Aren't these gifts the girls painted adorable? I am so impressed my husband organized this gift AND everyone kept it secret!
Lunch was followed by our annual tradition of a Mother's Day hike. Fortunately for us, the weather was in full cooperation. Mike chose a new destination for us, the Anacortes Community Forest Lands. There seemed to be a maze of endless trails, connecting ponds created by beaver dams. Most of the hike was shadowed by the forest, so the photos do not do justice to the beautiful backdrop.

This ole' mom outlasted the kids, as here is what they looked like on the drive home...
And a shout out to our Moms, not only on Mother's Day, but every day! THANKS to them, I think we turned out alright;)
