SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Moms were celebrated Sunday at a special brunch for the wives of deployed Camp Pendleton Marines.
The 4th Annual Mother's Day Brunch was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Carlsbad.
Kids were treated to games and crafts while the mother's received a free brunch, flowers and gifts.
The brunch meant so much to the mothers who didn't think they'd get to celebrate this year.
"I didn't think we'd be able to do anything for Mother's Day, being that the husband's gone. This was a nice surprise to come here," said Military wife Krystal Perkins.
Organizers say Sunday was extra-special for some of the moms, a group of Marines are expected home tomorrow and some will meet their babies for the first time.
