"a penny for your thoughts, a quarter for the call and all of your mama's love." (the sunday version)
sunday: we drove five hours from plano to san angelo after church to surprise landon's mom for mother's day. both landon and matt (his brother) talked to delana earlier in the day on sunday, and she was not hiding that she was totally bummed that "her babies" weren't coming for mother's day. they just played along. funny: landon said he didn't call her until after church because he couldn't lie to her (by saying he wasn't coming) while he was at church. such a good boy.
the drive was nice. it was doc's first road trip. he is definitely a road trip dog. such a good boy. we made it to san angelo (mike's house) at about 7 p.m. when we walked in the door, i was first, delana looked at me for a second like she didn't recognize me. then she came rushing over, crying on my shoulder. her crying made david cry, which made landon cry. bunch of softies, i'll tell ya what. me? no. i didn't cry.
so we hung out. delana also received a beautiful (albeit slightly wilted) bouquet from central market. some of the flowers seen here. and these pretty little blue bowls from pier 1. she was quite happy.
and i bet you're wondering about my poor dog being dressed up like a doll.
landon's granna (his dad's mom) bought him this teeny red and white shirt (for the odessa high broncos) and had No. 72 (david's high school football number) put on the front and "henry" put on the back for landon when he was a baby. we put it on doc and it fits. the thing is so little it only fits around landon's bicep now. delana wouldn't let me take if for doc. but she did say i could have it when i have a real baby. i argued. doc IS a real baby! i lost.
mother's day surprise mission.....a success.
