It's My Children's Mother's Day!

Yes, it is, because it is my birthday today. And what a good time to rejoin Chris' Mommy Moments meme as the theme is Mother's Day 2011.
As some of you knew already, I'm a country away from my family since April so I didn't get to celebrate Mother's Day with my children physically but we did virtually. We skype and exchange messages almost everyday and that's how they greeted me on that day. My Naomi sent her greetings through her blog, my Zoe sent me party smileys online, while my Ben sent me his greetings thru a text message. I guess I would be expecting another virtual greetings again. My DH already sent his sweet message right after the midnight. Here's what greeted me via Skype at 4am this morning, with all the "in-love" smileys surrounding the message.
I thanked God for you and having you as my wife, partner, and friend. May the Father continue to lead you to a deeper and closer walk with Him. May He grant the desires of your heart. Love, Z [0:30:20] 
On my last birthday, I was also away from home but my husband was with me, and we get to celebrate it in Disneyland.

So, for this year, we made sure that we celebrate together with the kids before I left by going back to our favorite local Disneyland.
They enjoyed all the rides.

 They went to the Giant's House again,

 posed with princesses,

  and had a blast going back and forth, riding the Super Splash where you ride in a rubber boat and have a big drop from many feet high down with a big splash. This is how Naomi (in yellow) and Zoe (following behind) got all wet even with the raincoat on.

 And here's my big boy who refused to wear a coat and brought with him clothes to get wet. 

As for me, I enjoyed watching them. 
Well, I went to some rides, too, like this one in a cable car with my son. 
But nothing gets you really high as mother than seeing your children having all the fun.
