Happy (Mother's/Birth) Day!
Well it just so happens that my dad's birthday falls on Mother's Day this year and since I was pregnant and vomiting a lot last year around this time, I sort of dropped the ball in doing anything for either one of them or Trav's parents either.
They understood because they are our parents and they have to.
So this year I had big plans to try to do something thoughtful. I got my kids all dressed up in coordinating outfits, waited for good afternoon light, and attempted to take some photos of their only grandchildren to send them.
Oh goodness! There was crying, drooling, pulling bows out of hair, nearly dropping the baby on the ground, and lots of laughter. I literally told Avery I would give her anything she wanted if she would just hold still and smile. Turns out its hard to bribe a 3-year-old who already basically gets anything she wants.
So Happy Mother's Day mom and Colleen, Happy Birthday dad! I love you all. Thanks for being our parents.
Some slightly out of focus, and possibly goofy photos are coming your way.
Late as usual.
(next year we'll send flowers)
