Descanso Garden // Off-the-Shoulder Top

We had an unexpected and fun twist on this last Mother’s Day weekend (we do our major celebrating on Saturday, usually, to avoid restaurant crowds, delays, and all such things — but it’s still my special day, and I like it like that!).

While we were enjoying a family dim-sum brunch, Red Bear got an invitation to a “play date” with one of his best buddies ever who now goes to a different school.   I am a good mom (of course, so I let him go play with his buddy, and suddenly my husband and I had some free time, so we decided to make a quick visit to the famous Descanso Garden, a beautiful public garden not too far away.   We had talked about going there often before, but hadn’t made it there yet — partly because it’s hard to get Red Bear excited about strolling around plants, no matter how beautiful!  So this was out big chance!

It was a beautiful day with perfect weather, and it was a really nice way to celebrate Mother’s Day for me.  Just think about it, moms — no restless 8-year old around, but only beautiful things — and Red Bear thought he got the best of it, because he had a blast with his pal for a few hours.  Not bad, right?   It was a real win-win Mother’s Day!

In Chinese: 母亲节这天我们过得很不寻常,其实我们一般母亲节都提前一天过,因为想避免餐馆高峰人群什么的。

这天我们去吃了点心早餐,接着RB就接到他同学的邀请,说让去同学家玩,我这种好妈妈当然会说同意啦。于是没有了RB,我和我先生去了超著名的Descanso花园逛了逛了,以前就听说过这花园很漂亮,也一直想去看看,这回终于在母亲节这天了了心愿。没有RB在一起逛花园,虽说安静了很多,可是他这种男孩子对花花草草什么的还是不懂欣赏。没有他,我们玩得更舒心,哈哈,所以说啊,母亲节这天不用操心顽皮小朋友倒也算是个快乐的母亲节吧!
