Mother's Day

Hi there & happy Monday!

I hope all the Moms out there enjoyed their Mother's Day holiday. Sal and I spent the weekend in St. Petersburg with our Moms and families. We took Sal's Mom out for breakfast, then later brought Buddy & Aruba over for a visit (they were obviously very interested in something in the yard next door):
We also took my Mom out to eat, to one of our fave places, The Sea Porch Cafe at that iconic pink palace, the Don CeSar Beach Resort. We enjoyed a late breakfast al fresco since the weather was absolutely gorgeous, picture perfect ... temp in the mid-80s, tons of bright sunshine & blue skies. Afterwards we walked along St. Pete Beach, so pleasant.
Even I got in on the Mother's Day action ... I am a Dog Mom after all, right? [notice my T-shirt, LOL]
The best part of the celebrations for me, though, was that Buddy was well enough to travel and be part of the Mother's Day fun, despite having his first chemotherapy treatment last Thursday. Both "grandmas" were excited to see their "grand dogs" and to celebrate Buddy's recovery. He seemed to feel quite good all weekend, soaking in all the attention and pampering, with the only apparent chemo side effect being a finicky appetite. Today he had to rest from all the fun!
Tomorrow is a really special day for me and Sal. Curious? I'll be back with the details ...

Have a great week,
