We celebrated Mother's Day a few days early this year which was fine by me.
The Friday before, Nolan had his 1 year check up in the morning. We took the whole family…then made a little outing of lunch and play in the play area at the Galleria.
When we got home that afternoon- Nolan took his nap…and the girls and I headed out for pedicures.
My favorite food is Mexican food…and it was such a beautiful day out….so we took the whole family and headed to Gloria's to eat and sit on the patio. We enjoyed great food…and the kids were really good, too!
After we ate…we decided to just walk around the lake/harbor area for a bit.
Me & my girlies.
After we snapped a few pictures and walked around a bit…we were about to head home when we walked right past Coldstone Creamery. We were having just the best time…I was so laid back about the kids' "schedules"…and didn't care that it was past their bedtime…I was just wanting to enjoy the moment and our time together. So Geoff and I looked at each other and decided we needed ice cream.
It was a good choice! We had fun just sitting right outside and enjoying our dessert and each other. Oh…and just so I don't forget….we all got single scoop cones. Grace licked her scoop right off the cone….TWICE! Haha! I had to laugh. The first scoop she lost fell in the store so they gave her another. The second one fell outside…and Daddy was sweet enough to give her his.
Nolan loves ice cream (and pretty much anything we are eating). He was so funny. He'd take a lick…walk off…then come right back. It was like he was connected by a little bungee cord because he wouldn't go too far and come right back.
(since this picture was taken…we have successfully found him shoes that fit is chubby little feet!)
By the time we got home…these kids were TIRED. Parker made the observation that we hadn't really been home all day long…and asked if we could just stay home in our pajamas all day the next day. :)
Just so blessed and thankful to be their mother. I pray that I'm the mother God's called me to be. To train them up the way they should go.
