Mother's Day

I hate getting behind because then I don't know where to start to catch up.

My mother came to spend three weeks with us. It's so nice to have her here! We've enjoyed hanging out at home watching all of the bird families in the backyard, as well as having some adventures elswhere.

We had Mother's Day plans of church and picnic and downtown arts festival, but Rosie and Ethan got sick last Friday while we were at a birthday party. Saturday Rose was feeling better, but still running a fever. Ethan took a more off and on approach to feeling better. We decided to stay home Sunday morning. We had donuts for breakfast, then hung out and ate lunch at home too. But by the afternoon, we decided to try a short trip to a nearby lake - it was such a beautiful day, it was hard to resist. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Bella couldn't get enough of the geese, and the children enjoyed wading too. I enjoyed taking pictures of them enjoying it. :^) Then we stopped for ice cream, which proved to be a bit too much for Ethan, but he was still glad we went.

What a great way to spend Mother's Day. The pictures are wonderful...the kids sure have grown a lot since we first "met."
