Best Mother's Day Yet

Were my exact words yesterday.
I couldn't have imagined a better way to spend it.
We started out with the Mother's Day Run and Walk at Foote Field.

Not only were we joined by team Track and Shield {no picture opportunity this time, sorry}, we were also surrounded by friends and family.
Jeff walked with our Moms, the kids, Auntie Brie and Uncle Tim and my Dad dragged me along ran with me.

Cecile brought her Mom and sister and Jay and Chloe's kids made it a real family gathering.
We didn't make the little legs race so Fiona and I did our own.

In lieu of the traditional brunch we brought along a picnic and put our blankets under a tree outside the field.

And even a small hill perfect for toddler rolling.

 Remember when rolling down a hill made you this happy?
Maybe it still would, I mean how often do we even try this anymore?
All I know is that this day gave me this much joy.
Becoming a Mom has been amazing and beautiful, indescribably so.
But the real fun has only just begun.
I love finding these little traditions that will carry on for years to come.
Providing the other Moms are on board that is, we couldn't celebrate without you.
Finally, thank you Heather for being the best Mother-in-law a girl could ask for.
Mom, you wrote yesterday that I am an amazing mother.
Thank you, that means the world.
I just hope you realize that's all on you.
Love you.

  1. Happy Mother's Day!

    Looks like you had such a lovely day. Your babes are adorable. (I still like to throw caution to the wind and roll down a hill every once and a while).

    Wishing you a wonderful week!
    xoxo

  2. We applaud the ones ladies who opt to live at domestic and work at home moms. our kids are crying for a person to be at domestic and what higher way could mom make contributions to supporting to provide for the own family then being a work at home mother? Visit Here
