Mother's Day surprise

The Bear and I were on our way to Coventry when I got a call from Eldest. 

"So...what're you doing?"
"We're driving to Coventry. It's on my list of 101 Things in 1001 Days, and I figured I might as well," I answered.
More silence.
"Are you on your way to visit?" (they live three hours away)
"Actually...we're here."
" my house?"

We turned around and went home to find not only Eldest, but First Son, too. The four of us went for lunch, went to a carnival, went for ice cream and had a nice time visiting. I hadn't seen Eldest Son since Christmas, so this was really special. It was a great Mother's Day.

As an added bonus, our landlord/neighbor gifted me with some lilacs cut from the tree in the back yard. It was a lovely way to start the morning.

I didn't cross Coventry off my list, but I have One Good Thing to add instead.
