Ohhh my goodness, what a glorious weekend. I just adore spring- we *live* outside, playing as a family. I thought last Spring could not be topped (maternity leave, new baby, adorable 2 year old)- but this Spring is definitely just as perfect.
Then Sunday was Mother's Day. Moms get 2 days a year- Mother's Day and their birthday. Mother's Day is 100x more special to me than my birthday. Birthdays are about the old me. A kid with toys, a teenager and clothes, a drunk college student, etc. But I cherish being a mom waaaayyy more than anything else. So bring on the special treatment, Mother's Day!
I just wanted to have a normal 'ole Sunday- but soak it up more than usual. Let Casey worry about everything. Manage it all. Do all of the work. (Not that he doesn't do a TON already- but I didn't want to lift a finger. Not one!)
|After breakfast we threw our bathing suits on and headed to the backyard!|
|Eeeeeee! Now that the water isn't so cold each weekend- Dax is really embracing this outdoor bathtub thing!|
|Casey grilled hamburgers and hot dogs!|
|Ada only ate chips...|
|Dax testing out his dare-devil tendencies... he crawled out of the pool onto that chair. That's where I put a stop to things.|
|Casey put a few more screws in the playhouse so it'd be easier to move around the yard (without it coming apart)- Ada helped. :)|
|Turning into a fish in front of my eyes. Or, more like a salamander. That slithers backwards.|
|Petting Murphy. Poor dog- it consisted more of slapping and fur pulling...|
|Pushing Ada's pink stroller around.|
|Wearing his Sweetish Baby Mother's Day shirt!!!! Eating at Fajita Willie's for dinner- another weekend must!|
And, Happy Mother's Day to all of our mothers and grandmothers, too! MiMi, Grams, Honey, MorMor!
