My First Mother's Day

















Mother's Day Weekend started on Friday morning. Poata has a new schedule with his job where he works 10 hours a day instead of 8 and now he has Fridays off because he makes 40 hours by Thursday. It's way cool! So Friday morning instead of Luka and I going on our alligator's walk just the two of us, we had daddy come along too! And we stayed a while and some of our friends happened to be there too! And that means there were babies! Since allll of my friends have babies! Jen an old co-worker of mine was there with her 7 week old little baby girl that I haven't gotten a chance to meet yet so it was great to see her! Next up on our Mother's Day weekend was our ward's Samoan Sunday school class's Mother's Day dinner. It was surprisingly super fun, I think due to the fact that Luka was a crazy party animal! He was singing and dancing out of control! He busted all these new moves he had never done before! He was the life of the party! Poata was also in heaven because they served crab and shrimp and I was in heaven because they had every single flavor of Ted's Bakery pie, my flavor of choice being chocolate haupia of course. Saturday started off with a shopping trip to get my mom a gift and then to the grocery store to get all the ingredients to make a special treat for her. After that we had a kids rager to go to! It was the coolest thing I have ever been to! ok well the coolest kids thing that I have ever been to! It was a rock and roll/ reggae party especially for little toddlers! There were live bands playing rock and roll and reggae lullabies and numbers and colors songs. There were at least 50 kids there rocking out. There was even a little baby drum set for the kids to play on while the band was playing. It was a pot luck so I made cookie monster cupcakes again and they were a big hit with the kids! So after the party we went home and I started making my mom's mother's day cake. It was a 6 layer rainbow cake! Each layer was a different flavor, red-strawberry orange-orange yellow-lemon green-kiwi blue-blueberry purple-grape. The frosting was a lemon cream cheese frosting. My mom is obsessed with rainbows, she has been since her mom (my oma-grandma) died and thinks it's my grandma's way of saying hi. yeah she is a little crazy. But anyways I figured for mothers day it was perfect! My mom loved it!! So Sunday she came over and cut her cake and was thrilled! Then we headed to the beach! She took Luka along with them and Poata and I kayaked to the beach and met them there. It was so beautiful out and super clear! We saw tons of turtles! We brought some snacks with us to the beach and stayed all day! Then we went home and had another collaboration dinner. My mom made pasta salad, ceasar salad and furikake ahi and I made tofu, broccoli and asparagus stir fry and rice. Everything was super good! Mother's day may be my new favorite holiday! Poata is such an amazing husband and always makes me feel special and appreciated!
