weekend adventures: mother's day

I guess I spoke a bit too soon about the hot weather being passed, as it’s been quite warm again this week.  So, when Ryan asked me what I’d like to do to celebrate mother’s day, I immediately knew I wanted to go swimming.

So, after a delicious breakfast and some adorable and hilarious handmade cards from the girls, we rented a motorbike for the day and set off in search of a good swimming spot.  We took the road heading north out of town that follows the river and just kept our eyes open.  We didn’t have much of a plan, but hoped we’d find somewhere to cool off and enjoy the picnic lunch we’d bought at the market.

Excuse the blurry phone pics.  I didn’t bring my camera along this time.

What did you do for Mother’s Day?

  1. Looks like you had a lovely Mother’s Day! We’ve forgotten what heat is like. It was 39 yesterday morning. Can’t wait to see you! Please leave the steamy sticky weather behind when you come. 😀


  2. So glad you are able to get out and about to enjoy yourselves. Happy Mother’s Day a week late, but it looked like you had a great time…Especially with those little girls 🙂
