Mother’s Day 2016

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 πŸ™‚ Β 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 Β 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, Β 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰ Hope all the mamas out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day surrounded by those you love πŸ’—
