signed him up at the Parks & Rec department and then he showed up and ran when they called his events. He came in next to last on both races, but I thought he did great anyway. It's hard to know what to expect when you've never done it before.
The farmer's market opened Saturday so we went there as well. We didn't get much--just some jam, but we go pretty much every Saturday when they're open.
We also went out to dinner on Saturday night. I decided that I would rather have a nice Mother's Day dinner on Saturday night than go to the brunch buffet that we usually do on Sunday morning (not much there I care to eat since changing the way I eat). So we went to Prasai--excellent Thai food.
Sunday morning, I nipped the tops off my mint plants and had mint tea--that's it above. Very nice.
Daughter made me a card, a magnet, and a key chain. Son made me the Lego creation, below. Look hard--it says "I [heart] MOM" vertically. I thought it was very creative!
Then, in the evening, we went over to my folks for strawberry shortcake. I brought Soyatoo whipped topping. I just had strawberries with the whipped topping on them. I couldn't find the packaging on the cakes (Mom got them at Costco) but I'm pretty sure they would have had eggs in them at least.
Well, that was my Mother's Day. I hope every mother had a great day.
Ciao for now.
