So, of course, I have too much to catch up but since my memory is still fresh with Mother's Day happenings lets talk about that shall we?
What a beautiful simple and happy day with my little fam. Here's a quick recap-
My sweet, handsome hubby let me sleep in which in it of itself was a huge treat!!! Once I rolled out of bed, which was actually really only about an hour later but felt like at least a few, we had donuts and kolaches!! My fav. We then hit the ground running attempting to get ready for church. All I can say is I am so thankful our church is literally 3 blocks away or we would never make it on time. After church we attempted a pic...
Which was clearly not the best!! ha We were pushing nap time and both kids were ready for bed.
Afternoon Naps were had by everyone!!! And it was the best. What is it about Sunday naps that are so much better than any other day of the week?!
After nap we attempted a few more pictures before we went on a bike/stroller ride to get Raspas (Mexican Sno Cones) boys biked/ girls strolled.
( do you spy that sweet little fort back there? I'll try and talk about that soon, too)
Owen's looking at the camera....
Claire's looking at the camera... Kind of;)
And Mom's trying not to fall over! Ha
This was Claire's first ride in the stroller without the carseat adaptor. Although to be honest she has really only been in that a few times too. She prefers to be worn, meaning in the baby carrier at all times!
It was hot but fun. Owen ran around the little picnic tables stopping for a few bites here and there, and Claire took it all in giving us some coos and happy smiles.
We made our way back home but not without a nursing pit stop in the neighborhood park. Not something I would have been very comfortable doing with Owen but have grown quite accustomed to nursing absolutely anywhere this time around.
We finished the day with dinner on the deck picking up take out from our new favorite Doner Kepab restaurant.
Owen ended his day like this
and Claire gave me her first real giggles while I was giving her Eskimo kisses!!! Best. Gift. Ever.
It was one of my most favorite days we have had as a family of four. Just such simple and special moments with the loves of my life.
I am amazed everyday at how challenging, yet rewarding this job is. Being a Momma is a calling, it's a blessing, and it is truly sanctifying.
I hope that you had an amazing day with your loved ones as well. Mothering is about nurturing, whether that be to your own children or not, if you nurture others I pray you know you're a blessing.
Thanks for reading friends.
(Easter recap soon?!- yea, Easter happened before Mother's Day I know:)
