The Saturday before Mother's Day I came down with Strep Throat. I had some suspicion for a few days, so with a big week ahead of us I went to the doctor and sure enough that's what it was. We had plans on Mother's Day to go to Church in Nashville where Freddy T was preaching and then spend the day at the zoo with his family. I was looking forward to this day out, but the way I felt caused me to stay home with Parker and spend the day with my side of the family, which was special for me. Freddy T. and the big kids had a great day, lots of fun with cousins and family. When I put Lillie to bed later that night she said "This was the worse Mother's Day of my entire life! I didn't spend anytime with you and I'm so sad." It was pitiful.
I decided I needed to take Lillie on a Mommy Date to make up for the disappointing day. So we bought tickets to her friend Pipers dance recital for Tuesday night.
I asked Lillie if she wanted a necklace or bracelet. She came back out with pink glasses instead and said she was ready to go.
We went to dinner. She insisted I get a picture with her and her Strawberry Lemonade.
She got cold so moved to my side of the booth. Then we decided to take a few pictures together. The waitress walked up on us taking this one.

Flowers for Piper afterwards.
Such a fun night with Lillie!
