I know I’m just a tad late posting about this, but I had such a great mother’s day weekend that I had to share.
So, it started with a night out with my girl…our first real momma/daughter date ever. My friends & I took our daughters to see Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream. I had planned the night knowing that she may be a little young and could get a little restless, tired, etc. and fully expected to be leaving early. Boy was I wrong! She was the perfect age! So amazed by everything…completely enthralled by all the princesses and other characters. It was truly a special night for us a both!
Before the show, we all met for dinner at Lucy’s downtown. So much fun!
We got to our seats just in time for the show…perfect planning
As soon as I saw the man with the cotton candy, I had to get Sloan some since she had never had it before. I just knew she was gonna love it! Wrong. Not only did she not like it, she spit it out! Ha! So she was quite content with this…
It was a great night and a late one for us, especially since we had to get up early because we were driving to Mississippi to spend the day with my family at one of the state park/campgrounds. We got to spend the day with my mom & dad, maw-maw, aunts & uncles, some cousins & their kids, and my brothers & families too. The kids were excited to go “camping” (even if it was just for the day) because they LOVE to be outside.
Big Pop took them on their first boat ride. A little unsure at first, but ended up loving it. I see a lot of boat rides in their future, especially with daddy and Grandaddy since they are the big fishers!
Another great day with the fam!
Sunday, we went to church and then took a loooooong nap after lunch – one of my MOST favorite things to do on Sundays. Then Nick gave me one of the best presents by taking the kids out of the house for a couple of hours so I could get some housework done. Yep, I loved every minute of it! Nothing like cleaning with the music cranked up and no kids under your feet
Mother’s day is always a special day for me and a sweet reminder of how far we have come and how blessed I am. I love this little life of mine.
P.S. This weekend will be a daddy weekend, especially since his birthday falls on Father’s day this year. How special is that?!?
