Today, I was woken up by the sound of Lucas' little feet on our wooden floor, making his way into our room. He smiled at me and immediately asked for his favorite food, yogurt. It was a good way to start Mother's Day. Later in the morning, Lucas enjoyed playing in his new sandbox and running around the back yard. We went for brunch at Tom's place, and were joined by my sister and my niece, Kristine. It was such a beautiful day, we headed to the beach in the late afternoon -- I'm always complaining about the beaches in Miami which are littered and over-crowded...day wasn't much of an exception, but we managed a nice spot near the water and Lucas spent most of his time dodging the waves and laughing...I was loving the moment. Tom cooked a delicious pasta bolognese and we're getting ready to watch a movie...all in all, a most excellent day.
