A day I looked forward to for years to celebrate my mom but also to be celebrated :) We started the day at church, then in my typical mom style asked the kids if they wanted a happy meal, so we had McDonald's for lunch :) (Nathan took me out to eat at Olive Garden a few days earlier to celebrate also) Ryan is still not doing great in restaurants, so it is all to go orders for us for now. We went home and Ryan napped and I cleaned the house.
Then once Ryan woke up we met my mom at the park so my kids could play and my brother and I could give her gifts. We had cupcakes and fruit and dip and cookie cake and talked and played frisbee. It was nice :)
I always take a picture with my kids in front of the same tree in the yard at my house. I like to see how they change year to year and make comparison shots :)
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there - whether it be naturally, adoption, foster, or to the 4 legged furry kind! If you are struggling to become a mother, do not give up. It is hard and nothing anyone can say will change that. Just pray. And don't give up. And pray some more! I will be praying for you...
