This Mother’s Day was such a wonderful day!!! The night before, when we had just finished tucking the kids in for the night; Mike took my hand and led me to our backyard where he surprised me with two gorgeous pink rose bushes! One is a double knockout and the other is a tropicana tea rose. They are so beautiful!! We (Mike) planted them on the hill so we can enjoy seeing them from most places in and outside 🙂 I adore roses and pink is my fave color so big points there!
After we played with the kids a bit Mike went for a Starbucks run while I fed the kids breakfast.
Later that morning we all went on the most amazing hike! Cherry blossoms filled the air with the most divine smell, birds were chirping, we even came across three cranes having a snack and got to watch them fly away! Little wild flowers lined our path and we spotted some tadpoles in a creek. We stopped at a park for the kids to play and for a little snack ourselves before finishing up our hike. The sun was shining down on us the whole time, it really couldn’t have been a better day for a hike!
We then headed to Mike’s parents for pizza and more Mother’s day celebrating. We had a great time catching up with family and watching the kids play and run around 🙂 I missed my Mom so much on Mother’s Day but I am so glad she can be in Brazil with her Mama on this special day!
After lunch we headed home and I just soaked up every minute with my chickadees until bed time. There was a stunning out of this world sunset that night which really was the cherry on top of my Mother’s Day Sunday 😉 Hope all the mamas out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day surrounded by those you love 💗
