Mother's Day Fun at...

My Mother's Day weekend started off with a gift delivery and phone call with my son and "daughter in law to be"  :o)   Sure wish they could have been here for the weekend...
  Then my daughter planned a  Leslie Knope themed weekend for me.  We had a waffle dinner while watching season 4 of Parks and Rec!  LOL!  
I had a great time at Disneyland and California Adventure on Mother's Day, no lines. This year not many people were there, although we did see Stevie Wonder and family! :o)
Hope you all had a nice relaxing Mother's Day weekend!!
