This post is for all of my favorite “moms” in the whole world
Let’s start with my wife. I asked her what she wanted to do today, and she said, “Let’s have a picnic.” So, even though it was a little chilly, and was going to start pouring down on us at any minute, we had a picnic.
Jenny, I’m just going to lay it all on the line. I love you. I’m so thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with you. It makes me smile when I see you playing with our kids. You are a wonderful mother.
Now, I can’t leave my mom out. After all, I feel that I owe a great deal of who I am to my mom. She’s the sweetest, kindest, most caring and generous person you’ll ever meet. She will help anyone, anytime, any way she possibly can. I love you, mom! Thanks for being so amazing.
I almost hit publish, when I remembered that I had a few images of my grandma playing with my kiddos that I wanted to share. Well, why not share them on Mother’s Day? Ok, here they are. And, Grandma, I’m so glad that even though you live in California, and we get to see you once a year, that you’re the first person my kids are thankful for every night before bed. I’m also thankful for all the wonderful chats we have every week. I love you and wish I could see you more just so I could hug you more often
You get the privilege of cleaning up all of their messes!
Here’s the scene I woke up to this morning…
What? 2 Ava posts in a row!?! Yep, Max was at pre-school, Jenny and Lia stayed home to nap, so I took Ava out for a few hours. If it bothers you that much, just head on over to our family blog for some recent images of the others
I asked her if she could go anywhere in the world where would she go, and she told me, “the post office!” (cue huge grin and cheesy smile). Now, I didn’t take her to the post office, but here is what went down…you know I brought my camera along
We started off with some Cinnamon Melts from McDonald’s (you’ll notice that I encourage healthy eating)
Then came Barnes & Noble to get our read on! Notice the title to the book sitting next to her (Little Miss Chatterbox), because it fits her to a T.
We ended up with a Daddy and Me book and a Tinkerbell book. Note to self: Only let Ava pick out the books to buy if you have a couple of hours to kill, she’s very indecisive
Then we headed to Independence Center for a carousel ride and to find Libby Liu’s (which closed, or moved, we couldn’t find it) so Ava could get some new bo-bo’s (her hairpieces).
I love you and your cute, cheesy grin. Please stay young forever. Please. I don’t want you to grow up.
